Ogden Nash, part I
Martin Levin, teacher and editor of “The Phoenix Nest” in “The Saturday Review,” call the humor of Ogden Nash brief and critical. He explains how Nash reshapes verse in interest of humor. Nash discusses humor and the apprehensions of beginning writers, then reads “Outcome of Mr. McCloud’s Gratitude,” “Lady in Slacks,” “It Is Indeed Spinach,” “Llama,” “A Prawn is a Prawn,” “Will Consider Situation,” “Drink with Something In It,” and “The Sniffle.” Nash notes the difference between his work and that of AP Herbert and Dorothy Parker.
