Ogden Nash
Ogden Nash
Ogden Nash {1902-1971}, widely regarded as one of America's most accomplished writers of light verse, applied his love of language to poems and limericks, children's stories, and lyrics for Broadway musicals. Fond of inventing words, creative misspellings, and unexpected rhymes, Nash concocted whimsical titles for his 20-some collections of poems, including "The Bad Parents' Garden of Verse" {1936}, "I'm a Stranger Here Myself" {1938}, "The Face Is Familiar" {1940}, and "You Can't Get There From Here" {1957}.
