This definitive collection of the world’s rudest, lewdest limericks will perhaps finally bestow respectability upon stanzas long venerated in oral tradition. I have written my own fair share of shameless limericks (see below), but I include them among a broad spectrum of topics, rather than make it the focal point of my creative energy. In Sidney, too, we find a cry for simplicity housed within an elaborate construction: an exactly rhymed sonnet in iambic hexameter. On the other hand, Housman did have the compensation (not given to the rest of us) of knowing he’d composed one of the most heartbreaking tiny poems in the language.

Until quite recently, few of these verses had ever appeared in print for public consumption, although many had been privately printed and circulated from time to time. It turns out there are moments when wordplay, taking on a structural element, does hold things together. Choice of paint is a crucial decision—potentially elevating a room from the merely functional to the inviting and comely. Still, poetry is a tricky enterprise, routinely upending generalizations that would contain or confine it. When Edward Lear brought the limerick to public attention with his Book of Nonsense in 1846, it was more like a collection of nursery rhymes, intended for a very young audience.

This is likewise true of the goofy, pun-overrun quatrains of a number of light-verse poems by Thomas Hood (1799– 1845). Lear, who was born in 1812, was all about a bit of fun and wrote his ‘Book of Nonsense’ of 72 limericks in 1846 with exactly that in mind. Much legal writing, especially the writing of contracts, is devoted to stripping language of ambiguity, uncertainty.
