GLEESON, J.C., and B.N. MEYER, (transl.),
Ave Ogden! Nash in Latin. Poems by Ogden Nash translated in Latin. With drawings by K. Maryanski.
Andre Deutsch, 1975. 94p. ills. Hard bound with pictorial dust wrps. Wrps slightly yellowed. 'I'm very fond of the English language,'Ogden Nash (1902-1971) said. he loved Latin too, and rummaged through it reularly for his verses with a terrific irreverence for the rules of grammar and a wry sense of humour. Latin teacher J.C. Gleeson and one of his high school students, B.N. Meyer, have dressed Nash's verses in the language of Catullus and Juvenal, but keeping Nash's distinctive character. Fifty-two poems are combined with Ken Maryanski's witty drawings to make 'Ave Ogden!' a Roman holiday for every fan of Ogden Nash. (Publisher's information).
