The Art of Biography Is different from Geography.Geography is about Maps, But Biography is about Chaps.With these rhyming lines, English novelist and humorist Edmund Clerihew Bentley introduces this book and an unusual form of verse of his own invention. Bentley’s four-line poems, known as ‚clerihews, ‚ offer satirical views of historical figures, from Edward the Confessor and Odo of Bayeux to Sir Walter Raleigh, Jane Austen, Karl Marx, Theodore Roosevelt, and many others. The witty verses are accompanied by the book’s outstanding feature: whimsical full-page illustrations by G. K. Chesterton.
