Includes parodies of Thomas Moore, Rudyard Kipling, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Edgar Allan Poe, Alfred Tennyson and William Shakespeare.
This is a first listing of a collection underwritten by George Ball and received at Lilly Library during the school year 1955-1956. No attempt has been made to research or verify name forms, titles, or authorship for this preliminary listing. It is only a primitive finding aid for the user and a record of the collector's notes taken from his envelopes which had to be removed from the materials.
On the envelopes, red entries reflect what appear to be the collector's indications of the author and/or the work being parodied. Red asterisks indicate that a copy of all or part of the work apparently being parodied is included. Black entries reflect what appear to be titles, first lines, and authors of parodies; black entries in quotation marks appear to be first lines of parodies.
Box 8 contains parodies not presently identified with an author or a known work.
