There are the standards favorites: Lewis Carroll, Edward Lear, Samuel Butler, Bret Harte, Oliver Goldsmith, and many many others. The humor writers are almost all British with an occasional American thrown in.
My real sense after reading the collection is how insignificant and small light verse is when compared with ' true poetry'. I may well be wrong but nothing in this collection moved me very much.
