This review is from: The Game of Words: The Remarkable Exhuberance of the English Language (Hardcover)
This has appeared in many editions and versions and is an absolute delight. It is educational but never dull, informative but never boring, interesting but never tiresome.
This tome covers everything from alphabetical poems to chronograms, acrostics to clerihews, anagrams to cumulative poems, acronyms to cryptograms - and that is just a selection from the two alphabetical sections of 'a' and 'c'.
A trio of brief samples from this excellent anthology:
A quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.
A man, a plan, a canal - Panama.
