About the clerihew

A series of posts about clerihews – humorous biographical four-line verses about a contemporary or historical figure, where the rhyming scheme is AABB and the name of the figure must form part of the first rhyme.

Clerihews were the invention of E.C. (Edmund Clerihew) Bentley. During his lifetime, Bentley published several volumes of clerihews, where each verse was accompanied by a drawing that illustrated the verse.
