The Limerickiad: From Gilgamesh to Shakespeare (Volume 1)

Witty, uproarious and tongue-in-cheek, over the past five years Martin Rowson’s limericks and cartoons have retold the story of world literature, appearing each week in the Independent on Sunday. Now collected together for the first time, The Limerickiad takes us from Gilgamesh to the Complete Works of Shakespeare, showcasing the author’s reverence for the original texts alongside a healthy dollop of hilarity and pure filth.
