9781331697497: Collected Parodies (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Collected Parodies

This collection includes almost the whole of three previous books: "Imaginary Speeches," "Steps to Parnassus" and "Tricks of the Trade," which contain all the parodies I have ever published or, I imagine, ever shall publish. For permission to reprint from the first two I am indebted to Messrs. Allen and Unwin. Some of the parodies have been re-grouped; a few have been omitted. I was not quite sure what to do about the "Imaginary Speeches" in which I endeavoured to exhibit the mannerisms of mind and language of a number of politicians who were prominent in 1909, when they were written. The speeches dealt with a hypothetical future which will not now exist. They mentioned persons no longer conspicuous. They treated problems which have been either shelved or partially solved: one, for instance, visualized women's suffrage coming under conditions very different from those which saw its achievement. I have, therefore, compromised by reprinting three only of them in the hope that, as some readers, when they first appeared, found them interesting as topical criticism, so others may now find them interesting as recalling "the world before the war."
