Here we have both the book and the person, and valued is what they truly are. Well leave it to the eminent poet, scholar, wit, and man of letters, Louis Untermeyer, to explain his interest in ribaldry, the subject of this delightful anthology.In the broadest sense, the worlds favorite humor has been a playful expression of primitive sensuality. It has, at times, been tinctured with self-mockery, a sort of protective derision, a comic exposure of what is condemned in public and gleefully practiced in private.

The satisfactions of the body, from food to sex, are responsible for some of the wisest and wittiest as well as some of the most rollicking and ribald writing in literature...Here are about 300 separate ribald items, prose and poetry, arranged chronologically by the author (from Arnacreon-500 B.C. to late Twentieth Century). Here are the naturals in ribaldry, taken from the works of Boccaccio, Chaucer, Villon, Rabelais, Balzacā€”and some surprises, by such talented folks as Cervantes, Defoe, Burns, Franklin, Byron, Maugham, Anderson, Mencken, Runyon and a host of others.
