Now available as a stand-alone edition, the famous humorist's debut collection-a runaway bestseller in 1926-ranges from lighthearted self-deprecation to acid-tongued satire, all the while gleefully puncturing sentimental cliches about relations between men and women. Known as the wittiest woman in America and a founder of the fabled Algonquin Round Table, Dorothy Parker was also one of the Jazz Age's most beloved poets. Her verbal dexterity and cynical humor were on full display in the many poems she published in Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, and Life and collected in her first book in 1926. The poems in Enough Rope range from lighthearted self-deprecation to acid-tongued satire, all the while gleefully puncturing sentimental cliches about the relations between men and women.

Enough Rope has established Dorothy Parker as one of my favorite poets. She's a scream and everything I like in a poet: funny, relatable, rhyming and metered poems, etc. She writes mainly about boys and her lot in life. Dorothy is the one who came up with "Men seldom make passes/At girls who wear glasses." I love her and I loved this book. ( )

Poetry that speaks to me. ( )

Much sadder than I had anticipated. There are some very clever gems in here. One, called "Men", I thought could just as easily be called "Women". Well said though either way. This contains "Resume" and some other old standbys. There were a lot on lost love. The second part was lighter than the first. ( )

Poems, some in fixed forms (e.g. Ballade at Thirty-Five, Roundel (passing fair --grade D-) . often very short quatrains etc, almost always slightly acidic, some witty, others merely sad, often about unhappy love. When young, I wrote a reply to "song of One of theGrls, tyng to match all her references e.g. "Here I my heart I am Helen... with "Here in my heart I am Hector... ( )
