The old dog barks backwards by Ogden Nash( Book )

16 editions published between 1968 and 1973 in English and held by 1,587 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For four decades, Ogden Nash was among the most perceptive and valuable chroniclers of life in twentieth-century America, a social observer of the sharpest insight, whose humor, sanity and cheerful cynicism appealed to countless numbers of people of all ages. The Old Dog Barks Backwards is a posthumouse collection of seventy-seven Nash verses, many of which have been published in magazines, but none of which has ever appeared in book form. There is no basic theme to them -- the verses range in their subject matter as widely as did Nash's interests, which were very wide indeed

Good intentions by Ogden Nash( Book )

46 editions published between 1942 and 1965 in 3 languages and held by 1,563 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To present an adequate picture of the blithe, careless quality of Ogden Nash's rib-tickling poems one would have to be another Ogden Nash -- and he is sui generis. He takes his fellow man, and woman, apart in his new collection of vivacious verse -- the first in four years -- with engaging cheerfulness and an insight into their foibles that is almost uncanny." -- New York Times, Edward Laroque Tinker, 1942

You can't get there from here; [poems] by Ogden Nash( Book )

21 editions published between 1953 and 2018 in English and Russian and held by 1,494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ogden Nash scales the heights of hilarity with a few choice thoughts on parents, grandparents, nature lovers (or haters), eyesight, rhyming, the cough, privacy, buses, books, card games and taxis. Our Boy has a word for everything. In most cases it's the last one."--Kirkus Reviews
The private dining room, and other new verses by Ogden Nash( Book )

25 editions published between 1949 and 1964 in English and held by 1,468 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nash belongs to none of the 20th century's poetic movements though he borrowed from all of them. He published his first collection during the height of High Modernism and his last in the early 70s with the Language poets and Second New York School bubbling around him. 'The Private Dining Room' pops and fizzes on the level of sound poetry, both a sendup to the form and to 1950s propriety and etiquette guides." -- Ondioline website
Versus by Ogden Nash( Book )

33 editions published between 1942 and 1969 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Who would be so rashery To rhyme on ogdonnashery, (Which is a climate Most sublimate For verses awfully dashery)? On themes quite indefatigable His latest book's compatible -- No stone unturned -- No turn unstoned -- On questions burned On facts unknowned. You'll turn this Nash Right into cash."--Kirkus Reviews
Many long years ago by Ogden Nash( Book )

24 editions published between 1945 and 1967 in 3 languages and held by 1,326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nash did not often discuss his comic patterns, but did once explain his formula for the telling use of cliché:?The trick is that it must be somebody else?s cliché and not the author?s own.? Typical is the treatment that Nash gives to the overworked advice,?Hate the sin but love the sinner,? in?Nevertheless,? from Many Long Years Ago."--Poetry Foundation website
