PARODIES

OF THE WORKS OF

ENGLISH & AMERICAN AUTHORS.

COLLECTED AND ANNOTATED BY

WALTER HAMILTON,

Fellow of the Royal Geographical and Royal Historical Societies:

Author of A History of National Anthems and Fatriotic Songs,"
," "A Memoir of George Cruikshank ;”
"The Poets Laureate of England;" "The Esthetic Movement in England,” etc.

"We maintain that, far from converting virtue into a parodox, and degrading truth by ridicule, PARODY will only strike at
what is chimerical and false; it is not a piece of buffoonery so much as a critical exposition. What do we parody but the absurdities
of writers, who frequently make their heroes act against nature, common-sense, and truth? After all, it is the public, not we, who are
the authors of these PARODIES.'
D'ISRAELI'S Curiosities of Literature.
