As reported in the Washington Times, Ernest W. LeFever has just published Liberating the Limerick, which includes 230 representative examples of the undersigned's preferred poetic form, contributed by over fifty writers, not including the undersigned. Those of you interested in purchasing the book can find it available for purchase here. You may note that the book has been criticized on the Amazon website for its principles of selection, although the exclusion from the collection of the works of the author of the (still unpublished) collection, Limericks for Lawyers, is not a part of the criticism.
Thanks so very much to my colleague, Zachary Calo, who took time off from work on his seventh doctoral dissertation (which is really remarkable when you consider that he is only 23 years old) to send me cheering news of the revival of interest in the Limerick.
