Chesterton and his best friend published a book that changed the way authors describe human life and permanently established a new literary genre.Maybe thats a little too epic.

But its mostly true.In 1905 E.C. Bentleys book Biography for Beginners went to print with short verses accompanied by illustrations from G.K.C.Each poem begins with a persons name.

Bentley’s style caught on and the poetic form “Clerihew,” taken from his middle name, was born.This short booklet is my attempt to continue this tradition.The man who was EdmundLived across the Big PondHe liked to write poetryTo be illustrated by G.K.C.Hopefully this example adequately lowers your expectations.The book includes Clerihews and sketches of Francis Schaeffer, Russell Moore, John Calvin, Charles Darwin, Chuck Colson, Sam Harris, and others.Enjoy.
