James Anstead Takes A Trip Around
Limericks, in James B. Anstead’s opinion, have tremendous power. In fact, that is the focus of his new book: travel and rhymes. In Around the World in Five Lines, Anstead takes his readers on a journey through humor and wordplay in just five lines, as the title suggests.
Anstead was brought up in a family that encouraged him to read and appreciate poetry. He works as an educator, but his writing has made him famous at least twice before. In the beginning, he published a newspaper essay on basketball. Second, he has read a few of his cleverly crafted limericks on a morning television show.
In his limericks, the seriousness of traveling is taken out of context and thrown out the window. The jovial stanzas he writes poke fun at the places Anstead has visited on his travels. He does this by presenting these places to the reader in a new and funny way that makes them feel like home.
There are two hundred limericks in Around the World in Five Lines. Each limerick is bursting with joy and amusement and adheres to the strict form of the poem. With James Anstead’s Around the World in Five Lines, which is now available at a bookstore near you, armchair travelers and readers with travel anxiety alike will enjoy going where they want to go.
