Hello dear readers!
Today I am going to introduce you to British humor with a poetry, drawing sketch and text collection called John Lennon in his own write by John Lennon. This collection was published in 1964, when he was 24, so John Lennon was a member ( singer ) of a British band from Liverpool.
The heading should have been written like this: « in his own right » but the author chose to write « write » instead to make a play on words.
In this book there are are a lot of play on words.
The introduction of the book was written by Sir Paul McCartney and the outroduction is a weird drawing.
My favorite poem in this book is « I remember Arnold ». It was the first poem that I have ever read and understand in english even if I had to read it more than one hundred times to be able to get it.
In this poem, the author talks about two « tyke »( means boys ) that he remembers « as if’twer yesterday ». One used to be « always dead on time for his destination now he’s dead on line ».
I found this expression funny because next, the author said between bracket: meaning he’s been got by a train or something. Here, he did a play on words.
I recommend this collection to you all because it’s easy to read and to understand even though you can not comprehend his textes because this collection is considered as none sense. And I also advice you to read it in english because I don’t think you will find the same humor and puns in a translated version as like the original one
Hope you will read it.
