Nota de desambiguação
To whoever combined or wants to combine "The Best of Don Marquis" with "archyology": these are not the same work. "archyology" is pure archy, "Best of" contains some "old soak" and other stuff as well as some archy.

Most famous as the creator of the comic duo, Archie and Mehitabel, Marque had other solid columns, and short pieces to his credit. His place in American Literature of the twentieth Century is assured. This is quite a pleasant read, even today.

Verse & cartoons about a cockroach named "archy" who's a reincarnation of a free-verse poet & "mehitabel", a cat who's a reincarnation of Cleopatra. It's typed in lower-case b/c the cockroach isn't strong enuf to make the upper-case letters. I reckon this is an off-hand tribute to e e cummings but maybe not since cummings wd've been around 20 when this 1st appeared in the papers in 1916. Maybe cummings was influenced by marquis?

Anyway, when I 1st ran across this I probably thought that it had a strong premise & that's why I read it. However, I don't remember being ultimately that impressed by it. Hollywood shd do a remake w/ special effects & lots of inter-species sex.… (mais)

One of the funniest books I have ever read.
Zambaco | Apr 22, 2018 |
A potent mix of witty free form poetry and some top-notch drawings by Herriman make this volume a definite winner. These pieces originally appeared in newspapers and magazines in the 1916-1926 era, and numerous topical references to Prohibition and the like still keep their humour. A lot more thoughtful than many other pieces considered weightier.
