Biography Of Ogden Nash Essay, Research Paper

Biography of Ogden Nash

Fredric Ogden Nash was an American humorist who lived from 1902 to 1971.

He was born in 1902 in Rye, New York, where he grew up with well educated

parents. Microsoft Encarta 95 said that his parents names were Edmund Strudwick

Nash and Mattie Nash. During his childhood years, Nash was educated at several

private schools. At these schools, he enjoyed writing his own comical and

dramatic free verse poems.

After graduating out of grammar school, Nash moved on to one of the best

private high schools in the east: St. George’s in Newport, Rhode Island.

Moving on in his life, he enrolled at Harvard at the age of 18 (from 1920-1921).

Contemporary American Poets stated that Nash then took a job in the

editorial and publicity department at the Doubleday and Doran Publishing Company.

He worked very hard at this position, moving up the “executive” ladder very

quickly. In only 5 years of work, he became a well-known editor around the

publishing business. Nash then realized that his name was known all over the

publishing companies; and he started to compose works of free verse.

Mindscape Complete Reference Library CD stated that 1931 was the

greatest year of Nash’s life. In June, he married Frances Rider Leonard of

Baltimore, Maryland. Also in 1931, he published two books of free verse:

“Hard Lines” and “Free Wheeling.” Contemporary American Poets made an

interesting statement on these first two books by Nash: “These two books show

poetry of remarkable freedom of scansion (rhythm pattern) and uncoventional

feelings of thoughts.” Contemporary American Poets showed clearly that Nash

“paved” the way for authors of free verse with absolutely no pattern.

After working on other poetry books such as Happy Days (1933), The Bad

Parent’s Garden of Verse (1936), and I’m a Stranger Here Myself (1938), Nash

retired from his job at Doubleday to focus all of his time on writing free verse.

He went on to write many poems, all being free verse. Some were serious, but

most of them were humorous. Other examples of his collections include: Good

Intentions (1942), Versus (1949), Family Reunion (1950), Parents Keep Out (1951),

The Moon Is Shining Bright as Day (1953), The Private Dining Room (1953), You

Can’t Get There from Here (1957), Everyone but Thee and Me (1962), Marriage

Lines (1964), Cruise of the Aardvark (1967), There’s Always Another Windmill

(1968), and Bed Riddance (1968).

Contemporary American Poets also said that Nash appeared in a dozen

periodicals and in Hearst’s New York Journal. It also stated that Nash had to

pretend to be funnier than he really is, and he has to be funny when he wants to

be serious.

Microsoft Encarta 95 said that Nash also wrote the musical comedy One

Touch of Venus (1943) in collaboration with the humorist S. J. Perelman and the

composer Kurt Weill.

Contemporary American Poets stated that Nash had blond curly hair,

glasses, and was adept at reciting his unpublished verse.

Ogden Nash was the prolific producer and one of the founders of humorous

verse. He passed away in 1971 at his Baltimore home.
