Limeriques Estapafúrdios

Ludicrous Limericks
Text by Tatiana Belinky


A limerick is a form of verse, written in five-line, used in poems of humour and nonsense, which gained worldwide renown with Edward Lear (1812-1888). “Estapafúrdio” means something nonsensical, out of logic. As limericks are usually accompanied by absurd illustrations, these poems balance one foot in reality and the other in the wildest fantasy!
