Pain, Barry: Playthings and Parodies. v1. 13 Nov 2022

Barry Eric Odell Pain (28 Sep. 1864 – 05 May 1928) was an English journalist, poet, humorist and writer. During his lifetime, he was perhaps best known as a writer of parody and lightly humorous stories, but now is also noted for his tales touched with fantasy, horror, and the supernatural. He also wrote stories of mystery and suspense. His humor has been characterized by some modern critics as “a surreal forerunner to Monty Python.”

=============
Presented here, a collection of essays, sketches, and parodied poetry

A number of the “Sketches in London” simply describe Pain’s observations of life in the city. But the majority of this collection provides many chuckles, offering humor ranging from subtle and sly to broad and twisty. If your taste runs to twisty, be sure to visit the final section, “Home Pets” — these pieces are bizarre indeed.
