I enjoyed these cartoons of literary life in a rather classic "clean line" style.

Those are fun.

The "Host of Daffodils" will make everyone laugh, especially anyone who has gone hiking in the spring in WW's district. That must happen to so many people: "How the hell does that bleeding poem go ... ?

I liked the children's lit and Why I Write especially as well.

I love these. I passed them on to a friend who writes romance novels as there is a perfect one for her, "The heat of the moment". Thank you.

Wonderful. Thanks, lagatta.

My favourite literary cartoon is Martin Rowson's take on "The Waste Land" -- done in film noir style, with many Raymond Chandler allusions (the Maltese Falcon standing in for the Grail, etc.). Unfortunately I can only find text descriptions on-line, no images. I'll keep looking.
