Very Good. Book An illustratedcollection of humourous stories and poems by Thomas Hood. Thomas Hood(23 May 1799 3 May 1845) was aBritishhumouristandpoet. Hood wrote humorously on many contemporary issues. Writer and friend of Hood, William Makepeace Thackeray, gave this assessment of Thomas Hood: Oh sad, marvellous picture of courage, of honesty, of patient endurance, of duty struggling against pain! ...Here is one at least without guile, without pretension, without scheming, of a pure life, to his family and little modest circle of friends tenderly devoted. Hood was described as 'a lively poet' and as 'the finest English poet' between the generation ofShelley and Tennyson. The full title of this volume reads: Hood's Own: or, Laughter from Year to Year.
