Oxford Dictionary of Nursey Rhymes

Iona Opie


ISBN: 9780198600886


A new edition of a classic collection of over 500 rhymes and songs traditionally handed on to young children, together with notes on each item’s origins, publishing history, literary associations, variations, parodies, and parallels in other languages. Revised throughout to incorporate the results of recent bibliographical scholarship, and with a new essay on the singing tradition of nursery rhymes by Cecily Raysor Hancock, The Oxford Dictionary of NurseryRhymes re-establishes itself as the standard work on the subject, for scholars, parents, and children alike.
