From 1940 to 1966 Brian O'Nolan, under the nom de plume Myles na Gopaleen (Myles of the Ponies), wrote a column in the Irish Times. He often told brief stories of two characters named Keats and Chapman. Ostensibly these were John Keats the Romantic poet and George Chapman the Elizabethan poet and translator of Homer. This was somewhat puzzling in that Chapman died more than 150 years before Keats was born. Nevertheless the duo appeared in dozens of little fables, each of which concluded with a wretched pun. Now Steven A. Jent has added 150 new stories to the lore of Keats and Chapman. Every one of them exhibits the most despicable wordplay of which he is capable.
