    One thought on “The Tough Coughs As He Ploughs the Dough: Early Writings and Cartoons”

    1. A wonderful collection of Dr. Seuss's magazine work from the '20s and '30s. Everything is printed in black & white; I don't know if any of the originals were color or not. In any case the book is stuffed with so many interesting ideas. No wonder Dr. Seuss went on to such a brilliant career.There are four sections:The Essays of Theophrastus Seuss: Roughly a dozen of these, 1-2 pages each, funny short stories masquerading as serious essays.Dr. Seuss's Little Educational Charts: Have you ever s [...]

    2. An excerpt-Clearing up a MisunderstandingMany people believe that the terms "high-brow" and "low-brow" actually have something to do with the human forehead. This is erroneous. What they really refer to is a man's capacity as a brau drinker. In Germany, the gentleman who can down a high brau is accepted as an aristocrat. If you can only absorb a low brau, you are considered a member of an inferior social stratum.

    3. Odd little cartoons and pieces more interesting in a historical sense than actually entertaining today. Still a quick, fun read.

    4. The Tough Coughs As He Ploughs the Dough: Early Writings and Cartoons by Dr. Seuss is a collection of writings from 1927 to 1937 by Theodore Geisel, from the time before be became known to the world as Dr. Seuss. These are not works for children, but rather humorous pieces for magazines like Judge, Life, College Humor, and Liberty. Filled with word play and absurdist writing, the pieces have lost some of their humor but are still interesting background reading for those interested in Dr. Seuss. [...]

    5. Very entertaining. While I knew that Seuss had a career before children's books, I hadn't realized his knack for absurdist writing (along the lines of James Thurber) as well as drawing. The introduction, honestly, was rather boring-- I liked getting the timeline of Seuss's work, but there was lots of name-dropping and no mention of Seuss's more controversial aspects.

    6. A collection of humorous early writings by Dr. Seuss. These are smart comics that reveal Seuss's fascination with language and the individual uses of words and phrases. Readers will recognize familiar creatures in Seuss's artwork and will grasp a sense of his inspiration for his body of work. Overall, a fun title for adults who grew up with the Seuss library of juvenile titles and who want to explore some of Seuss's adult writings.

    7. Very dated material, crude drawings, and generally uninteresting writing. There were a few decent pieces, but overall, his "forgotten works" can stay that way. If you're interested in the history of Dr. Seuss, you'll want to read this since this is how he got started. For those that just want good books, read his other stuff.

    8. Excellent and hefty anthology of Seuss early writings and cartoons! The humor is geared towards adults, nicely catches the social quirks of his day, and has more absurdity per page than probably anything I've ever read.

    9. This was the perfect book for me when I was a thirteen-year-old with an interest in the English language, so if you know anybody like that it's probably perfect for them.
