Extractions: But for collaring criminals. The clerihew is a four-line poem with a rhyming scheme of AABB. The first line traditionally is, or ends in, a person's name; the meter is often mangled, if not ignored altogether; and the overall intent of the poem stresses entertainment over instruction, humor over fact. The term "clerihew" comes from Edmund Clerihew Bentley, who wrote the first known clerihew as a schoolboy. He went on to produce, under the name E. Clerihew B.A. (and with a little help from schoolmate G. K. Chesterton) a collection of clerihews called Biography for Beginners (1905). Bentley is also known for his groundbreaking mystery novel, Trent's Last Case (1911), which helped make plot and character as important as the puzzle in English detective fiction.

Bentley July 10 March 30 ), was a popular English novelist and humorist of the early twentieth century, and the inventor of the clerihew , an irregular form of humorous verse on biographical topics. Born in London , and educated at St Paul's School and Merton College, Oxford , Bentley worked as a journalist on several newspapers, including the Daily Telegraph . His first published collection of poetry, titled Biography for Beginners (1905), popularized the clerihew form; it was followed by two other collections, in 1929 and 1939. His detective novel, Trent's Last Case (1913), was much praised, numbering Dorothy L. Sayers among its admirers, and with its labyrinthine and mystifying plotting can be seen as the first truly modern mystery. The success of the work inspired him, after 23 years, to write a sequel, Trent's Own Case (1936). There was also a book of Trent short stories, Trent Intervenes . Several of his books were reprinted in the early 2000s by House of Stratus From 1936 until 1949 Bentley was president of the Detection Club and contributed to both of their radio serials broadcast in 1930 and 1931 and published in 1983 as The Scoop and Behind The Screen . He died at the age of 80 in 1956. His son Nicolas Bentley was a famous illustrator.

Extractions: Home Words and Wordplay Edmund Clerihew Bentley (1875-1956) is remembered mainly for his classic detective story Trent's Last Case and for the humorous verse form that was named after him - the clerihew. It was at the age of sixteen, while he was at St. Paul's School in London, that Bentley first started writing clerihews, as a diversion from school work. G. K. Chesterton, Bentley's life-long friend, was at St. Paul's at the same time, and he too wrote clerihews. Here is one of Bentley's original clerihews from this period: Sir Humphrey Davy Of having discovered sodium. Bentley's first collection of verse in this vein was published in 1905 as Biography For Beginners . Further collections appeared in 1929 and in 1939. It was soon after publication of the first volume that the name CLERIHEW became applied to this particular form of light verse. What exactly is a clerihew? Frances Stillman in The Poet's Manual and Rhyming Dictionary defines it as 'a humorous pseudo-biographical quatrain, rhymed as two couplets, with line of uneven length more or less in the rhythm of prose'. Add to this, that the name of the subject usually ends the first or, less often, the second line, and that the humour of the clerihew is whimsical rather than satiric, and there you have a complete definition. Here is a brief selection of my favourite Bentley clerihews:
