Eruditions!: (Being the Attempt to Make Genteel the Language of the Lyric)

Susan has a fascination with the absurdities of the English language which she has effectively combined with her love of popular music to bring you this witty little volume. Written in the most pedantic and stilted manner, lyrics of familiar songs from the past become surprisingly poetic and amusing as they seem to take on a new language of their own. Try not to peek at the title before reading through all of her innovative purple poetry, for to do so is to deprive oneself of a ridiculous beauty. Ms. Burns has given us more than an imaginative guessing game, she has bestowed upon us a rare new art form.
