Peter Sellers was one of the judges in a contest to find out whether anyone could write poetry as badly as McGonagall did with cash prizes for those who could measure up, or down, to the great McGonagall. It was declared no contest. None of the entries were bad enough."This poet of Victoria's time stands unique and unchallenged as history's worst poet." (Chicago Tribune) His incredible poetry has been translated into Russian, Japanese, Thai, Bulgarian, Romanian and many other languages. In Great Britain sales of his books now top those of Browning and Tennyson. "A real genius and the only memorable truly bad poet in our language." (Times Literary Supplement)
