Mister Ron's Basement #1266
Eugene Field had the kind of popularity in the 19th century that newspaper humorists rarely experienced in later years. He wrote fun prose and poetry, sometimes thinly disguised political satire, and other times witty observations of life in the United States.
Today we offer a wonderful poem from 1890 concerning Eugene Field's great love in life - 'In Praise of Pie.'
After you've heard this, you may want to go back and listen to Episode Number 753, featuring Field's 1880 poem 'Apple Pie and Cheese.' To get it, just Click Here.
Time: approx four and a half minutes
