The Good Citizen's Alphabet Summary


The Good Citizen's Alphabet by Bertrand Russell

`E: Erroneous: Capable of being proved true'; `J: Jolly: The downfall of our enemies'; `M: Mystery: What I understand and you don't' . . . Enter the delightful, satirical world of the Good Citizen, according to one of the best-known writers and philosophers of modern times. In this pocket-sized book, Bertrand Russell's witty, subversive A-Z encompasses pedants and nincompoops, knowledge and virtue, providing a diverting and entertaining guide to the English alphabet. Brought back into print for the first time since the 1970s, the brief texts are illustrated with the lively drawings of Franciszka Themerson, a leading figure of the twentieth century avant-garde, whose apt and amusing images add an anarchic spirit to this delightful gift book - perfect for linguistic novices and eloquent eggheads alike. Facsimile pages reproduce the vintage look and feel of the original 1953 publication.
