Baled Hay: A Drier Book than Walt Whitman's ''Leaves o' Grass''

Book cover
By: (1850-1896)

In "Baled Hay" by Bill Nye, readers are taken on a whimsical journey through the author's observations and musings on various subjects. Nye's writing style is humorous and easy to follow, making this book an enjoyable read for those looking for a lighthearted escape.

However, despite Nye's witty commentary, some readers may find the content of "Baled Hay" to be lacking in depth and substance. The book often feels like a series of disjointed thoughts rather than a cohesive narrative, leaving readers wanting more from the author.

Additionally, Nye's comparisons to Walt Whitman's "Leaves o' Grass" may leave some literary enthusiasts disappointed, as the two works are vastly different in tone and style.

Overall, "Baled Hay" is a drier read than expected, but Nye's charm and humor still shine through. It may not be for everyone, but those looking for a light and entertaining read will likely appreciate what this book has to offer.

Book Description:
There can really be no excuse for this last book of trite and beautiful sayings. I do not attempt, in any way, to palliate this great wrong. I would not do so even if I had an idea what palliate meant. . . . I have taken great care to thoroughly eradicate anything that would have the appearance of poetry in this work, and there is not a thought or suggestion contained in it that would soil the most delicate fabric. Do not read it all at once, however, in order to see whether he married the girl or not. Take a little at a time, and it will cure gloom on the "similia simili-bus curanter" principle. - Summary by Bill Nye
