Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Guy Wetmore Carryl (March 4, 1873 - April 1, 1904) was an American humorist and poet. Carryl was born in New York City, the first-born of author Charles Edward Carryl and Mary R. Wetmore. When he was only 20 years old he had his first article published in The New York Times. He graduated from Columbia University in 1895 when he was 22 years of age. During his college years he had written plays for amateur performances. One of his professors was Harry Thurston Peck, who was scandalized by Carryl's famous quote "It takes two bodies to make one seduction," which was a somewhat risqu statement for those times.show more
