The Seven Lady Godivas

By Seuss, Dr




The Seven Lady Godivas: The True Facts Concerning History's Barest Family is a picture book of the tale of Lady Godiva, written and illustrated by Dr. Seuss. One of Seuss's few books written for adults, its original 1939 publication by Random House was a failure and was eventually remaindered. However, it later gained popularity as Seuss himself grew in fame, and was republished in 1987.

The Seven Lady Godivas.

Seuss, Dr. [Theodor Seuss Geisel]

New York: Random House, 1987. First edition of the re-issue of this classic Dr. Seuss title. Inscribed by the author, "For Jennifer with best wishes Dr. Seuss." Fine in a near fine price-clipped dust jacket. Referring to his recent children's books and advertisements for Flit and Essomarine, Seuss explained that The Seven Lady Godivas was written 'to escape the monotony of writing about nothing but men folks and children, dragons or fish' In his college studies of Tennyson, Seuss may well have come across the 1842 poem 'Godiva.' During his time in England after Dartmouth, he no doubt came across the legend again. The theme of the Lady Godiva story-championing the rights of the common man-is what links this 'adult' book to his 'children's' stories and his political cartoons" (Cohen, 195).
