Widely considered the father of "the university school of humor", English poet and wit Charles Stuart Calverley is best-known for his Ode to Tobacco (1862), Translations into English and Latin (1866), and his Complete Works , published in 1901. "[Calverley] was a true poet; he was one of the most graceful scholars that Cambridge ever produced; and all his exuberant fun was based on a broad and strong foundation of Greek, Latin and English literature" (George W. E. Russell).
