Thomas Hood was a happy humorist whose works and life were an illustration of the great moral truth. His sense of humor was a balance between pride of knowledge and limitless imagination.

The list of Hood's separately published works is as follows:

Odes and Addresses to Great People (1825)

Whims and Oddities (two series, 1826 and 1827)

The Plea of the Midsummer Fairies, hero and Leander, Lycus the Centaur and other Poems (1827), his only collection of serious verse

The Dream of Eugene Aram, the Murderer (1831)

Tylney Hall, a novel (3 vols., 1834)

The Comic Annual (1830–1842)

Hood's Own, or, Laughter from Year to Year (1838, second series, 1861)

Up the Rhine (1840)

Hood's Magazine and Comic Miscellany (1844–1848)

National Tales (2 vols., 1837), a collection of short novelettes

Whimsicalities (1844)


The theme of the poem is the bleakness of a November day in London.

A heavy fog—and perhaps a bit of smog from chimney smoke—obscures everything: the sun, the moon, the steeples, the roadways, the parks, even the faces of people on the streets.

Dogs(after Ogden Nash)

The dog is man`s best friend.

He has a tail on one end.

Up in front he has teeth.

And four legs underneath.

Dogs like to bark.

They like it best after dark.

A dog that is indoors

Wants to be outdoors.

But let him out – and what then?

He wants to be in again.

Dogs cheer up people who are frowning.

And rescue people who are drowning.

Dogs in the country have fun.

They run and run and run!

But in the city this species,

Is walked around on leashes.

Dogs are friendly, loyal and honest.

Of all the pets I like them most.
