The most significant achievements Nash - acute, but not wicked satirical poems. He had an inimitable ability to make fun of pompous stupidity, in particular - ridiculous biases and quirks. One of the most characteristic of his techniques is that after a short string given interminably long, and inside it there are a few deliberately clumsy rhymes. Skillful versemonger, Nash sought he needed effects, consistently adhering to strict rules of versification. Perhaps the most striking example of how suddenly he can use the traditional poetic tools - Christmas poem, which almost did not happen (The Christmas That Almost Wasn't, 1957).
