本书是威廉·施文克·吉尔伯特谐趣诗合集的第一部。吉尔伯特因与阿瑟·萨利文(Arthur Sullivan)一起创作喜歌剧剧本而一举成名,而这些作品写于他成名之前。吉尔伯特在创作中形成了自己独特的"topsy-turvy"(七颠八倒)风格,在这种风格下通过设定一个荒谬的前提并引申出符合逻辑但十分可笑的后果来制造幽默。本书也展示了吉尔伯特的愤世嫉俗、讽刺性的幽默感。

Nothing else quite like the Ballads has ever been produced in the English language. They contain both satire and nonsense, as well as a great deal of utter absurdity. The Ballads were read aloud at private dinner-parties, public banquets and even in the House of Lords. The ballads have been much published, and there are even recordings of readings of some of them.

The Bab Ballads are a collection of light verse by W. S. Gilbert, illustrated with his own comic drawings. Gilbert wrote the Ballads before he became famous for his comic opera librettos with Arthur Sullivan. In writing this work, Gilbert developed his unique "topsy-turvy" style, where the humour was derived by setting up a ridiculous premise and working out its logical consequences, however absurd. The Ballads also reveal Gilbert's cynical and satirical approach to humour. They became famous on their own, as well as being a source for plot elements, characters and songs that Gilbert would recycle in the Gilbert and Sullivan operas. The Bab Ballads take their name from Gilbert's childhood nickname, and he later began to sign his illustrations "Bab".

威廉·施文克·吉尔伯特(1836年11月-1911年5月),英国剧作家、文学家、诗人。他与作曲家阿瑟·萨利文合作的14部喜剧闻名于世,其中最著名的为《皮纳福号军舰》(H.M.S. Pinafore)、《彭赞斯的海盗》(The Pirates of Penzance)以及在音乐剧院中表演场次最多的历史剧之一《日本天皇》(The Mikado)。这些作品以及他们其他萨沃伊歌剧作品如今在使用英语的国家依旧经常演出,包括歌剧公司、剧团、学校和社区演出团体。这些作品中的一些台词已经成为英语的一部分。

William Schwenck Gilbert(18 November 1836 – 29 May 1911) was an English dramatist, librettist, poet and illustrator best known for the fourteen comic operas (known as the Savoy operas) produced in collaboration with the composer Sir Arthur Sullivan. The most famous of these include H.M.S. Pinafore, The Pirates of Penzance and one of the most frequently performed works in the history of musical theatre, The Mikado. These, as well as several of the other Savoy operas, continue to be frequently performed in the English-speaking world and beyond by opera companies, repertory companies, schools and community theatre groups. Lines from these works have become part of the English language, such as "short, sharp shock", "What, never? Well, hardly ever!", and "Let the punishment fit the crime".
