Have you heard of Theodor Seuss Geisel?! Well, if you don’t recognize this full name, you surely recognize the middle name. Yes, it is ‘the’ Dr. Seuss who is behind the name Theodor Seuss Geisel. Seuss is actually the surname of his mother. And, because the name is of German origin, or to be more precise Bavarian, it should be pronounced as Zoice, not Soose. Anyways, how we pronounce the name is not as important as the fact what do we know him for. And we know Seuss Geisel for many things, but mostly for publishing children’s books under the mentioned pen name. He used other pen names as well, such as Theo LeSieg (which is Geisel backwards) and on one occasion he used the name Rosetta Stone. In his books he used rhymes and anapestic meter, a characteristic which made them particularly popular among children. The foot, as the main metrical unit has a long tradition in the Western culture, and Seuss Geisel can be seen as a continuer of this tradition. If we carefully consider the method and the approach of Seuss, we will see why he was so popular among the audience, especially among the children. The creativity, the utilization of the anapestic meter, combined with the rhymes which are easy to remember is what made his books favored by generations of children. Not to mention the fact that Seuss Geisel is one of the most prolific authors of children’s books, writing 46 books throughout his long career.
