Product Description

Description / Cabbage Heads and Chess Kings

Cabbage Heads and Chess Kings is a book of witty remarks about unusual chess positions and strange games by famous old chess masters. The title to the book comes from the famous Lewis Carroll ditty: "The time has come," the Walrus said, "To talk of many things: Of shoes--and ships--and sealing-wax-- Of cabbages--and kings-- And why the sea is boiling hot-- And whether pigs have wings." Here is a delightful addition to the chess library, a collection of witty and lively articles on all aspects of the game. Bruce Hayden is a chess writer of repute, a skilled player and as a commentator he possesses in addition to considerable learning a quick sense of the strange and curious. His articles are not mere comments and exhaustive analysis of famous games, nor are they lessons on how to play chess. They are in the fullest sense of the word chess essay. Certainly they are often concerned with particular games or points of play but they are essentially the reflections and musings of a humerus intelligent informed journalist with many years of club and tournament experience. This is a book for all players and enthusiasts a book to dip into at idle moments an ideal companion for the chess player whether a type or a master.
