|aOne of the best-known lines in literature--"Twas brillig, and the slithy toves / Did gyre and gimble in the wabe"--comes from Lewis Carroll's poetry, which he wrote throughout his life to amuse himself and to give pleasure to his friends and family. This marvelous collection celebrates the full range of his verse--his nonsense, parodies, burlesques, and more--and includes such enduringly wonderful pieces as "The Walrus and the Carpenter," "The Mock Turtle's Song," and "Father William" alongside the brilliantly playful "Jabberwocky."
Collects together Carroll’s poetry, including nonsense verse, parodies, burlesques, and more. This edition also includes notes, a chronology and an introduction that discusses Carroll’s love of puzzles and wordplay.
