About this Item

24 pages. Dimensions: 9.7in. x 7.4in. x 0.1in.One of the most unusual poems ever written, The Hunting of the Snark is the uncontested masterpiece of nonsense verse. The verbal richness and flexibility of the English language are exploited to the utmost in this riotously funny, formally perfect, and delightfully absurd narrative poem about a strange assortment of characters out to hunt a fearsome creature known, among other things, for its habit of getting up so late that it breakfasts af five-oclock tea and dines on the following day. Well never know exactly what was going through Carrolls mind when he created this epic journey-especially since the author himself claimed that the poem was devoid of any meaning-but the many efforts to explain it away are often ingenious and entertaining. No review can do justice to a work as original and extraordinary as this one, written more than a century ago to entertain Victorian children, but read now mostly by grownups. This is the very pinnacle of British humor, soaring far above even Monty Pythons most inspired moments. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.
