And Gardner gives their alo due consideration, including a discursively hilarious parody of Snarxist academia in an appendix. His most famous writings are Alice’s Snar in Wonderland and its sequel Through the Looking-Glass as well as the poems “The Hunting of the Snark” and “Jabberwocky”, all considered to be within the genre of literary nonsense. Numerous scholars have pooh-poohed this, arguing that no Victorian writer can understand how he is influenced by his time, insisting that the Snark-hunt is an analog for any number of human journeys that ultimately end in ruin e.

The Hunting of the Snark. It is one of my favorite books that I’ve re-read several dozen times. The characters are sensibly nonsensical in Alice-Wonderland vein.

The Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, better known by the pen name Lewis Carroll, was an English author, mathematician, logician, Anglican clergyman and photographer. Among those men, we have a Bellman, a Boots, a Barrister, a Broker, a Beaver, a Butcher who only can kill beavers and even a guy who forgot his name!

The wonderful tumble of Carroll’s rythmic pulsing verse is such fun to burble out and some of the verses made me smile out loud ‘He thought of his childhood, left far far behind- That blissful and innocent state- The sound so exactly recalled to his mind A pencil that squeaks o Another book I picked up at the Tate last week in Cacccia.

To the poetry enthusiast, I have just three words: He would answer to “Hi! I re-read it and it made me want to read the whole novel again!

A Snark is not a Jabberwock, much as we might wish otherwise. They aren’t really equipped for the job, there’s lots of silliness and downright nonsense signature Carroll but all in good fun and beautiful rhymes. However, I found TitanicTerminator 3reality shows and other stuff, so, those aren’t real options for me. The original Victorian illustrations lend to the creepiness pretty well, they’re terrific.

Much of this poem is absence, but where The Jabberwocky fills absence with vague nonsense that somehow expands to suggest a world of dread, the story of the snark simply isn’t, until it is, and that was not enough to carry the thing for me. There are a couple of references from another poem written by Carroll, Jabberwockypublished in his novel Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found Therewhich I read years ago. I c9ollected various Carroll editions, so actually, I don’t know which one I fell in love with first.

Enark is hilario The best, and certainly the only, nonsense epic poem I’ve caccoa read. Great poem but the illustrator is a debauched, discombubulated fool whose asemic scribblings and ink-blottings cannot stand up to even the most puerile graphical ravings of a den of opium-besotted thuggees, or even the currently uber-hip artiste visually polluting the cover of the New Yorker.


He had bought a large map representing the sea, Without the least vestige of land; And the crew were much pleased when they found it to be A map they could all understand.

However, this is a fun read, and as I’m turning it over I find the ending terrifying, just somehow anticlimactic. And no, there’s no shame in that. This is the epitome of nonsense verse and the measure by which I compare all others. Or more precisely, a Boojum. But he did add to the overall cwccia.

Return to Book Page. Oxford scholar, Church of England Deacon, University Lecturer in Mathematics and Logic, academic author of learned theses, gifted pioneer of portrait photography, colourful writer of imaginative genius and yet a shy and pedantic man, Lewis Carroll stands pre-eminent in the pantheon of inventive literary geniuses.

Probably my favorite poem to date. Kindle Editionpages. The Hunting of the Snark 5 38 Feb 25, Carroll says of his eight fits of Snarkdom that there is no real symbolism- the Snark is just a Snark.

Had nog nooit eerder een boek gelezen alleen maar omdat ik 1 cavcia de afbeeldingen die erin stond zo mooi vond, maar het was de moeite meer dan waard. Found this at Lit. Not this particular edition which is cooler than the first one I read. Any idea what they are worth and who I could sell them to? See 1 question about La caccia allo Snark….

But my favorite theory has to be Gardner’s, that the Snark, to contemporary readers, snarkk closely represents existential nonbeing, not so much because I agree with it, but because it perfectly captures the zeitgeist ofwhen the world was one thumb on a button away from nuclear annihilation, or softly and suddenly vanishing away, not to be met cacia again.
