Book Description

Oct. 30 2012 0141195940 978-0141195940
'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves / Did gyre and gimble in the wabe...' wrote Lewis Carroll, author of "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking Glass", in his wonderfully playful poem of nonsense verse, "Jabberwocky". This beautiful, clothbound new edition collects together the marvellous range of Carroll's poetry, including nonsense verse, parodies, burlesques, and more. Alongside the title piece are such enduringly wonderful pieces as "The Walrus and the Carpenter", "The Mock Turtle's Song", "Father William" and many more.

About the Author

Lewis Carroll was the pen-name of the Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. Born in 1832, he was educated at Rugby School and Christ Church, Oxford, where he was appointed lecturer in mathematics in 1855, and where he spent the rest of his life. In 1861 he took deacon's orders, but shyness and a stammer prevented him from seeking the priesthood. His most famous works, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865) and Through the Looking-Glass (1872), were originally written for Alice Liddell, the daughter of the Dean of his college. Charles Dodgson died of bronchitis in 1898. Gillian Beer is King Edward VII Professor Emeritus of English at the University of Cambridge and past President of Clare Hall College. She is a Fellow of the British Academy and of the Royal Society of Literature. Among her works are Darwin's Plots (1983; third edition, 2009), George Eliot (1986), Arguing with the Past: Essays in Narrative from Woolf to Sidney (1989), Open Fields: Science in Cultural Encounter (1996) and Virginia Woolf: The Common Ground (1996).

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Set of Books Dec 15 2012
By GChicago (International Man of Intrigue) - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I buy 3 or 4 of these Penguin Hardback with the covers wonderfully done by Coralie Bickford-Smith. The books are very good quality and the prices are very reasonable. The cover art is beautiful, simple and look great on your bookshelves as you collect more and more of these treasures. Each book has a silk place holder that matches the cover and colors. I look forward to collecting the entire set but they keep adding them and I don't buy them fast enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Books that are also art. Jan. 20 2013
By Joyce Clements Goldman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have to admit, these books first attracted my attention, due to the beautifully designed covers. They are so eye catching on a bookshelf, and I believe I have every one that's available. As soon as a new one comes out, I'm on Amazon to order it. This is the newest addition to my collection. I am even "reading" them.
