Jabberwocky And Other Nonsense: Collected Poems (Penguin Classics Hardcover)

The first collected and annotated edition of Carroll’s brilliant, witty poems, edited by Gillian Beer.

‘Twas brillig, and the slithy toves / Did gyre and gimble in the wabe…’ wrote Lewis Carroll in his wonderfully playful poem of nonsense verse, ‘Jabberwocky’. This 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.

This edition also includes notes, a chronology and an introduction by Gillian Beer that discusses Carroll’s love of puzzles and wordplay and the relationship of his poetry with the Alice books

‘Opening at random Gillian Beer’s new edition of Lewis Carroll’s poems, Jabberwocky and Other Nonsense, guarantees a pleasurable experience – not all of it nonsensical’ – Times Literary Supplement

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).
