'Beware the Jabberwock, my son! The jaws that bite, the claws that catch! Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun The frumious Bandersnatch!' Lewis Carroll wrote verse throughout his life, for fun and to give pleasure to his friends and family. This is the first collected and annotated edition of his poems, bringing to light a fresh array of his verses including childhood rhymes, favourites from the Alice books, parodies, satires, riddles, nonsense and later works such as Sylvie and Bruno. Imbued with high spirits, wit and sometimes sadness, these verses show Carroll's imagination at its most subversive. Edited with notes by Gillian Beer '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.'
