Mathematician, author, photographer, and artist, Lewis Carroll was best known as the creator of "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland", but he also produced an enormous amount of poetry. Over the course of almost 50 years (the earliest poems in this collection were written when he was only 13), he produced 150 poems, including nonsense verse, parodies, burlesques, acrostics, inscriptions, and more - many of them hilarious lampoons of some of the more sentimental and moralistic poems of the Victorian era. This carefully chosen collection contains 38 of Carroll's most appealing verses, including such unforgettable pieces as "The Walrus and the Carpenter," "The Mock Turtle's Song," and "Father William," plus such lesser-known gems as the tenderly romantic "My Fancy" - as well as "A Sea Dirge," "Brother and Sister," "Hiawatha's Photographing," "The Mad Gardener's Song," "What Tottles Meant," "Poeta Fit, non Nascitur," "The Little Man That Had a Little Gun," and many others. Filled with Carroll's special brand of imaginative whimsy and clever wordplay, this anthology will delight Carroll fans and all other readers who don't mind a little laughter with their lyrics.
