    One thought on “Nonsense”

    1. 'Nonsense' is probably the perfect title for this selection of Lear's poetry, it was, indeed, utter nonsense. It's not just the fact that his poems didn't make any sense and were imo super pointless, no, they were also quite badly written.Getting into this collection, I expected poems of Carroll's caliber. Huge mistake. Even though both men are similar in their approach, Carroll excels at writing whimsical and nonsensual poems, that acutally make you think. Just read his collection Frabjous Day [...]

    2. If it were not for Edward Lear we would never have had some of the most beloved rhymes, verse or limericks that have undoubtably stayed with us from childhood. This little sampler is highly recommended it's so full of pleasure and amusement that I think you will enjoy it beyond measure, in fact, I enjoyed it enough that just flicking though it made me run to my local Waterstone to pick up the complete edition.

    3. My final book of 2016 and quite apt that it is titled 'Nonsense'. Beautiful, rambling rhyme that delighted me as a child and still does. To see the year out, I will paraphraseI sat upon my Dobie,To watch the Evening Star,And all the Punkahs as they passed,Cried, 'My! How fair you are!'Around my bower, with quivering leaves,The tall Kamsamahs grew,And Kitmugars in wild festoonsHung down from Tchokis blue.Here's to more avid reading in 2017.
