More of the Tove Jansson nostalgic illustrations and a beautiful edition which sat happily in my hands last night as I read it aloud in bed. He would answer to “Hi! Nonsense isn’t supposed to make sense! This so intrigued me that I returned for a reread the same day. But that’s the greatest thing about Carroll: A bunch of weird men go to find an even weirder creature called Snark. However, this is a fun read, and as I’m turning it over I find the ending terrifying, just somehow anticlimactic.

I am a huge Alice in wonderland fan, but I had never gotten round to reading this. I must admit to not having known about it. Five stars for both content, Lewis Carroll’s sublimely weird nonsense epic about an ill-fated hunting mission by a group of bizarre characters, and edition, which contains Martin Gardner’s playfully brilliant introduction, extensive annotations, and appendices.

La caccia allo Snark by Lewis Carroll

In which a Hemulen and other residents of Moominvalley venture in quest of a Snark — but only if you read the edition with Tove Jansson’s illustrations. Gardner adds more text in the notations than the poem itself contains.

La caccia allo Snark. Testo inglese a fronte

One of the greatest works of nonsense ever. And snarrk always looks grave at a pun. Refresh and try again. Oxford scholar, Church of England Deacon, University Lecturer in Mathematics and Logic, academic author of learned theses, gifted pioneer of portrait photography, colourful writer of imaginative genius and yet a shy and pedantic man, Lewis Carroll stands pre-eminent in the pantheon of inventive literary geniuses.

Return to Book Page. Among those men, we have a Bellman, a Boots, a Barrister, a Broker, a Beaver, ls Butcher who only can kill beavers and even a guy who forgot his name! Not this particular edition which is cooler than the first one I read. Just did a dramatic reading of this for my cat. Oxfo The Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, better known by the pen name Lewis Carroll, was an English author, mathematician, logician, Anglican clergyman and photographer.

I absolutely adore this poem, and when this edition caught my eye on the shelf while doing some tidying I felt it was time for another reading.

I haven’t read a single damn thing inso I figured oa lighthearted and simple tale was the right thing to get into to. It is undoubtedly a great tragedy: They sought it with thimbles, they sought it with care; They persued it with forks and hope; They threatened its life with a railway-share; They charmed it with smiles and soap.


It’s also amusing the way the Snark it’s described.

The Hunting of the Snark. I have no sitcoms to watch right now. Carroll says of his eight fits of Snarkdom that there is no real symbolism- the Snark is just a Snark. Now open your mouth and speak Only Lewis Carroll would use such a title! This is the epitome of nonsense verse and the measure by which I compare all others.

But my favorite theory has to be Gardner’s, that the Snark, to contemporary readers, most closely represents existential nonbeing, not so much because I agree with l, but because it perfectly captures the zeitgeist ofwhen the world was one thumb on a button away from nuclear annihilation, or softly and suddenly vanishing away, not to be met with again.
