The collected poems of Lewis Carroll, newly edited and published in a beautiful clothbound edition designed by Coralie Bickford-Smith
 
“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 marvelous range of Carroll’s poetry, including nonsense verse, parodies, burlesques, and more. This beautifully designed clothbound edition is edited with a new introduction by Gillian Beer and includes, alongside the title piece, such enduringly wonderful pieces as “The Walrus and the Carpenter,” “The Mock Turtle’s Song,” “Father William” and many more.



“Made me nearly fall off a chair laughing…Gillian Beer’s lovingly, meticulously edited collection – the first ever – of Lewis Carroll’s ‘uproariously dissident’ verse, leaves me seriously happy every time I open it.”
Ali Smith, Times Literary Supplement Books of the Year

 “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
-- Michael Caines, Times Literary Supplement

This is an elegant volume, likely to delight enthusiasts, while introducing Lewis Carroll's poetry to a younger readership. The poems are set out chronologically following a generous, thoughtful introduction from the esteemed Cambridge critic Gillian Beer... Beer has done an admirable job, and this edition will appeal to readers of all ages
