Jabberwocky and Other Poems

Master of gibberish Lewis Carroll brings his inventive style of writing to life once more in the collection "Jabberwocky and Other Poems." Though most famous for his creation of Wonderland and Alice's fall into the uncanny world of the nonsensical, Carroll used his wordsmithing ability to form inventive rhymes and lexicons in this collection. Words like "bandersnatch," "chortled," "tulgey," and even "Jabberwocky" are inventions of Carroll's mind. Many critics have searched for meanings in the poem, but it is believed that Carroll used the nonsensical as a satire of high-poetry; he believed that too many writers took themselves seriously, so he wrote "Jabberwocky" as a way to confuse writers and critics alike. Also compiled in "Jabberwocky and Other Poems" are verses from his novels "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking Glass." In both stories, Alice found strange verses laying around Wonderland; this text brings them all together comprehensively for the reader's pleasure. Audiences have fallen in love with Carroll's unorthodox writing style, although there is little to say in terms of the poems' plots. Yet the colorful and amusing nature of Carroll's works draws readers into the author and mathematician's mind, which is a stimulating and vibrant place to be. "Jabberwocky and Other Poems" is enjoyed by readers of all ages, allowing the works to be relished by the entire family.
