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.


“This is an elegant volume, likely to delight enthusiasts, while introducing Lewis Carrol’s poetry to a younger readership. The poems are set out chronologically following a generous, thoughtful introduction from the esteemed Cambridge critic Gillian Beer. . . . The meticulous notes at the end of the book . . . are worth the price of the book on their own.”
