‘Twas brillig, and the slithy toves / Did gyre and gimble in the wabe…’ wrote Lewis Carroll, author of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, in his wonderfully playful poem of nonsense verse, ‘Jabberwocky’. This beautiful, clothbound new edition collects together the marvellous range of Carroll’s poetry, including nonsense verse, parodies, burlesques, and more. Alongside the title piece are such enduringly wonderful pieces as ‘The Walrus and the Carpenter’, ‘The Mock Turtle’s Song’, ‘Father William’ and many more.

Jabberwocky and Other Nonsense

Written by: Lewis Carroll, Illustrated by: Coralie Bickford-Smith, Introduction by: Gillian Beer, Edited by: Gillian Beer


“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.”
