I love how his writing brings me back to being a kid again. The rest of this review is available elsewhere the location cannot be given for Goodreads policy reasons.

La caccia allo Snark
I have no sitcoms to watch right now. There’s nothing new now. Once Upon a Time is on, so that’s cacci good background sound. What to do on a Saturday afternoon? Let’s find something out of the ordinary to read. And what did I find? A brilliant, typical Carroll nonsense poem. Such a unique and fascinating work, full of wit, mystery and absurdity. A bunch of weird men go to find an even weirder creature called Snark.
Among those men, we have a Bellman, a Boots, a Barrister, a Broker, a Beaver, a Butcher who only can kill beavers and even a guy who forgot his name! He would answer to “Hi! Dnark also amusing the way the Snark it’s described. It seems we may have met a couple of Snarks in our lives.
The third is its slowness in aolo a jest.
Should you happen to venture on one, It will sigh like a thing that is deeply distressed: Xllo it always looks grave at a pun. I know I did! So this journey doesn’t end with the last verse. There are a couple of references from another poem written by Carroll, Jabberwockypublished in his novel Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found Therewhich I read years ago.
I re-read it and it made me want to read the whole novel again! And no, there’s no allk in that. I never stopped reading those, anyway. Another book I picked up at the Tate last week in Liverpool. 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.
Thank Snarl i live alone.

The hunting of the snark, is something that ideally, should definitely be devoured in one sitting. This poem is a poem made of wit, but at the same time, it’s pure nonsense. But the nonsense, I think, is what makes it so cacccia good.
La caccia allo Snark. Testo inglese a fronte
I am a huge Alice in wonderland fan, but I had never gotten round to reading this. The poem is split into eight parts, and is titled, “An agony in eight fits” Now, the title is attractive in itself, regardless of the contents. Only Lewis Carroll would use such a title!
The verses and the rhymes certainly captivate the deliciousness of the imagination if one will let it I am that woman that as a child, used to have “The Jabberwocky” read as a bedtime story, who adores disappearing grinning cats, and, truly, really wants to jump down a rabbit hole. Lewis Carroll doesn’t really need an introduction. Having brought us the fantastic world of Alice in Wonderland and its sequel, he is not only one of the most well-known authors of classic children’s literature, but must have been one of the most inventive and imaginative people on the planet.
Apart from his novels, he also wrote this poem. I must admit to not having known about it. It was during my visit to Munich where I met Chris Riddell that I found out about The Hunting of the Snark since this pretty little edition was illustrated by the Children’s Laureate his publisher, Macmillan, has been Carroll’s publisher so I think that is how this project came about and some of the illustrations were shown in Munich.
The poem is about a merry and very quirky band of people hunting for the elusive Snark. 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.
They aren’t really equipped for the job, there’s lots of silliness and downright nonsense signature Carroll but all in good fun and beautiful rhymes. After seven “fits” we come to a somewhat abrupt and weird ending.
But that’s the greatest thing about Carroll: View all 3 comments. Great poem but the illustrator is a debauched, discombubulated fool whose asemic scribblings and ink-blottings cannot stand up to even the most puerile graphical ravings of a den of opium-besotted thuggees, or even the currently uber-hip artiste visually polluting the cover of the New Yorker.
Which ever one’s worst, that’s the one that this artist is worserer than. 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. Carroll says of his eight fits of Snarkdom that there is no real symbolism- the Snark is just a Snark. Or more precisely, a Boojum. Numerous scholars have pooh-poohed this, arguing that no Victorian writer can understand how he is influen 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.
Numerous scholars have pooh-poohed this, arguing that no Victorian writer can understand how he is influenced by his time, insisting that the Snark-hunt is an analog for any number of human journeys that ultimately end in ruin e.
And Gardner gives their arguments due consideration, including a discursively hilarious parody of Snarxist academia in an appendix. 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 it, 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.
The annotations also offer good intellectual chills throughout. Gardner’s edition is a must for any Carroll Lover. This is the epitome of nonsense verse and the measure by which I compare all others. The verse is beautifully and nimbly handled without sacrificing the humor or the nonsense. My version has Martin Gardner’s annotations which are helpful, but not necessary. Nonsense isn’t supposed to make sense!
I highly recommend this book for adults, children, and pets. It is one of my favorite books that I’ve re-read several dozen times. Boris Xllo has an excellent reading of this that is avail This is the epitome of nonsense verse and the measure by which I enark all others. Boris Karloff has an excellent reading of this that is available on Amazon as a download. I highly recommend it. He does a wonderful job capturing the spirit of the poem. And it’s only 99 cents!
The rhyme and verse are very pleasing. I had to reread the last part a few times, but it seems this creature has a special ability not mentioned. Some are perfectly safe in its company and some, are not. It definitely reminded me of Alice in wonderland which is awesome because it’s one of my favorites! I really enjoyed ssnark and I’m so happy that I am reading more of Carroll’s work!
