  1. The time has come, the Walrus said, To talk of many things Of shoes and ships and sealing wax Of cabbages and kings And why the sea is boiling hot And whether pigs have wings A memorable verse from an iconic poem, The Walrus and the Carpenter , one of Carroll s most revered works alongside the titular Jabberwocky It tells the story of a cunning pair the poetic Walrus and his complementary accomplice the Carpenter and their encounter with a rather unfortunate bunch of oysters who eventually becom [...]

  2. This is one of my favourite poems ever just because of the fact this poem throws no punches and actually admits to being a nonsense poem Because honestly, the amount of pretentious waffle I had to read in school and then make a profound interpretation from, just did my head in, and then this bad boy came along, and all the pretentious kids in the class were clueless because they couldn t make sense of this poem It was so fucking funny and so brilliant.

  3. Jabberwocky is a nonsense poem by Lewis Carroll really, it s nonsense Carroll created this poem, about the killing of a creature named the Jabberwock, using nonsense words and a rhyming pattern of ABAB CDCD EFEF, and so on This poem was included in Carroll s Through the Looking Glass novel Interestingly enough, the character Alice notes that It seems very pretty, she said when she had finished it, but it s rather hard to understand You see she didn t like to confess, even to herself, that she co [...]

  4. We are building little homes on the sandsAnd time does indeed flit away, burbling and chortling Cheshire Charles of Carroll created such whimsical poetry, it was frabjous to read his collected poems, albeit usually in a public space with curious onlookers trying to determine exactly what was in my book That s because I had the gorgeous clothbound edition with the knockout dragonesque design by Coralie Bickford Smith All in the golden afternoonFull leisurely we glideThere is so much to love and m [...]

  5. im not huge on poetry normally it goes way over my head and most of the poems did just that however I read jabberwocky years ago and loved it and I still do there was lime 2 3 other poems I kinda liked but over all meh.

  6. This is one of the greatest nonsense poems ever written, yet Lewis Carroll is able to make himself understood, even when using words of his own devising.

  7. Could not find the Jabberwocky I read It was by Lewis Carrol and illustrated by Joel Stewart At any rate, I see no redeeming value to this poem at all Enough said.

  8. A fascinating collection of rhyming poetry written by Lewis Carroll, one of the best known experimenters when it comes to the poetic form.

  9. JABBERWOCKYLewis Carroll from Through the Looking Glassand What Alice Found There, 1872 Twas brillig, and the slithy tovesDid gyre and gimble in the wabe All mimsy were the borogoves,And the mome raths outgrabe Beware the Jabberwock, my son The jaws that bite, the claws that catch Beware the Jubjub bird, and shunThe frumious Bandersnatch He took his vorpal sword in hand Long time the manxome foe he sought So rested he by the Tumtum tree,And stood awhile in thought.And, as in uffish thought he st [...]

  10. Well, I have to admit that I m confused about this author He is like Dr Suess, making up words I can t read and will never know what they mean I don t like Dr Suess and I don t like Carroll I wrote a poem about it actually But here s the deal, I like the Jabberwocky and some of the nonsense poems in this book When Carroll was asked to help enlighten people on the meanings of some of his made up words his grasp of language made me rethink my distaste Isn t it odd that when you read his nonsense w [...]

  11. Carroll, Lewis, and Christopher Myers Jabberwocky New York Jump at the Sun Hyperion for Children, 2007 Print Ages 8 10 Jabberwocky is a very confusing, but very depicted poem book This book is a book about a boy who was told about this Jabberwocky and his father warns him that this creature animal is very dangerous The boy decides that this didn t matter anyways, so he goes out into the forest to try to catch kill this creature At the end the boy does end up killing the Jabberwocky and he comes [...]

  12. I enjoyed reading this book of poems Can t say I liked all of them but some I liked very much Many of them are funny in an absurd way If you want to see examples then I d recommend poems like The Walrus and the Carpenter and A Sea Dirge The latter starts like this A Sea DirgeThere are certain things as, a spider, a ghost,The income tax, gout, an umbrella for three That I hate, but the thing that I hate the mostIs a thing they call the Sea Pour some salt water over the floor Ugly I m sure you ll [...]

  13. This is a book of nonsense poetry that appeals to all ages, but specifically to young children Jabberwocky itself was presented in Alice s Adventures in Wonderland and the wording of the poem is of Lewis Carroll s own invention The lyricism is playful and the content entertaining The illustrations are whimsical and mirror those seen in Carroll s other works Just like Wonderland , the poem and illustrations throw you into an inverted world where nothing is as it seems and allow your imagination t [...]

  14. I love the poem Jabberwock, but some of Carroll s other poetry just doesn t do it for me This time I was sharing the book with Sloane and my class I adore being the first to read the poem to children They TOTALLY get the poem and follow the story far, far better than most adults I think it s because they are still so very involved in their own imaginary lives It s a poem that is always a hit One year when I introduced the poem to my fourth graders, I taught them about nonsense words as usual It [...]

  15. This collection caught me by surprise I was ready for silliness and laughter, but what I got was much serious The nonsense is such a small amount of his work in this collection the rest has quite a melancholic tone atmosphere, with quite a lot of religous references as well, which isn t a criticism, it just surprised me I hoped I was going to love Carroll s work, but I didn t feel anything The only poem that really captured me was Three Sunsets , which is a sad love poem That was beautiful I th [...]

  16. I read only one of these poems, Jabberwocky, illustrated by Joel Stewart It simply took Lewis Carroll s original nonsense poem and illustrated it It made a lot sense reading it with the pictures acting it out, because most of the time, I had no idea what Carroll was saying with those crazy made up words It was a simple book, not much to it I didn t enjoy it too much because I didn t learn anything from it I could be wrong because I didn t analyze it too much, but I don t feel like it teaches a [...]

  17. When I first read Jabberwocky back in school, I was enthralled Here was a fun, nonsense poem that made me smile So I got a copy ofJabberwocky and Other Poems by Lewis Carroll and read the entire book okay, so it s a short book in one day.And I found that the Jabberwocky still makes me smile As well as some of the other poems in the book I have some other books by Lewis Carroll on my shelves to read I m certain I ll be smiling once I get into them.

  18. A little bit disappointed to be honestI loved the poems in Alice s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, because I thought they were thought provoking, a little melancholy, meaningful in obscure ways I enjoyed these poems than the other ones I thought they would be meaningful, I just found them a bit dull and factual, with no other meaning I m not good at analysing poems so I probably missed the point of a lot of them Maybe I just prefer sad romantic poetry if you do then I a [...]

  19. This is a booklet of poems by Lewis Carroll It s basically divided into pre Alice poems, poems from both Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass, and other poetry that he wrote Some of the poetry is very similar in style to that in Alice, very unusual in wording and still very interesting.In a poem entitled Rules and Regulations, he has a very interesting bit of advice for people and that is and never stammer, yet he had a definite stammer, especially when around very small numbe [...]

  20. Have read most of these before, except I think some of the early ones and some of the later ones Jabberwocky will always be my favourite but there are plenty of others that I enjoyed most of my favourites are from the Alice stories thanks in part to the Disney film.I enjoyed the acrostic poems I remember writing those at school.The riddle poems were good as well though I had no hopes of solving most of them.The notes at the end were useful to help understand the poems and solve the riddles.

  21. Without nonsense, the world would be meaningless Jabberwocky, by this standard, is one of the most important poems of all time.Carroll demonstrates the true nature of poetry here its power to communicate effectively through chaos and order juxtaposed, its inventiveness, its utter and utterly pure celebration of play and carelessness.His other poems are pretty good, too Jabberwocky is the best, and the best reason to read Through the Looking Glass I ve read a lot of poetry, and I can honestly say [...]

  22. I love Carroll s writing.The poems in this book range from whimsical pieces from the Alice stories to much profound pieces Some of these are much easily read aloud How Doth is still one of my favorite poems I loved it when I watched Disney s Alice in Wonderland growing up and each time I ve read it.If you want something full of imagination and enjoy poetry, I recommend this especially if you like some of Carroll s other stuff.

  23. a very decent read a little bit confusing but such is the way of mister Carroll s writing at tumes I think that is part of what makes his writings so appealing to me It s an enigma with some new rabbit trail of thought to follow as new ideas and pictures come from the pictures painted in his bookse jabberwocky is a great book with many themes of heroism and valor that doesnt come up in modern poetry.

  24. I basically got this book so I could have The Walrus and the Carpenter on print, cause I love reading it again and again All the poems he wrote for Through the Looking Glass are amazing to read out loud, but his other work, although sometimes fun to read, is not really as good as I wanted it to be.
