The Hunting of the Snark: An Agony in Eight Fitsby Lewis Carroll
Synopses & Reviews
A beautifully re-illustrated edition of Lewis Carroll's unforgetabe story: "the impossible voyage of an improbable crew to find an inconeivable creature."
The master of nonsense, Lewis Carroll, re-illustrated in a fabulous new edition. A lovely gift book, and a delight to share, and read aloud.
About the Author
LEWIS CARROLL, creator of the landmark children's book Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, was a pseudonym for Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, an Oxford don who was educated at Christ Church College in Oxford,England, where he lectured in mathematics. In addition to his keen interest in photography and inventing games and puzzles, he wrote fantastical tales and humorous verse, including Phantasmagoria and Other Poems, Through the Looking-Glass, the sequel to the adventures of Alice, and The Hunting of the Snark. Born in 1832, Dodgson died in 1898 of influenza.
