Read full description of the books:I have never really been a fan of poetry. This almost seems strange to me, as I have been a huge enthusiast of rap music (which is often called “rhythm and poetry”) and of writing poetry. Regardless, reading poetry has always failed to interest me, whether it be because of its vague nature or its strange format. Yet, reading Lewis Carroll's compilation of poems in the “Poetry for Young People” collection was nothing like my original experiences with poetry.
You may have heard of Lewis Carroll from his more-famous works like Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Jabberwocky. These works epitomize the style and themes used in Lewis Carroll's writing-- fun, nonsensical, and incredibly creative. It is so enjoyable to read Lewis Carroll’s poems because they are so imaginative. Often, though, there are special themes hidden under these seemingly silly poems. If I had not read this “Poetry for Young People” collection of Lewis Carroll’s poems, I would likely never have realized these themes.
In this book, a brief synopsis of the poem is given to provide you with a feel for what the poem is about. This is extremely helpful when you are reading the book, because it helps you understand things about author’s intent and even about the author himself. If I had just read Lewis Carroll’s poems without these snippets, I would have written him off as just an immature writer. But like figures in rap, Lewis Carroll writes many “disses” and seems to have “beef” with other authors of media. This knowledge, combined with very detailed drawings, brings a whole new way to read and understand poetry. I strongly recommend reading both works of Lewis Carroll and books that are in the “Poetry for Young People” series. I most strongly recommend that you read Lewis Carroll’s installment in the “Poetry for Young People” series.
Read information about the authorThe Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, better known by the pen name Lewis Carroll, was an English author, mathematician, logician, Anglican clergyman and photographer.
His most famous writings are Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel Through the Looking-Glass as well as the poems "The Hunting of the Snark" and "Jabberwocky", all considered to be within the genre of literary nonsense.
Oxford scholar, Church of England Deacon, University Lecturer in Mathematics and Logic, academic author of learned theses, gifted pioneer of portrait photography, colourful writer of imaginative genius and yet a shy and pedantic man, Lewis Carroll stands pre-eminent in the pantheon of inventive literary geniuses.
He also has works published under his real name.
