Tietoja tekijästä

Edward Lear was born in Holloway, England, to Jeremiah (a stockbroker) and Ann Lear, tutored at home by his sister, and briefly attended the Royal Academy schools. Both an author and an illustrator, he earned his living as an artist from the age of 15, mainly by doing landscapes. What he is näytä lisää remembered for is his nonsense books, especially his popularization of the limerick. Along with Lewis Carroll, he is considered to be the founder of nonsense poetry. In addition to his limericks, he created longer nonsense poems. The best---and best known---is The Jumblies, in which the title characters go to sea in a sieve; it is a brilliant, profound, silly, and sad expression of the need to leave the security of the known world and experience the wonder and danger of the unknown. His other most notable work is The Owl and the Pussy Cat, a less complex poem whose title characters also go to sea. Lear produced humorous alphabets and botany books as well. His wordplay, involving puns, neologisms, portmanteau words, and anticlimax, retains its vitality today and has influenced such contemporary writers of children's nonsense verse as Shel Silverstein, Ogden Nash, and Laura Richards (Bowker Author Biography) näytä vähemmän

Edward Lear almost never fails to put a smile on my face. Though, his recipes are rather vicious...

"When the paste is perfectly dry, but not before, proceed to beat the Pig violently, with the handle of a large broom. If he squeals, beat him again." - Quote from TO MAKE GOSKY PATTIES

A delightful book of nonsensical poems. Many will probably know of The Owl and the Pussy Cat, given that the poem was given beautiful illustrations by Jan Brett (although the illustrations in this book are lovely as well. The poems in the book have a wonderful singsong quality to them that makes them fun to read and I think would delight kids. The only issue is that the book does show its age some with depictions of POC. It's only one poem, but the depiction was a bit insensitive for my taste. Overall, most of the poems are fun to read and have a sense of adventure to them. An additional bonus is that you can read it for free on Project Gutenburg!… (lisätietoja)

Many of the Limericks are fun, notably those featuring Birds,

but this is not a book for kids or sensitive adults = too much violence, Killing, death, and animal cruelty.
