The Complete Verse and Other Nonsense Summary

The Complete Verse and Other Nonsense by Edward Lear

The first complete edition of Edward Lear's verse and other nonsense writings since 1947. This is also the first annotated edition, from the juvenilia to the great nonsense books. Lear's verses, limericks and fantastical line-drawings have enchanted children and adults alike through the generations. The Owl and the Pussycat, The Jumblies and The Dong with a Luminous Nose are as appealing today as they ever were and Lear is held in great affection by many who grew up with these childhood classics. Illustrated throughout, this handsome edition includes Lear's nonsense prose, both short stories and private letters. The definitive edition of Lear's wonderfully whimsical, timeless nonsense.

About Edward Lear

Edward Lear (1812-88) originally earned his living as a commercial artist. A skilled landscape painter and ornothological illustrator, he was art master to Queen Victoria for a time. His nonsense writing began as a sideline to amuse himself and his friend's children but soon made him a household name. Vivien Noakes is the leading authority on Lear, editor of his Selected Letters (1988) and the definitive biography, she also curated the Lear exhibition at the Royal Academy in 1985.
