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 nons Well, I have to admit that I'm confused about this author.
Isn't it odd that when you read his nonsense words you still get an idea of what they might mean? Check out the wikipedia page on the Jabberwocky. Here's my poem about Dr Suess. My opinion is yet to change: Dr Suess is a hack, making up words like Shirley and hords and shumarahack it's hard on a parent to read these silly rhymes, i'm tripping on my words half of the times. A fun thing to do, i'll talk nonsense To you. Here is a picture of a zimbobabaroo.
These made up things are scary to see, a poor little kid will look and then flee, "come here" we will say, "and read! Look here and see, a scary picture of a Zimbababeweed! A monster isn't scary, they are just very hairy. My bed is no safer, please face your fears and be a bit braver. Why did I read Dr Suess to you?! Next time I'll read "my cow that says 'moo.
Mar 12, Julie rated it it was amazing. My daughter can recite this nonsense poem by heart. Oct 26, Katrina rated it liked it. A little bit disappointed to be honest I 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 more than the other ones. I thought they would be more 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 A little bit disappointed to be honest Maybe I just prefer sad romantic poetry; if you do then I am not sure this is the poetry for you. Jul 14, G.
Neff rated it really liked it. 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 of Jabberwocky 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 more once I get into them. 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.
The latter starts like this: A Sea Dirge There 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 most Is a thing they call the Sea. Pour some salt water over the floor - Ugly I'm I enjoyed reading this book of poems. Nov 26, Leah Mullenaux rated it liked it. I read only one of these poems, Jabberwocky, illustrated by Joel Stewart. It simply took Lewis Carroll's original nonsense poem and illustrated it.clinvoketen.tk
Jabberwocky and Other Nonsense: Collected Poems (Penguin Clothbound Classics)
It made a lot more 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 t I read only one of these poems, Jabberwocky, illustrated by Joel Stewart. I could be wrong because I didn't analyze it too much, but I don't feel like it teaches a lesson or anything. I think it was just a nonsense adventure story about a boy slaying a scary monster.
I didn't feel any different after I read it, and I didn't like that.

Dec 28, Relyn rated it liked it Recommends it for: anyone who likes odd. Shelves: reread , lawsonland , poetry. 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. 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 us I love the poem Jabberwock , but some of Carroll's other poetry just doesn't do it for me. One year when I introduced the poem to my fourth graders, I taught them about nonsense words as usual. It was wonderful because they all began to use "Caloo Calay!
I do love kids! Apr 28, Katrina rated it really liked it Shelves: children-s-literature. 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 imagin This is a book of nonsense poetry that appeals to all ages, but specifically to young children.
Just like "Wonderland", the poem and illustrations throw you into an inverted world where nothing is as it seems and allow your imagination to run wild.
I have always enjoyed this poem throughout my childhood and adult life, just like with most of Carroll's work. Jan 15, Sarah Crawford rated it really liked it. 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 This is a booklet of poems by Lewis Carroll. 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 numbers of people.
I think most of his poetry is pretty good. Feb 13, C. Hollis Crossman rated it it was amazing. Without nonsense, the world would be meaningless. Jabberwocky , by this standard, is one of the most important poems of all time. The Alice books are but one example of his wide ranging authorship. The Hunting of the Snark , a classic nonsense epic and Euclid and His Modern Rivals , a rare example of humorous work concerning mathematics, still entice and intrigue today's students.
Sylvie and Bruno , published toward the end of his life contains startling ideas including an description of weightlessness. More information about this seller Contact this seller 8. Language: English.
