Description
"It's a Snark!"... for whatever else can it be? Published on April Fools' Day in 1876, Lewis Carroll's The Hunting of the Snark remains one of the most amusing and bizarre works of modern verse, for adults as much as for young readers. It is "Jabberwocky" writ large, notes Adam Gopnik in his introduction—a "nonsense" poem expanded to epic length, in eight "fits," as Carroll calls his stanzas. Published 11 years after Alice in Wonderland, it invites readers along on a fictitious hunt to determine who—or what—the Snark actually is. In this beautiful two-color volume Martin Gardner uncovers some of the most confounding literary, linguistic, and mathematical references embedded in any of Carroll's works, while Henry Holiday's distinctive illustrations capture the frabjous spirit of the poem, and include a suppressed drawing of the infamous Boojum.

"Having prepared the definitive edition of The Annotated Alice, prolific polymath Gardner has now produced the perfect companion volume, the definitive edition of Carroll's long nonsense poem, The Hunting of the Snark: An Agony in Eight Fits.... Besides the original Henry Holiday illustrations, this attractive package includes an introduction by Adam Gopnik, a new preface by Gardner, an extensive bibliography and an appendix of Snark sites on the Web. Even Gardner fans who own the original Annotated Snark (1962) will want this one."—Publishers Weekly
