Guest Blog: Lewis Carroll and His Sisters


  1. The category “Interesting Literature” is just the place for a Snark! Lewis Carroll’s, Henry Holiday’s and Joseph Swain’s composed “The Hunting of the Snark” as a challenging textorial and pictorial conundrum. Rather than nonsense literature, Henry Holiday classified it as a “tragedy”. During writing the long poem, Lewis Carroll may have become afraid of it himself and therefore added a “Easter Greeting” to the 1st edition.
