I am not overly familiar with Lewis Carroll’s work since I never liked Alice in Wonderland too much (the movies, never read the books). His poetry was completely new to me, but after I recently read Edward Lear’s nonsense poetry (which was being compared as similar to Lewis Carroll) I was not looking forward to reading O Frabjous Day!. But, every week a Little Black Classics means reading one every week, so here we are.
My expectations were really low for this one, but I found it made at least way more sense than the Lear poems. Some of them still didn’t resonance with me at all. But the hunting of the Snark was kind of nice, even though the rhyming was very nursery rhyme-y.
