Title: Lewis Carroll
Post by: Spaders55 on July 26, 2003, 06:07:37 pm

He is my favorite poet! I had to do a report on him for english class when i was a sophmore. Do you guys know who he is? He wrote Alice in Wonderland & Through the Looking Glass and what Alice found There
He also wrote this poem. It's called Jabberwocky, and it's one of my favorites.
'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.
"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!"

He took his vorpal sword in hand:
Long time the manxome foe he sought--
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
And stood awhile in thought.

And, as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! And through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.

"And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arm, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!"
He chortled in his joy.

'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe

that was my favourite childhood book, somehow i managed to get it then, but didnt when i re-read it. could be because i was on an alcohol-fuelled holiday with my friends in a house in the middle of nowhere in donegal...but giant caterpillars sitting on top of mushrooms smoking from a hookah is a rather strange image to comprehend! ???

he wasn't a rapist!! I had to do a report on him in high school, and that NEVER came up! People just thought he was weird b.c. he was friends with a little girl.

Wtf are you on about? No, he was NOT a rapist (without the 'e', thanks) and I don't know why you insist on saying that.. There is no - and there has never been - evidence that he ever abused *any* child.

Oh, so you live in Arlington, Texas, do you? ::) If that's the case..the lady is on some serious drugs because what you're saying is not true in the slightest.

probably crack. messes w/ your mind. thats probably why she told butterfly's mom that Lewis Carroll raped people. Lewis Carroll is a genius and not a rapist. He rules! :)

I did my poet/author speech on him in English this past year. We had to pick two poems of our person and i choose. Jabberwocky and The Walrus and the Carpenter! But my fave of his is MY Fairy. I'll go look for it and post it here for you all! lol He is one of the greatest authors/poets of all time, i believe.

Good Site on him.

'My Fairy'

I have a fairy by my side
Which says I must not sleep,
When once in pain I loudly cried
It said "You must not weep"
If, full of mirth, I smile and grin,
It says "You must not laugh"
When once I wished to drink some gin
It said "You must not quaff".

When once a meal I wished to taste
It said "You must not bite"
When to the wars I went in haste
It said "You must not fight".

"What may I do?" at length I cried,
Tired of the painful task.
The fairy quietly replied,
And said "You must not ask".


Carroll was not a rapist he just could relate to kids better than adults.

Title: Re:Lewis Carroll
Post by: kaleb on July 28, 2003, 06:14:15 pm

he definitley was a total genius, there are very few people who can write and be read and enjoyed by both children and adults. he's one of my favourites and i dont believe any of those accusations. Besides, there isnt any way of proving anything that happened in the 19th century-(or in the case of the grimm bros the 18th century) and if any of it *was* true (which it isnt) their work would have been banned back then and probably not even re-released.
so i wouldnt believe any of it for a second:)!

thanks for the link CrimsonRose!
