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!
