 CARROLL, LEWIS; HOLIDAY, HENRY [ILLUS.], The Hunting of the Snark: An Agony in Eight Fits
CARROLL, LEWIS; HOLIDAY, HENRY [ILLUS.]
The Hunting of the Snark: An Agony in Eight Fits
London: Macmillan, 1876. First Edition. Pictorial brown hardback cloth cover. 180mm x 140mm (7" x 6"). 83pp. 9 full-page plates. Lewis Carrolls celebrated narrative 'nonsense' poem, has probably been the subject of as much analysis and speculation, over the course of time, as have the immortal 'Alice' books themselves. Carroll always maintained that it was simply a poem for children - "l'm very much afraid I didn't mean anything but nonsense!", he protested. But all manner of interpretations have been bestowed on it, from the suggestion that it is a satire on the craving for social advancement, to the bleak assertion that it is an expression of existential agony. Readers must take their choice, or come up with their own, original definition; and perhaps therein lies the secret of the poem's lasting popularity. For it has proved as enduring as 'Alice' in its own way, attracting a number of able and original illustrators such as Ralph Steadman and Quentin Blake. But it is the first edition, with illustrations by the eminent Victorian artist, Henry Holiday, that is the most sought-after version of the tale. "The Hunting of the Snark" was published by Macmillan in 1876, eleven years after "Wonderland", and in the wake of "Looking Glass" (1872).. G in good condition without dust jacket. Light shelfwear. Label and label remmnants at pastedown. Dampstain at title page .
