Poetry for Young People: Edward Lear Paperback / softback

Edited by Professor Edward Mendelson

Illustrated by Laura Huliska-Beith

Part of the Poetry for Young People series


Misunderstood by his peers and plagued by loneliness and low self-esteem, Edward Lear spent much of his time in the company of children, composing poems and songs for their amusement.

In a detailed introduction, Mendelson looks at Lear's serious and silly sides before selecting 15 limericks and 18 longer poems by the 19th-century wordsmith.

With useful commentary on each poem and fabulous, swirling illustrations by Laura Huliska-Beit, this book is the perfect introduction to the nonsensical world of Edward Lear.
