Lewis Carroll Inspired Talk

11am 8 February 2019

Join David Elliot for a Lewis Carroll inspired talk here at the Gallery at 11am on February 8th 2019.

Although Lewis Carroll is best known as the author of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland(1865) and Through the Looking-Glass (1871),  he was also an avid reader and writer of poetry.  His own poems were varied – some just humorous nonsense, some filled with hidden meanings, and some serious poems about love and life.

David’s talk will expand on his love of Lewis Carroll’s poems The Hunting of the Snark and Jabberwocky.  He will also delve more into the history of this wonderful English writer.
