商品描述

媒体推荐

"Delightfully surreal...save this book for the brightest and most adventurous young word-worms on your holiday shopping list...Singh's daring illustrations will appeal to older children eager to leave the world of candy-colored cuteness behind."
New Yorker

"At last, the legend of the brave, if peculiar, companions who set out to bag a snark (arming themselves "with forks and with hope") gets lavish treatment from [Mahendra] Singh....These may be the fittest illustrations ever created for Carroll's distinctively Victorian nonsense concoctions."
—Laura Miller, Salon

"[C]hallenging and delightful."
Marilyn Dahl, Shelf Awareness


"It is not children who ought to read the words of Lewis Carroll."
G.K. Chesterton

"Singh's black-and-white surrealistic treatment of Carroll's classic poem is perfect...takes the ideology of Carroll's nonsense to new visual levels. Far beyond a simplistic, literal depiction of the poem, each panel is thoughtfully created, filled with puzzles, jokes, and allusions."
Library Journal

作者简介

Oxford University mathematics professor Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832 – 1898), under his pen name Lewis Carroll, created some of the most brilliant, original and uniquely inventive literature in the English language. He is most famous for three magical works: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Through the Looking-Glass, and the witty, whimsical and ever-elusive The Hunting of the Snark.
 
When pressed to explain the meaning of The Hunting of the Snark, Carroll invariably replied that he did not know. “I’m very much afraid I didn’t mean anything but nonsense!” he wrote in a letter to friends, “Still, you know, words mean more than we mean to express when we use them: so a whole book ought to mean a great deal more than the writer meant. So, whatever good meanings are in the book, I’m very glad to accept as the meaning of the book. The best I’ve seen is…that the whole book is an allegory on the search for happiness. I think that fits beautifully in many ways.”
 
About the Artist
Mahendra Singh is an illustrator and longstanding Lewis Carroll aficionado. He is a member of the Lewis Carroll Society of North America and an editor for their journal, the Knight Letter. For Singh, creating the illustrations for The Hunting of the Snark "has been a labor of love—fitting Lewis Carroll into a proto-Surrealist straitjacket with matching Dada cufflinks."

平均5.0 星 'his friends called him Candle-Ends; and his enemies Toasted-Cheese' 2014年7月18日

Lewis Carroll is awesome! no poet, not even Ogden Nash, is able to plumb the depths of utter ridiculousness the way he can. The Hunting of The Snark, like Jabberwocky, is an artfully random parody of the overly dramatic ballads the Victorian world was so fond of. the Bellman sails his ship and crew haphazardly across the oceans in search of the wonderful Snark, only to find a treacherous Boogum instead. also, there is a beaver who makes lace.
平均5.0 星 The most brilliantly illustrated Carroll book since John Tenniel! 2017年1月24日

Astounding "graphic novel" version of the long, crazy, beautiful satire of an epic poem by Lewis Carroll, who wrote Aline and Through the Looking Glass.

The artist Mahendra Singh, was in charge of the Alice Society and illustrated my book ENCYCLOPAEDIA OF HELL.

This is a book I read often after visiting my medication dispensary.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

平均4.0 星 A Lighthearted Nonsense Adventure 2013年7月20日
评论者 Scotty - 已在美国亚马逊上发表

If you're tired of reading authors who aren't good writers and take themselves too seriously...read Lewis Carroll. The complete inverse, Carroll had a real talent for rhyme and meter, but in "The Hunting of the Snark" toward not other end than to make the colossal and delightfully well-versed joke that is this poem.
Perhaps the strangest thing with Carroll is his consistency. He makes a bizarre statement that you think has no relevance to the story whatsoever, and then it ends up being referenced constantly in the remainder of the poem.
I would also recommend this to any writer suffering from "taking-oneself-too-seriously syndrome". This poem will knock it right out of you.
平均5.0 星 Another Masterpiece from Lewis Carroll 2013年7月11日
评论者 Robert Guttman - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
版本: Kindle电子书 已确认购买
The Hunting of the Snark is another masterpiece of nonsensical verse from the inimitable mind of the author of Alice in Wonderland, Through the Looking Glass and Jabberwocky. Lewis Carroll was a master of the art of writing of nonsense that was not really nonsense, as exemplified in The Hunting of the Snark. On one level this story, about the hunt for a mythical creature by a ship's crew made up of assorted strange characters, makes absolutely no sense at all. However, on deeper consideration, the story is perfectly comprehensible. In fact, there are scholars who believe that yet deeper meanings are concealed within the work, and that the poem was actually written in cypher. The individual reader will have to decide for himself, and will undoubtedly enjoy the experience.

平均5.0 星 Great nonsense poem with great pictures 2011年3月7日
评论者 Amazon Customer - 已在美国亚马逊上发表

This review is of the Kindle edition of The Hunting of the Snark with illustrations by Mahendra Singh.

I have always loved Lewis Carroll's nonsense, both the prose and the poetry and The Hunting of the Snark is one of the best long nonsense poems there is.

This edition is excellently illustrated by Mahendra Singh with pen and ink drawings of the important parts of the story. There is a drawing for most verses that interprets the ideas of the verse, or verses, that it accompanies.

The only problem with this excellent edition is with the lack of page breaks in the main text. This results in some of the smaller pictures appearing on different pages to their associated texts, it would be better if they were on the same page. Apart from this one minor imperfection this is an excellent edition.
