LEAR, Edward

Regular price $125.00 Sale

Edward Lear (1812-1888) was a British author, poet, and illustrator best known for his "nonsense" poetry collected with his original illustrations in this edition. In addition to his importance in the study of Victorian and children's literature and culture, Lear is also of interest to the study of gay and lesbian literary and cultural history. Lear's most tormented and significant relationship was with life-long friend Frankllin Lushington who did not return his romantic feelings. Lear's poetry and illustrations are significant for their humour, social satire, and their influence on illustrated children's literature since the nineteenth century.
