An Edward Lear Collection
Narrated by Denis Daly, Sarah Bacaller and Lucy Bacaller
Have you been lately to Lake Pipple Popple? Perhaps you have spotted the Pobble who has no toes? Or maybe you have roosted in the Quangle Wangle's hat? Certainly Mr. Edward Lear has (he's written all about it). And now, you can listen to his tales read aloud, full of rhyme, rhythm and words that you won't find in the dictionary!
Edward Lear (1812 - 1888) was a creative and skilled Englishman who composed music, wrote poetry, and was a talented illustrator. He was earning an income from drawing by the age of 16 years. Lear is remembered today primarily for his nonsense poems, stories and songs, and for popularising the poetic form of the limerick. He spent the last decade of his life in San Remo, Italy.
The opening poem, How Pleasant To Know Mr Lear, was later used by T. S. Eliot as the basis of a mocking self portrait, "How unpleasant to meet Mr. Eliot!"
