On 12 May 2004, Edward Lear’s birthday, I am at last releasing the new portal for Nonsense literature. The Lear pages do not contain anything new, updating and renewing them is my next project, but you should find lots of interesting material:

  • A new Peter Newell site containing, among many other things, the first republication of a long run of his comic strip: The Naps of Polly Sleepyhead;
  • A web edition of the tallest book ever:The Flight of the Old Woman who was Tossed up in a Basket, London, 1844;
  • A comic book in which Santa Claus meets Alice;
  • An all new Pictures section containing full scans of two different colour editions of the Book of Nonsense;
  • A Sounds section, which at the moment only contains a BBC Radio 4 programme about The Owl and the Pussy-cat;
  • A Reading Shelf with Nonsense short stories and essays;
  • Well, much more…

I’ve been working on this for a very long time, so be kind: visit and share your thoughts and suggestions!
