Edward Lear wrote a well-known autobiographical poem that begins 'How pleasant to know Mr Lear!' But how well do we really know him? On the one hand he is, in John Ashbery's words, 'one of the most popular poets who ever lived'; on the other hand he has often been overlooked or marginalized by scholars and in literary histories. James Williams's account, the first book-length critical study of the poet since the 1980s, sets out to re-introduce Lear and to accord him his proper place: as a major Victorian figure of continuing appeal and relevance, and especially as a poet of beauty, comedy, and profound ingenuity. Williams approaches Lear's work thematically, tracing some of its most fundamental subjects and situations. Grounded in attentive close readings, Williams also connects Lear's nonsense with his various other creative endeavours: as a zoological illustrator and landscape painter, a travel writer, and a prolific diarist and correspondent.

Edward Lear--the father of nonsense--wrote some of the best-loved poems in English. He was also admired as a naturalist, landscape painter, travel writer, and composer. Awkward but funny, absurdly sympathetic, Lear invented himself as a Victorian character. Sara Lodge offers a moving account of one of the era's most influential creative figures.
