    1. A book of nonsense poems, much in the same vein as Lewis Carroll's work. Lear, however, isn't as good as Carroll. Still fun though. Now I know where "Runsible", as in runsible spoon or cat comes from. I would recommend the book to literature fans and folks who want to know about the underpinnings of society. I would classify it as interesting, rather than entertaining. In terms of poetry, he's a little dated.

    3. Some very amusing, some just dull and repetitive.
