Poetry is an artform. It is different from ‘regular’ text, more condensed and ”frequently rely for their effect on imagery, word association, and the musical qualities of the language used.” (poetry.org)
”The Walrus and the Carpenter” is a poem from the novel Through the Looking Glass, and What Alice Found There.
(The original extract from Alice in Wonderland (1951))
(Lewis Carroll ~ The Walrus and The Carpenter ~ poem with text)
This presentation [below] ”of the beautifully ridiculous, ridiculously beautiful ”The Walrus and the Carpenter” breaks the poem into each of its stanzas and sometimes into individual lines. Each stanza or line is accompanied by an image from National Geographic.”
More poems by Lewis Carroll to be found at Poetry Foundation which is a good site for poetry; ”The Poetry Foundation, publisher of Poetry magazine, is an independent literary organization committed to a vigorous presence for poetry in our culture. It exists to discover and celebrate the best poetry and to place it before the largest possible audience.”
National Geographic also has an article ”The Wonderland of Lewis Caroll” available to read and view digitally. It is free but requires you to register. I recommend it!
