The Hunting of the Snark free pdf Composed in heroic couplets and full of riddles, puns and mysteries, Carroll's darkest nonsense poem has famously been said to describe 'with infinite humour the impossible voyage of an improbable crew to find an inconceivable creature'. A crew of 10 members, all beginning with the letter 'B' cross the ocean in search of the elusive 'snark' - guided by a blank piece of paper they use as a map. Now, in a labour of love, illustrator and long-standing Carroll fan Mahendra Singh has given his own, graphic novel rendition of this classic tale.

About Lewis Carroll

Oxford University mathematics professor Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832 - 1898), under his pen name Lewis Carroll, created some of the most brilliant, original and uniquely inventive literature in the English language. He is most famous for three magical works: "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland," "Through the Looking-Glass," and the witty, whimsical and ever-elusive "The Hunting of the Snark." When pressed to explain the meaning of "The Hunting of the""Snark, "Carroll invariably replied that he did not know. "I'm very much afraid I didn't mean anything but nonsense!" he wrote in a letter to friends, "Still, you know, words mean more than we mean to express when we use them: so a whole book ought to mean a great deal more than the writer meant. So, whatever good meanings are in the book, I'm very glad to accept as the meaning of the book. The best I've seen is...that the whole book is an allegory on the search for happiness. I think that fits beautifully in many ways." About the ArtistMahendra Singh is an illustrator and longstanding Lewis Carroll aficionado. He is a member of the Lewis Carroll Society of North America and an editor for their journal, the "Knight Letter." For Singh, creating the illustrations for "The Hunting of the Snark" "has been a labor of love--fitting Lewis Carroll into a proto-Surrealist straitjacket with matching Dada cufflinks."
