Michael Rosen: Edward Lear - some thoughts and news

| No Comments

Lear Bicentennial

It's bicentennial year for Edward Lear (200 years since his birth).
Michael Rosen rates him highy.

I think he is a fascinating, contradictory, problematic figure who produced some of the best nonsense poetry ever. He was original, out of the ordinary, sad, disruptive and at times utterly haunting.
