The Finest Nonsense of Edward Lear by Edward Lear

The Finest Nonsense of Edward Lear

by Edward Lear

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
1 Hr.16 Min.


Nearly 150 years since his poetry was first published, Lear's nonsense rhymes are still popular today. In this lively and colorful audiobook recording, Derek Jacobi reads Lear's most famous poems and most fantastic creations, including "The Owl and the Pussy-Cat", "The Daddy Long-Legs and the Fly", "The Jumblies", "The Dong with the Luminous Nose", and a collection of assorted limericks. Lear's poems gave the clear message that it's interesting, funny, and okay to be different, and that message is just as relevant now as it was in Lear's own day.
