    I remember this poem from my secondery school days 54yrs ago at Beckfield Lane school York, the class was asked to read it out aloud one by one, when after a few attempts by various pupils, some were good readers, it was found that no one could compleat the first line, instead of explaining the words to us the teacher asked if anyone could read the poem, when no one could it was very upsetting for all as he was a very arrogant and awful teacher, he spent the rest of that class telling us that we were all useless. But now after finding it on the poem Finder I can learn it myself and explain it to my grandchildren. Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll. A poem to consider learning. (Report) Reply

    this to me is the most delicious example of how intent can be used to relate meaning outside of content. (Having just been somewhat incoherent myself, I guess this could be a poor example of the same- sigh.) (Report) Reply
