    I love autobios and this one is a hoot. I believe I do know Mr. Lear, in spirit, at least. (Report) Reply

    I can see the humor here, I can see a character being sketched here, and I can see that these things have been done well but to my shame I could not get involved in this poem's world. Perhaps another day I would, but not today (Report) Reply

    My dear Susan, come on! You're missing out on all the fun! I would have loved to be able to say
    myself 'how pleasant to know Mr. Lear'. Now, go on, give it another try and please read 'The Owl and the Pussycat', if you haven't already, and tell me you don't like it.

    I would indeed like to have known him. His poems were almost always humorous and he was a master of the limerick. (Report) Reply

    What splendid fun perpetrated by the inestimable Mr. Lear. Sure, 'nonsense' makes the heart grow fonder, what's the use to sulk and ponder, let imagination skitter, lest our beer turn somewhat bitter, open minds and baggy trousers, read me right, thou soggy browsers. (Report) Reply
