The Complete Verse and Other Nonsense
This volume, which contains material previously unpublished, presents all Lear's verse together with his other nonsense writing, including his stories, letters to children and several of his illustrated alphabets. For all the apparent simplicity of his work, Lear was a complex character, as Vivien Noake's illuminating introduction and extensive annotation make clear.
