Description: Inspired by the serendipitous line "For the Snark was a Boojum, you see", which occurred to him during a stroll, Lewis Carroll crafted a classic work of nonsense poetry and intrigued readers for more than a century. The adventures of a motley crew in search of an elusive prey, The Hunting of the Snark is a fantasy that sails along on magical language, surreal images, and an undercurrent of sly humor. Frequently asked to reveal the meaning of The Hunting of the Snark, Carroll declared himself at a loss to explain what the voyage represented, conceding only that "words mean more than we mean to express when we use them". Martin Gardner discusses the interpretations -- political, moral, historical, and economic -- that have been applied to the poem and provides detailed annotations throughout.
