Edward Lear and Phonetics

John Well’s phonetic blog discusses what we can learn on Victorian pronunciation from Edward Lear’s limericks.

The Opinionator NY Times blog suggests that Victorian naturalists might be a model for some of Lear’s most famous characters: The Brittle-Stars Danced. The Stingray Smoked a Pipe.

The Financial Times has an article by Jackie Wullschlager on the new Birmingham exhibition of Pre-Raphaelite drawings: The Poetry of Drawing: Pre-Raphaelite Designs, Studies and Watercolours.
