    In ‘E.L.: Destruction’ Christopher Richardson neatly explains why luminaries like George Orwell and Anthony Burgess had reservations about Lear’s invented words. His neologisms differ in kind from those of Lewis Carroll and James Joyce. A ‘Runcible Controversy’ could sharpen our view of Lear’s individuality.
