Edward Lear and Food

You would think that writing over 500 essential pages on Edward Lear should have been enough for Jenny Uglow who, not thinking so, has a long article on food in Lear on the Times Literary Supplement website entitled “Full of Veal-Cutlets and Chocolate-Drops.” I sincerely hope this is an outline for her lecture at the Cheltenham Literature Festival on 13 October; or, considering she also has a long review of a book on Hans Sloane in the current New York Review of Books, she could tell the rest of us how she manages to get 8-day weeks.
