The Animal World of Edward Lear

In her new biography of Edward Lear Jenny Uglow observes that “when he was low Lear always felt closer to the animals than to the smart people around him” (p. 229) and she has now expanded on the idea in an article in The Guardian, “From ging-e-jonga to the Quangle Wangle Quee.”

Speaking of Lear and animals, Christine Jackson has reviewed Robert Peck’s The Natural History of Edward Lear in the Archives of Natural History, 44.2, October 2017. 385-386.
