Edward Lear wrote a well known autobiographical poem that begins How pleasant to know Mr Lear But how well do we really know him On the one hand he is, in John Ashbery s words, one of the most popular poets who ever lived on the other hand he has often been overlooked or marginalized by scholars and in literary histories James Williams s account, the first book length critical study of the poet since the 1980s, sets out to re introduce Lear and to accord him his proper place as a major Victorian figure of continuing appeal and relevance, and especially as a poet of beauty, comedy, and profound ingenuity Williams approaches Lear s work thematically, tracing some of its most fundamental subjects and situations Grounded in attentive close readings, Williams also connects Lear s nonsense with his various other creative endeavours as a zoological illustrator and landscape painter, a travel writer, and a prolific diarist and correspondent.
