Why We Love This

The Lear Omnibus, edited by R. L. Mégroz. London: Nelson, 1938. First printing thus. An early re-arrangement of Lear's nonsense poetry in an edition that devoted more space to his limericks and drawings, giving a page to each. Although most of the work is only randomly funny, there is a crazy logic to the world of outsiders and misfits that he describes, which still appeals to the child in us all.
