About The Walrus and the Carpenter

Lewis Carroll’s poem, “The Walrus and the Carpenter” from his book, Through the Looking Glass (1871) is often referred to as literary nonsense. The poem is recited by Tweedledum and Tweedledee to Alice. Marinsky includes many direct references from the poem’s illustrations, including walking oysters, the Carpenter’s hat, and the Walrus’ handkerchief.

“I weep for you,” the Walrus said, “I deeply sympathize.” With sobs and tears he sorted out Those of the largest size, Holding his pocket-handkerchief Before his streaming eyes.

“O Oysters,” said the Carpenter, “You’ve had a pleasant run! Shall we be trotting home again?” But answer came there none– And this was scarcely odd, because They’d eaten every one.
