'It's Lear's own quirks of fancy, of course, that supply the roast spiders and the quadrille ...' - Quentin Blake
Edward Lear (12 May 1812 - 29 January 1888) was an artist, illustrator and writer known for his nonsensical poetry and his limericks, a form which he popularized.
"Edward Lear was one of the great nineteenth-century eccentrics. His art was as British as nursery rhymes and crumpets for tea yet he spent a lifetime escaping the constraints of Victorian England. . . . Poet friends such as Tennyson sneered at him, yet for every reader of In Memoriam there are now thousands who can recite ''The Owl and the Pussycat'' by heart."-Financial Times
