They roused him with muffins—they roused him with ice— 
They roused him with mustard and cress— 
They roused him with jam and judicious advice— 
They set him conundrums to guess. 
When at length he sat up and was able to speak, 
His sad story he offered to tell; 
And the Bellman cried "Silence! Not even a shriek!" 
And excitedly tingled his bell. 

A masterpiece of nonsensical verse by the enigmatic author of Alice In Wonderland inspired by the serendipitous line "For the Snark was a Boojum, you see", which Lewis Carroll claimed occurred to him while on a stroll one day. The adventures of a motley crew in search of an elusive prey, The Hunting Of The Snark is a fantasy that sails along on magical language, surreal images, and an undercurrent of sly humor.
