The Jabberwocky Index

Followers of my blog may notice a new item in the menu bar—Jabberwocky Index. While this site is not about the poem Jabberwocky, my daughter is correct—in the About page—about my fondness for the poem. In high school (1967-‘71), my friends and I found and shared various translations of this poem—actually I think it was my friend R*** H********* who found most of them. Besides the original poem, I had translations in French (tr. 1931), German (tr. 1872), and Latin (tr. circa 1871). I also had one parody version in Plain Geometry (1925).
