Summer Camp: August 22nd

 

I was just reading this book, that I've been meaning to read for the last ten years.

And of course they included "The Jabberwocky" Here it is. 

I noticed the beloved Jabberwocky poem by Lewis Carrol.

It occurred to me that Lewis Carrol set up the reader right away introducing made up words. The reader understands and acclimates quickly. Isn't it interesting that you can clue a reader in so quickly to something so unfamiliar? Isn't it a liberating to think that instead of limiting your ideas you can present your idea to the reader in a way that clues the reader in?
