520    An original and lively account of one of the most 
       influential figures of the Victorian age. Edward Lear 
       wrote some of the best-loved poems in English, including 
       "The Owl and the Pussycat," but the father of nonsense was
       far more than a poet. He was a naturalist, a brilliant 
       landscape painter, an experimental travel writer, and an 
       accomplished composer. Sara Lodge presents the fullest 
       account yet of Lear's passionate engagement in the 
       intellectual, social, and cultural life of his times. Lear
       had a difficult start in life. He was epileptic, asthmatic,
       and depressive, but even as a child a consummate performer
       who projected himself into others' affections. He became, 
       by John James Audubon's estimate, one of the greatest 
       ornithological artists of the age. Queen Victoria--an 
       admirer--chose him to be her painting teacher. He 
       popularized the limerick, set Tennyson's verse to music, 
       and opened fresh doors for children and adults to share 
       fantasies of magical escape. Lodge draws on diaries, 
       letters, and new archival sources to paint a vivid picture
       of Lear that explores his musical influences, his 
       religious nonconformity, his relationship with the Pre-
       Raphaelite movement, and the connections between his 
       scientific and artistic work. He invented himself as a 
       character: awkward but funny, absurdly sympathetic. In 
       Lodge's hands, Lear emerges as a dynamic and irreverent 
       polymath whose conversation continues to draw us in. 
       Inventing Edward Lear is an original and moving account of
       one of the most intriguing and creative of all Victorians.
