Tina69911364: Edward Lear, 'Masada (or Sebbeh) on the Dead Sea' (1858)

Tina69911364: 'Jerusalem looking North West', by Edward Lear, painted 1859 from drawings made there in 1858 for a friend, Lord Clermont. One of the - I believe- five paintings made by Lear in Jerusalem.

Tina69911364: Edward Lear visited Palestine in 1858, and spent a fortnight making careful studies of Jerusalem from the surrounding hills. These formed the basis for a series of paintings, made for a close friend, on his retirement from the Customs at Liverpool.

Tina69911364: The 1st and the 4th seem very similar, apart from the color and some small details. Not sure I've found all. From the Jerusalem series, there's another one I posted before. Edward Lear (1812-1888)

johnrallan: This made me laugh! Worthy of an entry, in Edward Lear's book of Nonsense!

NotAdric: Featuring an Edward Lear pastiche. Victorian nonsense poetry is one of those things I just can't see anything in, at all.

vjc_torianist: update: it was the edward lear nonsense birds mug, peppermint tea, and oh my lord have I missed my soft and squishy mattress topper.

edward_guimont: Also, no disrespect to the very admirable Norman Lear, but who immediately thinks "Princess Bride is a Norman Lear movie"?

RobertBohan: Hunt also portrayed his contemporaries such as his PRB friends Rossetti (1853) & Millais (1853). Also shown is Edward Lear (1857). The latter is almost hallucinatory in its scrutiny.

youngpoetsnet: "They sailed to the Western Sea, they did, To a land all covered with trees, And they bought an Owl, and a useful Cart, And a pound of Rice, and a Cranberry Tart, And a hive of silvery Bees." Write your own nonsense poem!

Poem of the day

Don Marquis Poem
 by Don Marquis

I stood among the boats
The sinking sun, the angry sun,
Across the sullen wave
Laid the sudden strength of his red wrath
Like to a shaken glaive:-
Or did the sun pause in the west
To lift a sword at me,
Or was it she, or was it she,
