Grade 6 Reading Lesson 4 Poetry – Jabberwocky

The poem you are going to read is Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll. The poem is one of the most nonsensical poems, and I warn you, you may understand not even a word. It happened to me too. I read it, paused, and read it again. Pondered for a while, then read it again.
Jabberwocky beautifully skates the thin edge of being understood and being nonsense. But such glorious nonsense! Read it yourself, and see if you can make a head or tail out of it. Also read the ‘Draggerwocky’ that follows.
