Jabberwocky Recited

UPDATE: Jabberwocky in German

UPDATE: My own recital – a bit panto

Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll is one of my favourite poems. Widely regarded as the greatest nonsense poem ever written, it has stuck in my head from an early age and I love reciting and performing it.

This evening I’ve found a number of great recitals of the poem on YouTube. First up is voice de jour Benedict Cumberbatch
