Edward Lear Studies

In 2004, I wrote my Hon­ours The­sis at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Syd­ney on Edward Lear, and revived and expand­ed my research as a two-part cel­e­bra­tion for the 170th anniver­sary of the pub­li­ca­tion of A Book of Non­sense (here and here).

In July 2017, I had the hon­our of talk­ing with Lish Fejer of ABC Radio Can­ber­ra about Lear’s life and work. You can lis­ten to the full inter­view here.

I am cur­rent­ly work­ing on a cre­ative project based on the life of Edward Lear and am always delight­ed to hear from fel­low Lear lovers.

In hon­our of the Great Lear, here are my own poems for chil­dren. I hope you enjoy!
