Welcome back to Anonymous Grocer, a 30-day audio adventure in backwards poetry. Each day: a new poem, a new collection of words in unfamiliar and spiraling patterns, a new audio message to ease you into your day.
Today is a backwards reading of the classic ‘nonsense’ poem by Lewis Carroll: “Jabberwocky” (1871), which was first included in Through the Looking-Glass, the sequel to Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Always for the love of weirdening things, I figured: why not add an extra dose of nonsensicalism to an already eccentric piece?
