The article discusses about famous writer and poet, Lewis Carroll. Carroll's famous book "Through the Looking Glass," the main character, Alice, finds a book containing a confusing poem in which half the words are imaginary. Take another look at the nonsense words in the poem. Alice figured out that, in the poem, somebody killed something. The poem is named "Jabberwocky," which is a great poem to read out loud. Don't worry too much about how to pronounce the weird words.
