'The Mouses's Tale' by Lewis Carroll (1832-1898) from 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' published in 1865. This is an example of 'concrete' poetry, also referred to as a 'pattern', 'shape' and 'visual' poetry where the typographical presentation helps convey meaning, rhythm and/or rhyme. From Chapter 3 'A Caucus-Race and a Long Tale'. Taken from a 1888 edition of the book ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’ published by Macmillan & Co. For further earlier examples of shape poetry refer to images E3PW7Y and E3PW7M depicting 'The Altar' and 'Easter Wings' by George Herbert (1593-1633).
