Wikipedia, Jan. 30, 2016 (Edward Lear (12 or 13 May 1812 in Holloway, Middlesex, England-29 January 1888 in Sanremo, Liguria, Italy) was an English artist, illustrator, musician, author and poet, and is known now mostly for his literary nonsense in poetry and prose and especially his limericks. He also composed and published twelve musical settings of Tennyson's poetry.)
