The Hunting of the Snark (An Agony in 8 Fits) is typically categorized as a nonsense poem written by Lewis Carroll. Written from 1874 to 1876, the poem borrows the setting, some creatures, and eight portmanteau words from Carroll's earlier poem "Jabberwocky" in his children's novel Through the Looking Glass (1871). Henry Holiday, the illustrator of the poem, thought of it as a "tragedy"
《猎鲨记》是路易斯·卡罗于1874年创作的打油诗，当时他42岁。 这首诗借鉴了小说《爱丽丝镜中奇遇》中的短诗《Jabberwocky》（无聊的话），尤其是其中的人物和混成词，但是它是一个独立的作品，于1876年由麦克米伦出版社首次出版。插画由亨利·霍利迪（Henry Holiday）创作。
The plot of this book follows a crew of ten trying to hunt the Snark, an animal which may turn out to be a highly dangerous Boojum. The only one of the crew to find the Snark quickly vanishes, leading the narrator to explain that it was a Boojum after all. The poem is dedicated to young Gertrude Chataway, whom Carroll met at the English seaside town Sandown in the Isle of Wight in 1875. Included with many copies of the first edition of the poem was Carroll's religious tract, An Easter Greeting to Every Child Who Loves "Alice".
