The Crew - Snark Hunters

The CREW

From The Hunting of the Snark stanza 1
“Just the place for a Snark!
the Bellman cried,
As he landed his crew with care;”

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The crew consists of ten members, whose descriptions all begin with the letter B: a Bellman (the leader), a Boots, a Bonnet-maker, a Barrister, a Broker, a Billiard-marker, a Banker, a Butcher, a Baker, and a Beaver. The Boots is the only character who is not shown in any illustration in the original, a fact that has led to much speculation.

Two other members of the party as a whole are Hope and Care. They are represented in the illustration of the hunting party in corporal form. Although they do not appear as characters in the story, their presence is of critical importance to the progress of the undertaking.
