In this poem a father is talking to his son about a Jabberwocky and other made up beings. Trying to scare his son with these stories and making him believe in this horrible character. One that attacked a man relaxing on a tree, and got defeating by his sword he kept by. He is acting happy and excited about killing the creature. The end goes back to the beginning, sometimes when poets do this they are letting you believe that he end of the story is just a new beginning.

The interpretation is about how an innocent man was able to fight of a horrendous creature from the depths and win. How it isn’t about size that matters, just how you use it. The big man doesn’t only have to win, he will only win if you let him. If you fight back there is always the potential you can win and no longer have to be beaten upon.
