...was a great year for invention.
Among others, two in particular were produced, one more rife with innovation than the other, but both were clever, and they were...?

I hope invoking the year in the title doesn't make this puzzle abruptly collapse. early $poils via email, if so?

...cheezburgurz?
well, no, but I looked it up, and that was apparently also a good year for innovative introductions:
First cheeseburger
Henry Ford introduced the 40-hour work-week
Robert Goddard first employs liquid fuel rocketry
First public demo of TV

want to visit one of my other two puzzles? They're lonely, like my cats -- I'm away from the island presently... but maybe you should get some sleep, first

Could the relevant inventions be used in other fields than arts? Were the works of arts in question meant to be used somehow, besides what people normally do with works of arts of this genre?
Were the relevant inventions employed in conceptual stage of making works of arts? In the "production" stage? Were the relevant works of arts exhibited?

Will you let me know if/when my [brief LTPF list of artistic genres] will be in order, as I'm keeping it for later? I feel I'm running in circles...

Had the relevant ideas/conceptions for these works of arts appear earlier, would people have been technologically able to produce them?

So, in 1871 there were two relevant works of art produced, that employed new inventions. The works of art appeared in more than one copy each, they were writing, but not poetry, not prose, not drama and not press. Media are relevant. The inventions refer neither to the plot, nor to the form of the pieces. The pieces were svv of exhibited. The relevant genre of arts has existed for millennia. All accurate?
Were the pieces of writing letters? Were the pieces published? Was either inventor a female?

Ah, poems... So I think you missed "poetry" on my brief list :P

So I guess that things like rythm, rhyming scheme etc. are not relevant, as they contribute to the form...
Is the method of writing relevant poems relevant? Were they co-written by more than one person?

Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There? yes; and the lovely, complete, hardly-known full title -- good work
Jabberwocky? INDEED -- care to discern the other work, by the other poet? Exploring the topic/inhabitants of the poem will help you get there.
If you're weary of the puzzle, though, I'll $poil it... up to you... but my test audience enjoyed figuring the rest out.

Could the other poet be Edward Lear?

Are we looking for a common theme, e.g. cats?

Could the other poet be Edward Lear? hooray; yes -- very nice work
Are we looking for a common theme, e.g. cats? the only common theme is neologisms: invented words -- but yes, cats are common to both works, although they don't appear in The Jabberwocky
Clearly, though, it's my opportunity to post the


*******SPOILER*******

In 1871, Lewis Carroll published Through the Looking Glass, and What Alice Found There. Edward Lear also published his clever and well-known poem, The Owl and the Pussycat.
Both works are also known for including invented words.

Among other inclusions in Carroll’s book was his notorious poem, The Jabberwocky.
The invented words are rather too numerous to count.


`Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!"

He took his vorpal sword in hand:
Long time the manxome foe he sought --
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
And stood awhile in thought.

And, as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! And through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.

"And, has thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!'
He chortled in his joy.


`Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.


In Lear’s The Owl and the Pussycat, there’s really only one invented word [although the “bong-tree” is a fantasy, but both words already existed] – and actually, an invented device – which has even endured to use, today.
A “runcible spoon” has come to be known as a spoon which also has tines like a fork, although the word “runcible” would be derived from “runcinate,” principally a botanical term, essentially meaning “re-curved,” as in thorns which curve backward along a stem.


The Owl and the Pussy-cat went to sea
In a beautiful pea-green boat;
They took some honey, and plenty of money
Wrapped up in a five-pound note.
The Owl looked up to the stars above
And sang to a small guitar,
“O lovely Pussy, O Pussy, my love,
What a beautiful Pussy you are,
You are,
You are!
What a beautiful Pussy you are!”

Pussy said to the Owl, “You elegant fowl,
How charmingly sweet you sing!
Oh! Let us be married; too long we have tarried:
But what shall we do for a ring?
They sailed away for a year and a day,
To the land where the bong-tree grows;
And there in the wood a Piggy-wig stood,
With a ring at the end of his nose,
His nose,
His nose,
With a ring at the end of his nose.

"Dear Pig, are you willing to sell for one shilling
Your ring?” Said the Piggy, “I will.”
So they took it away, and were married next day
By the Turkey who lives on the hill.
They dined on mince and slices of quince,
Which they ate with a runcible spoon;
And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand,
They danced by the light of the moon,
The moon,
The moon,
They danced by the light of the moon.

thanks for participating, and particular props to Redwine for her tenacity, even despite perhaps not having been weaned with these English-Lit classics. Nice final skewer from Solo1
