Lewis Carroll “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass”

“I had sent my heroine straight down a rabbit-hole … without the least idea what was to happen afterwards,” wrote Lewis Carroll, describing how Alice was conjured up one “golden afternoon” in 1862 to entertain his child-friend Alice Liddell. His dream worlds of nonsensical Wonderland and the back-to-front Looking-Glass kingdom depict order turned upside-down: a baby turns into a pig, time is abandoned at a disordered tea-party and a chaotic game of chess makes a seven-year-old girl a Queen. But amongst the anarchic humor and sparkling word play, puzzles and riddles, are poignant moments of nostalgia for lost childhood. Original and experimental, the Alice book is recommended for reading because it gives readers a window on both child and adult worlds.
