  • Description

Elissa Bradley journeys through Wonderland grappling with theoretical issues and drawing on prior research in this engaging analysis.She examines the perspective that through the nonsense of the Alice books Lewis Carroll mirrors and mocks nineteenth century norms and values.

Take a peek Through the Looking Glass as Elissa discovers the truth behind the melancholy music that is the White Knight's song, experiences confusion over the Mad Hatter's riddle, looks at why Havilland Chepmell's 'Short Course of History' is described by a mouse as being 'the driest thing I know', finds reason behind the rudeness of the Wonderland creatures, attempts to makes sense of Humpty Dumpty's strange philosophy of language and learns the secret of the 'Jabberwocky' poem!!

During her debate of the added dimension to the Alice stories, Elissa speculates on how Carroll's personal life influenced the beliefs and accusations that are implied throughout this text of nonsense, in an attempt to understand not only the deeper meaning within, but also Carroll's arrival at such meaning.

So take advice from the Caterpillar and:

'"Come [with me ]!...I've got something important to say!" - This sounded promising, certainly.'
