Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass
Lewis Carroll
Children’s
Aug 7, 2018
More than the sum of its parts, Lewis Carroll’s Alice oeuvre has taken root in our collective imagination like few other literary creations. Despite—or perhaps because of—its nonsensical pedigree, it has proved to be an addictive pleasure for analysts seduced by its dense mix of childish frivolities, hallucinatory happenings, logical puzzles, and keen adult observations. Carroll’s imagery, phrases, and characters have not only been attached to myriad toys and games, but continue to enliven the language in everything from rock ’n’ roll lyrics to ordinary conversation. Most remarkably, although the Alice books date from the nineteenth century and are as ingrained in our culture as any stories ever told, they remain as fresh as the day they were written, delighting new readers every day of every year.
