Through The Looking Glass

By Lewis Carroll

About This Book

In this, the second of the two Alice books, our long-haired, solemn heroine discovers that the mirror over the mantel has become "only a silvery mist," and she steps through it into a land of magical contradictions, live flowers, and mangled poetry. She opens a book, and . . . what is the matter with the writing? She holds the writing up to the mirror, and — voila: "T'was brillig and the slithy toves did gyre and gimble in the wabe . . ." — we have the splendid nonsense of The Jabberwocky! Come, slip through the mirror with Alice and enter her splendid world of Wonderland!

About Lewis Carroll

(1832-1898) Englishman Charles Dodson thought of himself as a scholar and teacher of mathematics at Christ Church, Oxford, rather than as an author. When he did write books, his first published work was a syllabus of plane geometry, followed by a biography of Euclid. His best known books, The Alice In Wonderland series, reflect the complex abstraction of higher mathematics, at the same time capturing the simple innocence of childhood.

He was shy. He stammered. But he was also a friend and storyteller to children, and the original of "Alice in Wonderland" was a handwritten copy of a story he had been telling one summer afternoon to the daughters of the Dean of his school — six-year-old Alice Liddell and her sisters. An enlarged and revised version was later published with the familiar illustrations by Sir John Tenniel. Together with its sequel, Through the Looking Glass, it is one of the best known children's books ever written, and Alice herself is one of the most familiar characters in literature.
