Description

About Lewis Carroll

Lewis Carroll was an English author, poet and mathematician. His most notable works are Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel Through the Looking-Glass.

Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There

The sequel to Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Alice again enters a fantastical world, this time by climbing through a mirror into the world that she can see beyond it. There she finds that, just like a reflection, everything is reversed, including logic. It includes such verses as ‘Jabberwocky’ and ‘The Walrus and the Carpenter’, and the episode involving Tweedledum and Tweedledee. It was the first of the ‘Alice’ stories to gain widespread popularity, and prompted a newfound appreciation for its predecessor when it was published.
