Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There

«Through the Looking Glass, and What Alice Found There» is the sequel to «Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland», and is likewise a humoristic nonsense story for children of all ages, written by Lewis Carroll (pseudonym of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson) and first published in 1871.

In this book Alice meets the Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the White and Red Queens, Humpty Dumpty, and the White Knight.

The book contains the nonsense verse of the Jabberwock and the Walrus and the Carpenter.

In Through the Looking-Glass, brooks and hedges divide the countryside into one giant chessboard, Alice plays the part of a pawn.

In his stories, Carroll blurs the boundaries between being awake and being asleep so that it becomes difficult to tell where reality ends and dreaming begins.

Alice watched the White King as he slowly struggled up from bar to bar, till at last she said, “Why, you'll be hours and hours getting to the table, at that rate. I'd far better help you, hadn't I?” But the King took no notice of the question: it was quite clear that he could neither hear her nor see her.

“It seems very pretty,” she said when she had finished it, “but it's RATHER hard to understand!” (You see she didn't like to confess, ever to herself, that she couldn't make it out at all.) “Somehow it seems to fill my head with ideas—only I don't exactly know what they are! However, SOMEBODY killed SOMETHING: that's clear, at any rate—”
“But oh!” thought Alice, suddenly jumping up, “if I don't make haste I shall have to go back through the Looking-glass, before I've seen what the rest of the house is like! Let's have a look at the garden first!” She was out of the room in a moment, and ran down stairs—or, at least, it wasn't exactly running, but a new invention of hers for getting down stairs quickly and easily, as Alice said to herself. She just kept the tips of her fingers on the hand-rail, and floated gently down without even touching the stairs with her feet; then she floated on through the hall, and would have gone straight out at the door in the same way, if she hadn't caught hold of
