Lewis Carroll

Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There

Read
«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.

'Now, here , you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!'

How nice and soft it sounds! Just as if some one was kissing the window all over outside. I wonder if the snow LOVES the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.” And when they wake up in the summer, Kitty, they dress themselves all in green, and dance about—whenever the wind blows—oh, that's very pretty!” cried Alice, dropping the ball of worsted to clap her hands. “And I do so WISH it was true! I'm sure the woods look sleepy in the autumn, when the leaves are getting brown.

Speak in French when you can't think of the English for a thing —turn out your toes as you walk—and remember who you are!
