Book Discussion: World Literature Series – Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, by Lewis Carroll

January 10, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

World Book - Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, by Lewis Carroll

Carroll frames Alice in Wonderland as a dreamlike experience for Alice who drifts to sleep and dreams that she is following a white rabbit to Wonderland. Through the Looking Glass is also framed like a dream, but in this work, Alice is controlled by the rules of chess as she enters a geometrical landscape. Through them both, Carroll presents us with the ultimate question: what is reality?

Moderated by Professor Bill Schiavo  **For a full list of Bill Schiavo’s past book discussions, please click here!**
