Book Overview
Through the Looking Glass is a work of children's literature by Lewis Carroll (Charles Lutwidge Dodgson) first published in 1871. It is the sequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865). The themes and settings of Looking Glass make it a kind of mirror image of Wonderland. While the first book begins outdoors in the warm month of May, uses frequent changes in size as a plot device and draws on the imagery of playing cards; the second book opens indoors on a wintry night in November exactly six months later, uses frequent changes in time and spatial directions as a plot device and draws on the imagery of chess. In it, there are many mirror themes, including opposites, time running backwards and so forth. This publication of Through the Looking Glass is part of the Qualitas Classics Fireside Series, where pure, ageless classics are presented in clean, easy to read reprints.
