By Carolyn Sigler

Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland (1865) and Through the having a look Glass (1871) are one of the so much enduring works within the English language. within the a long time following their ebook, writers on either side of the Atlantic produced no fewer than 200 imitations, revisions, and parodies of Carroll's fantasies for kids. Carolyn Sigler has accumulated the main attention-grabbing and unique of those responses to the Alice books, a lot of them lengthy out of print. Produced among 1869 and 1930, those works hint the terribly inventive, and infrequently severe, reaction of various writers. those writers―male and feminine, radical and conservative―appropriated Carroll's buildings, motifs, and issues of their Alice-inspired works as a way to interact in higher cultural debates. Their tales variety from Christina Rossetti's offended subversion of Alice's adventures, Speaking Likenesses (1874), to G.E. Farrow's witty myth experience, The Wallypug of Why (1895), to Edward Hope's hilarious parody of social and political foibles, Alice within the extremely joyful States (1928). someone who has ever Alice down the rabbit gap will benefit from the adventures of her literary siblings within the large Wonderland of the human imagination.
