Seguito di Alice nel paese delle meraviglie, Attraverso lo specchio (1871) ne riprende i personaggi e le ambientazioni fantastiche, pur in una chiave meno trasognata e più malinconica. Nel mondo a rovescio che Alice trova al di là dello specchio di camera sua, sei mesi dopo il suo primo viaggio nel paese delle meraviglie, è valida una sola regola: credere all’impossibile. Le carte da gioco si tramutano qui nei pezzi di una scacchiera; la sequela di imprevisti e trabocchetti in una sfrenata corsa tra filastrocche, poesie, giochi. E mentre Alice si muove sulla scacchiera, di casella in casella, impara a difendersi, a dire la sua, a entrare nel gioco dell’eccentrico e dell’incredibile, a capire e a simpatizzare con gli esseri stravaganti che incontra, allucinati ma ricchi di umanità.

"But are you really pro-life?" asked Alice. "Because you know, I've heard pro-life people talk before, and they sound quite different." "When I use a word," Trumpty Drumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, "it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less." "The question is," said Alice Leggi tutto

Goodreads having eaten my first review of this book, I need to hastily rewrite another. Basically Alice in Wonderland is the superior book, but not by much. Book 2 is proof that Lewis Carroll can make lightning strike twice. In book 2, Alice finds herself through her mirror, and interacts with the ki Leggi tutto
If you love children's stories, you will love Through the Looking Glass. If you love magic, you will love Through the Looking Glass. If you love words, you will love Through the Looking Glass. I love Through the Looking Glass.
I think that the failure not only of Children's Literature as a whole, but of our very concept of children and the child's mind is that we think it a crime to challenge and confront that mind. Children are first protected from their culture--kept remote and safe--and then they are thrust incongruous Leggi tutto
A group read with my buddies. "The time has come," the Walrus said,"To talk of many things:Of shoes--and ships--and sealing-wax--Of cabbages--and kings--And why the sea is boiling hot--And whether pigs have wings." The second adventure of Alice might be slightly less known than the first one, but this Leggi tutto
