La facoltà, infantile per eccellenza, di osservare con perfetto candore ciò che ci circonda, servì a Carroll per mettere a nudo le assurdità e le incoerenze della vita adulta e per dar vita a incantevoli giochi basati sulle regole della logica. I personaggi che in Alice nel Paese delle Meraviglie sono carte da gioco in Attraverso lo specchio, il suo seguito, sono pezzi degli scacchi: il loro comportamento è dettato dalle regole della partita, ma si colora di originalissimi toni comici. Per le situazioni, gli affascinanti esperimenti verbali e una satira sottile che anticipa i modi dell’assurdo, questi due capolavori della letteratura continuano a esercitare una grande attrazione sui lettori di ogni età.

Read both as a child, and again as an adult. Loved and appreciated it then; love and appreciate it now. A book everyone should read at least once, and one that I hope children are still reading today.
This is a weird one. The more I read the more I'm okay with the weirdness. Does that say something about me?
