Lewis Carroll’s sequel to Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland finds Alice transported to a strange new world, trapped in a fantastical game of kings and queens
Through the Looking-Glass finds Alice six months after her fateful fall down the rabbit hole. This time, the portal to another world takes the form of a large mirror mounted above the fireplace mantle. Curious as to what lies on the other side of the mirror’s reflection, Alice leans into the glass surface and once again tumbles into an unknown land. It is here that she first reads the perplexing poem “Jabberwocky,” meets Tweedledee and Tweedledum, and journeys through forests and across streams, encountering many odd characters along the way, to reach the castle where she will be named queen.
A classic of children’s literature, riven with rich themes and enchanting symbolism, Through the Looking-Glass is just as beguiling today as it was upon its first publication in 1871.
