Through the Looking Glass

Through the Looking Glass

Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll (Charles Lutwidge Dodgson) is one of the top classic books. It is the sequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865) and contains a work of children's literature first published in 1871. 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 Looking Glass, there are many mirror themes, including opposites, time running backwards and so forth.
