Aspects of Alice

Aspects of Alice: Lewis Carroll’s Dream Child as Seen Through the Critics’ Looking-glasses, 1865-1971 edited by Robert Philips. Published by Penguin 1971, this copy 1981.

ISBN: 0140037950

A collection of essays and criticisms on Alice, including contributions from Virginia Woolf,  Alexander Woolcot (Lewis Carroll’s Gay Tapestry), A.M.E. Goldschmidt (Alice in Wonderland Psychoanalyzed), John Skinner (About the Symbolisation of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland), Edmund Wilson (C.L. Dodgson: The Poet Logician) and W.H. Auden.

Also has the lyrics to Grace Slick’s White Rabbit.

Eclectic, much?

My first copy belonged to dad, and is in pieces, but is precious. I have a newer reading copy, but this is rapidly heading the same way: it seems this book has a built in obsolescence…
