Through The Looking Glass is the sequel to Alice’s Adventures
in Wonderland. It is based on his meeting with another Alice,
Alice Raikes. Set some six months later than the earlier book, Alice
again enters a fantastical world, this time by climbing through a
mirror into the world that she can see beyond it.
The book takes a look at the world of the mirror and the world
beyond it. Reflections, distortions, and fantasy are major ingredients
in this wonderful book, which brings together the worlds of the
child and the adult. Sparkling characters are found in the narrative,
ranging from Humpty Dumpty to the Red Queen to the Unicorn.
The story opens on a snowy, wintry night, uses frequent changes
in time and spatial directions as a plot device, and draws on the
imagery of chess. In it, there are many mirror themes, including
opposites, time running backwards, and so on.
