Criticism about Lewis Carroll

Lewis Carroll’s Relation to Contemporary Art
“As you read Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, consider the complex relations of these pre-electronic multi-media works and the questions they raise. For example, since the author of the verbal text (Dodgson/Carroll) so influenced (controlled?) the images that accompany it, can one interpret that verbal text without paying attention to the visual? What, in other words, is Alice in Wonderland or Through the Looking Glass — the verbal text alone or the combination of word and image? If the answer is the second, then what different interpretive strategies does the reader have to employ?”
Contains: Criticism, Commentary
From: Victorian Web
