A Fantastic Children's Classic The childhood classics Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass for almost 150 years have been referenced and adapted numerous times over the years, but it’s not until you’ve read the originals that you truly understand why Lewis Carroll’s work ...

One day, a young girl named Alice is sitting on the riverbank with her sister, when she sees a curious looking white rabbit. She soon after falls into the magical world of Wonderland, where she meets a series of strange creatures. (source) I read this several years ago, but for some reason real...

Upon this year, the 150th anniversary of the publication of Alice in Wonderland, I decided to re-read this wonderful children's story once again.

Quick review for a quick read and classic tale. I happened to grab this from my library for a re-read and loved it as much as I did the first time I read it. Alice is quite a character who gets in over her head as she's sitting with her sister in the beginning and happens to see a white rabbit carry...

To speak in broad unresearched sweeps, in many ways I think the Victorian era marks a nadir in British history. The miserable Queen and pitiless Empress instituted misery at home and imposed it abroad along with death and dehumanisation. Architecture was shoddy and parochial. Theatre was shoddy and ...
