The Red King's Dream, or Lewis Carroll in Wonderland
Jones, Jo Elwyn and J. Francis Gladstone
The Red King's Dream,
or Lewis Carroll in Wonderland
London: Jonathan Cape, 1995. First printing.
An entertaining piece of literary detection, in which the authors show how
was conceived by Carroll as a complicated lampoon on the political and academic figures of his day.
From Tennyson and Gladstone to Ellen Terry and Darwin, the author re-cast his villains and heroes as fictional monsters, living inside the most famous dream in children's literature.
SIGNED by both authors, on the title page.
