Through the Looking Glass and “Phantasmagoria”

Lewis Carroll’s sequel to Alice in Wonderland brilliantly captures a young girl’s feelings about growing up in a nonsensical world.

Through the Looking Glass is followed by “Phantasmagoria”—a humorous poem about a little ghost who finds himself haunting the wrong building.

One of eleven children of a scholarly country parson, he studied mathematics at Oxford, obtained a university post, and then was ordained as a deacon but found true success with his masterpiece, Alice’s Adventures Under Ground, now known as Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, which originated as a story told to a young friend, Alice Liddell, during a boating trip on the Thames. Among his other works are Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There, The Hunting of the Snark, and Jabberwocky.
