Alice in Space: The Sideways Victorian World of Lewis Carroll
Alice in Space: The Sideways Victorian World of Lewis Carroll
by Gillian Beer
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £23.85

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a terrific book: well researched, 17 April 2017
This is a terrific book: well researched, wide-ranging, engaging and readable. Gillian Beer shows that Lewis Carroll was actively engaged with the wealth of ideas of his time, in philosophy, maths, linguistics, evolution, and many other disciplines. The book is an important contribution to Carroll studies and also a great read, to be enjoyed by anyone who appreciates the *Alice* books. Highly recommended.

From the publisher's website:
Jan Susina, author of *The Place of Lewis Carroll in Children's Literature*:
'While Lewis Carroll’s importance to the history of children’s literature has long been recognized, this book convincingly establishes Carroll and the Alice books at the very heart of Victorian literature and culture. Here we learn how the Alice books engage in active conversations with the ideas of great minds like Charles Darwin, Thomas Henry Huxley, Max Müller, John Stuart Mill, and Emily Brontë. Beer brilliantly reveals Carroll to be, like his famous protagonist, always curious, always enquiring.'

This is a great shirt but the sizing is very small. Best to buy one or even two sizes larger than usual. This is the second one we've bought. Very happy with it.
