Po drugiej stronie lustra i co tam znalazła Alicja. Through The Looking-Glass And What Alice Found There

Po drugiej stronie lustra (ang. Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There) – wydana w 1871 roku druga część przygód Alicji autorstwa Lewisa Carrolla, będąca kontynuacją Alicji w Krainie Czarów. Ze względu na swoją oryginalność istnieje do tego utworu wiele odniesień w literaturze, sztuce i filmie. Z książki pochodzi uznawany za szczytowe osiągnięcie angielskiej poezji absurdalnej wiersz Jabberwocky. (za Wikipedia). Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There (also known as Alice Through the Looking-Glass or simply Through the Looking-Glass) is a novel published on 27 December 1871 (though indicated as 1872) by Lewis Carroll and the sequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865). Alice again enters a fantastical world, this time by climbing through a mirror into the world that she can see beyond it. There she finds that, just like a reflection, everything is reversed, including logic (for example, running helps one remain stationary, walking away from something brings one towards it, chessmen are alive, nursery rhyme characters exist, and so on). Through the Looking-Glass includes such verses as "Jabberwocky" and "The Walrus and the Carpenter", and the episode involving Tweedledum and Tweedledee. The mirror above the fireplace that is displayed at Hetton Lawn in Charlton Kings, Gloucestershire (a house that was owned by Alice Liddell's grandparents, and was regularly visited by Alice and Lewis Carroll) resembles the one drawn by John Tenniel and is cited as a possible inspiration for Carroll. It was the first of the "Alice" stories to gain widespread popularity, and prompted a newfound appreciation for its predecessor when it was published. Książka w dwóch wersjach językowych: polskiej i angielskiej. A dual Polish-English language edition.
