It was great fun to read the Alice adventures again, as an adult and with critical and biographical assist of this Norton Edition. Carroll's play with language and logic and societal issues is very pre-Monty Python. Ironically, the satirical fantasy was like a "looking glass" version of living through the 2020 Covid-19 world-wide shutdown and quarantine. Carroll poses questions about honest, authentic language and abuses of power by martinets in power, questions that should be applied to today's petty tyrants seeking their own little bit of power over their fellow man. Fortunately, you don't have to wear a mask while enjoying the quirky and whimsical Lewis Carroll.
