Modernism in Wonderland: Legacies of Lewis Carroll.
Bloomsbury Academic
ISBN 9781350248717

Retracing the steps of a surprising array of 20th century writers who ventured into the fantastical, topsy-turvy world of Lewis Carroll’s fictions, this book demonstrates the full extent of Carroll’s legacy in literary modernism. Testing the authority of language and mediation through extensive word-play and genre-bending, the Alice books undoubtedly prefigure literary modernism at its upmost experimental.

The collection’s chapters look beyond literary style to show how Carroll’s writings had a far-reaching impact on modern life, from commercial culture to politics and philosophy. This book shows us the Alice we recognize from Carroll’s novels but also the Alice modernist writers encountered through
the looking-glass of these extraliterary discourses. Recovering a common touchstone between the likes of T. S. Eliot, James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, W. H. Auden, and writers conventionally regarded on the periphery of modernist studies, such as Dorothy L. Sayers, Sylvia Plath, Jorge Luis Borges, Flann O’Brien, and Vladimir Nabokov, this volume ultimately provides a new entry-point into a more broadly conceptualised global modernism.
