This is a fascinating re-examination of Lewis Carroll’s works by the late Elizabeth Sewell, a noted critic, poet, novelist, and founding member of the LCSNA. After Sewell’s death, Clare Imholtz edited the manuscript, working closely with David Schenck, executor of the Sewell estate, to ensure that this important work would make it before the public. This eye-opening book revisits Carroll’s nonsense in both well-known and neglected works by exploring its potential relationships to nihilisim, surrealism, and a list of other -isms beloved by 19th– and 20th-century French scholars, with thought-provoking results.
