the looking glass
the looking glass takes its name from the 1871 Lewis Carroll novel Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There: his sequel to Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. This piece does not depict Carroll’s narrative; instead it tries to conjure up Alice’s internal struggle as she contemplated entering the looking glass, all the while remembering her last encounters in Wonderland. the looking glass was written for my good friend and colleague, Clara Yang.
