After stepping through the looking glass, Lewis Carroll?s beloved heroine Alice finds herself yet again in an enchanting alternate world where she meets The White Knight, The Jabberwock and Tweedledee and Tweedledum, and re-encounters the nonsensical Red Queen. Filled with Carroll?s delightfully absurd characters and elaborately complex happenings, Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There exemplifies the literary nonsense genre that Carroll helped popularize in the nineteenth century.
Most adaptations of Lewis Carroll?s beloved books have combined the stories featured in Alice?s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass including the 1951 animated Disney film Alice in Wonderland. More recently, director Tim Burton?s Alice in Wonderland (2010) used Wonderland lore to create an entirely new storyline about Alice and many of the other characters made famous by Carroll?s novels.
