Hello there! Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers!
I hope that your week is off to a great start and only continues to get better with each passing moment. Today's post is a rather unique look at a book held dear in the hearts of many readers round the world as well as a multitude of movie goers! Why is a raven like a writing desk? I haven't the slightest idea, but perhaps the folks who wrote this book do! Today's book of choice is....
Curiouser and Curiouser
William Irwin and Richard Brian Davis
An interesting look at the classic tale of Alice in Wonderland through the discerning lense of philosophy, this book is in a class all its own. For anyone that ever wondered where the White Rabbit was REALLY going, or if he was simply a representation of something more dark and sinister from our everyday society...fall down the infamous hole in search of a deeper understanding of this fantastical tale.
So, confession time, I went into this book with two things on my mind. First and foremost, the new Alice in Wonderland movie just came out a few weeks ago and yeah, I was curious about what hidden messages were being seen beyond the garden green foliage walls of the Queen's court. Second, the one author (Davis) is a professor at a college near my original hometown and I was intrigued to see what they felt should be put on display for the masses in this uniquely titled book. Boy did I not realize the magnitude of what I was walking into....something akin to Alice coming upon the unique game of croquet played by the Red Queen....flamingos and all.
Until next time....happy reading!
