In the shadow of the dreamchild

by Karoline Leach | 01 September 2015
Category: General Biography
Synopsis
A revolutionary and much-acclaimed study of the work and motives of the Alice In Wonderland author This is the most significant biographical work on the author of Alice In Wonderland to be published in recent years, and this new edition marks the 150th anniversary of the publication of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland . Karoline Leach's study contends that Carroll was far from being emotionally-and sexually-obsessed with female children and his "muse" Alice Liddell. She tells the strange story of how the false image of Carroll came into being and how he adored-and was adored by-women of all ages and enjoyed adult relationships that woud have scandalized the Victorian age in which he lived. The author gained access to unpublished evidence from the family archive, as well as letters and diaries, that led her to uncover Carroll's secret passion for another member of "Alice's" family. In The Shadow of The Dreamchild is a radical re-evaluation of the life and work of one of England's most mysterious literary figures, and the revised edition expands on Leach's important research.
