Evertype: Davy and the Goblin

Postby Evertype » Thu Feb 17, 2011 2:40 pm

Evertype would like to announce the publication of a new edition of Davy and the Goblin, or, What Followed Reading "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland", written in 1884 by Charles Edward Carryl and illustrated by Edmund Birckhead Bensell.

From the back cover:

Davy and the Goblin appeared first in serialized form in the children’s periodical St Nicholas beginning in 1884; it was published in book form first in 1885 and remained in print for over 40 years.

The story begins on Christmas Eve when eight-year-old Davy drowses by the fireplace reading Lewis Carroll’s classic novel Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Soon he meets a Goblin who transforms the family longcase clock into a boat, beginning Davy on a “believing voyage” where he meets the Butterscotchmen, Mother Hubbard, the Giant Badorful, Robin Hood (and his daughter Little Red Riding), Robinson Crusoe, and other charming characters.

Davy and the Goblin’s use of nonsense and punning places it firmly amongst those works influenced by Lewis Carroll’s Wonderland; its fastpaced, kaleidoscopic narrative gives it an American flavour which foreshadows much fantastic literature of the twentieth century.

The idea of making Little Red Riding-Hood Robin Hood's Hood's daughter is really good.

I liked that too. Carryl thought of it in 1884... and I'd never thought of it until I read this book!

Wished I'd had that idea.

You know I originally had the idea about a grandfather clock boat as well

That just proves how good of an idea it was.
