Evertype: Behind the Looking-Glass

Postby Evertype » Thu Nov 15, 2012 12:02 pm

Evertype would like to announce the publication of a new edition of Sherry L. Ackerman's book Behind the Looking-Glass: Reflections on the Myth of Lewis Carroll. The book offers a fresh perspective in the ongoing, con­tem­porary deconstruction of the Carroll Myth. Through rigorous examination of numerous myths that have been hitherto unquestioned, Ackerman skilfully positions Lewis Carroll in the theological and philosophical contexts of his time. She uncovers a Carroll whose radical religio-philosophical counter-response to patriarchal materialism moved his intellectual journey, intentionally or otherwise, deep into the waters of mysticism. The image of Carroll as a dreary Victorian conservative gives way to that of a man with wide intellectual parameters, an inquiring mind and bold, far-sighted vision.
