Examination of Chapter 9 Through...

Examination of Chapter 9 Through...

DIS>:-) Let us compare the chapter 9 of Through the Looking Glass in your site:
`What do you mean by `If you really are a Queen"?
What right have you to all yourself so?
You can't be a Queen, you know, till you've passed the proper examination.
And the sooner we begin it, the better.'
The Online Literature Library published also this version with potentially: DIS:-)
- DIS:-z Unbalanced quotes in `If you really are a Queen"
- DIS:-S "all" instead of "call" in `What right have you to all yourself so?'

In the Project Gutenberg Ebook, one can read:
`What do you mean by "If you really are a Queen"?
What right have you to call yourself so?
You can't be a Queen, you know, till you've passed the proper examination.
And the sooner we begin it, the better.'
DIS:-/ Lenny, what is the appropriate syntax to quote a quote within a quote
according to Lewis Carroll?
Before everything, could you examine if the letter "c" needs to be added before "all"?

Eric,

This topic needs to go into another subforum. And I have NO idea what you are asking me. Please clarify.

Feedback about 2chpt9.html

Feedback about 2chpt9.html

Lenny, there is a possible typo: the letter "c" is missing before the verb "all".

My first underlined hyperlink pointed to your website, "chapter 9 - Queen Alice"
in Through the Looking Glass. That is to say:
http://www.alice-in-wonderland.net/books/2chpt9.html

In the paragraph beginning with "`Ridiculous!' cried the Queen.", it is written
"What right have you to all yourself so?"

My suggestion is to change in 2chpt9.html this question by:
"What right have you to call yourself so?"

I supplied two other links so you can choose if Lewis Carroll really wrote "all" or "call".
You can consult also your own book(s) of Through the Looking Glass.

The other suggestion was about the syntax of the quote
according to the different editions of the Chapter 9.

Did Lewis Carroll really write an English single quote or a French double quote?
`If you really are a Queen"?
or
"If you really are a Queen"?

Allright, now I get it :-)

I'll look into it, thanks for the suggestions!
