Carroll Lewis
Down the Rabbi Hole: Fantasy-Dream or Nightmare
-1832-1898
-Darwin dethroned man, judge-christ image that humans are created from man, Bible
word of God, but Victorians started to ask questions, started debating accepted thought

-after Darwin theory, Victorians started to question the Bible
-social life was affected and hierarchies changed

-Karl Marxx, who recognized this working class and noticed the shock that was
happening to the social system once Darwin’s theory became prevalent
-optimism turned into uncertainty and fear
-pollution became a great disease (idea that the Victorian childhood is a reaction to this
reality, this uncertainty associated with a rapid/unchanging world
-they saw childhood/adulthood as a linear progression: “childhood is an image of man
-Victorians had the issue of smog of pollution crowding this romantic period, they
wanted to create barriers between childhood and adulthood, to build a wall: a separation
of two worlds
-it was the idea of “nastaltia” is the great barrier from adult adjustment to
childhood, a certain regression, denial of responsibility, a means of separation which we
refused to believe
-nastaltia made things simplar, for the child
Lewis Carroll saw childhood as a “bright summer day”, and as the child ages this
summer day” becomes darker. As we read Alice we see this change from happy
childhood of innocence to slow adulthood
-he saw childhood as the perfect, idol time before bad and difficult and unnecessary
adulthood

cheerful with kids
-Alice was the daughter of the Oxford president
-he was a formal professor, heart of intellectual ideal, he was 1 of 11 children, he liked
puppets, built puppets and puzzles
-for half a century he studied at Oxford, he had a stammer in his speech, but never had a
stutter when talking to children
-he was snobbish to those of lower rank, he was shy in social gatherings
-his stutter and shyness left when he was with children
