Mark Richards: Lewis Carroll and Surrealism: exploring the Wonderland of the unconscious mind
In the 19th Century, Lewis Carroll explored the themes of dreams, unconscious thoughts and madness just as the Surrealists did in the mid 20th Century. Might we, then, regard the Oxford clergyman who wrote the Alice books as, himself, a “surrealist” and to what extent were the poets, writers and painters of the group influenced or inspired by his work. Mark Richards, former chairman of The Lewis Carroll Society and executive editor of The Carrollian explores this thought-provoking subject in a very visual and lively presentation.
