“Poor, poor, little Alice! She has not only been caught and made to do lessons; she has been forced to inflict lessons on others.” Alice is now not only a schoolgirl but a schoolmistress. The holiday is over and Dodgson is again a don. There will be lots and lots of examination papers, with questions like: (1) What do you know of the following: mime, mimble, haddock’s eyes, treacle-walls, beautiful soup? (2) Record all the moves in the chess game in Alice Through the Looking-Glass, and give diagram. (3) Outline the practical policy of the White Knight for dealing with the social problem of green whiskers. (4) Distinguish between Tweedledum and Tweedledee.
– G.K. Chesterton
