Summary
"Ms. Blake views the whole of Carroll's imaginative writing in the light of play, through the card game, the croquet match, the chessboard, and the hunt...Combining sound psychological insight and keen literary analysis, Ms. Blake offers a new...approach to the writings of Lewis Carroll, while at the same time shedding light on the Victorian age"--Cover
