AS Byatt in the Looking Glass

AS Byatt has an interesting article on Alice in the Guardian as the film opens in the UK on March 5th. As she muses, she comes up with the idea that Alice and her other favourite childhood books are so popular because they encourage the reader to recreate themin their own mind.

The story of Alice is one that so many people have written stuff onto; hers is a body continually re-illustrated, re-written. I’m looking forward to seeing the Burton version of Alice as it is his version, not Carroll’s (which appears to confuse some).
