Happy Birthday Charles Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) and Readings week of Feb 1 and 3

Charles Dodgson would be 180 years old today, so I thought I’d post this photo from a site about Alice cakes. Just for fun, here’s a post from the Lewis Carroll Society examining Alice as one of the most popular tattoo designs. Now that is not a form of literary adaptation that we discussed today! Speaking of those adaptations, those of you planning to write your first paper* on an adaptation of either Alice or Peter Pan should remind themselves to email me with their choice (this is to ensure that we can both view the adaptation properly). Here’s the youtube video of the first film adaptation of Carroll’s work, the 1903 short we watched in class today: Alice in Wonderland (1903).
Readings:
Feb. 1- Alice in Wonderland
Mad Hatter Tea Party (wear a funny hat and you may also bring a snack to share; we’ll discuss the history of Victorian tea parties and watch Svankmajer’s post-modern Alice film adaptation)
Feb.  3- Reading Quiz**
The Hobbit

*Don’t forget that Paper 1 is due on Feb. 10.

** As we discussed in class today, I will drop the lowest of your eight quiz marks; however, if you haven’t already started in on The Hobbit, please do so. It is the densest and longest text we will read this semester and will be on your midterm along with A Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula K. LeGuin.
