Re: I don't understand
- Maybe that's it. Maybe LC thought of 13, 14, & 15 adding to 42, and from that, two guineas. But then he may have decided that the Ides of March may have suggested Julius Caesar's murder, and that didn't quite fit in with the story.
. The Ides of March is around the time of the full moon, when madness is in the air, and also a time to be wary of persons carrying sharp instruments like knives or axes.
- A copy of ‘Through the Looking Glass’ was bought on ebay this week. Dated 1872 it sold for £42!These coincidences keep on cropping up in LC land. Probably should look at all the Alice books that didn’t sell for £42!Keith
- All,Lewis Carroll is creating a lot of interest in Liverpool. The Tate exhibition has not lived up to expectations but The Liverpool Academy of Arts exhibition was excellent. Now we have a university project on way for the summer. Fitting perhaps as LC was born 180 years ago not far from Liverpool in the village of Daresbury where the new LC room will be opened in March.Best wishes for 2012 to all,Keith
