A talk by Mark Richards

About

In the 19th Century, Lewis Carroll explored the themes of dreams, unconscious thoughts and madness just as the Surrealists did in the mid-20th Century. Might we, then, regard the Oxford clergyman who wrote the Alice books as, himself, a “surrealist” and to what extent were the poets, writers and painters of the group influenced or inspired by his work. Mark Richards explores this thought-provoking subject in a very visual and lively presentation, in celebration of the 150th anniversary of the first publication of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
