(1929) The Lady In The Looking Glass: A Reflection and Alice in Wonderland: Through The Looking Glass (1871)
After reading this story the first thing that came into my mind was the second book about alice in wonderland. This story it’s all about reflections. In the story by Virginia Woolf, it
describes the images reflected in a mirror situated in a woman’s dressing room, providing a glimpse of the furnishings of her life. It makes you feel she is in a parallel world and there is when the comparison with the movie goes. Alice Through the Looking Glass tells the tale of Alice who enters a parallel universe where the common sense laws that she had grown to take for granted no longer apply. She strives with admirable patience and persistence to achieve new understandings but is constrained as much as she is enlightened by her efforts to reconcile new experiences with her old world view. Also the two protagonists are women which fight with difficulties in their lives. This two stories also have in common that nothing makes sense, everything is confusing and it is complicated to interpret. Everyone has their own interpretation. What I found rare about this two stories is that they were published
with a lot of difference of years, and they have lot of resemblance.
