Sylvie and Bruno (English)


Lewis Carroll
In 1895, 30 years after publication of his masterpieces, Carroll attempted a comeback, producing a two-volume tale of the eponymous fairy siblings. Carroll entwines two plots, set in two alternate worlds: one set in rural England and the other in the fairytale kingdoms of Elfland, Outland and others. The latter world satirizes English society, and more specifically, the world of academia. Sylvie and Bruno came out in two volumes, and is considered a lesser work, although it has remained in print for over a century.
