Sometimes it’s hard for me to write posts about the books I am reading without giving too much away. Of course I want to share my thoughts on them, but I don’t want to spoil it for the potential readers who are following along at home. So, with that, I wanted to say that I’ve moved on to the second section of The House on Fortune Street and, without going into too much detail, the English literary element at the heart of this portion is Charles Dodgson, better known by his pen name of Lewis Carroll. He is the man responsible for Alice in Wonderland.
So far, I’ve really enjoyed how these references to literature have been so interwoven into the plot. In one article I read, the author Margot Livesey called them “literary godparents” who in some way influence the characters’ lives. I love that terminology.
Like Dodgson, the main character of this section has a thing for photography. That made me curious about Dodgson’s photos. And I assume what I’m curious about you are all curious about as well, so I’ve chosen a few to share here.
All photos come from this site, and no, I do not own them.
