Contrariwise thinks the ‘Carroll Myth’ has things to say, not just about Lewis Carroll himself, but about wider questions of ‘truth’ in literature, biography and history. It’s about how we make our realities, and the sometimes insane or dubious means used to defend them. It’s about whether myths can ever be defeated, or even if they should be defeated. Do we need to make myths? Is that why we create them and seem to cling to them so insanely? Or is that just a romantic way of giving ourselves permission to keep telling ourselves massive lies about our human past and present, and other people’s lives? We’ll be talking about all of that here from time to time, as well as keeping up to date on all things Carroll.
