About the book:

While teaching in the English Oxford Summer Program Professor Bump became aware of intense student interest in the Alice books and has been teaching them ever since, as a guide to the college experience, ethics, diversity, etc. His students act out “Jabberwocky” and “The Mouse’s Tale” in many languages at the Harry Ransom Center and stage twenty performances of “The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party” for “Explore U.T.” every year.  Suggestions for discussion
