In this study of Mervyn Peake's illustrations for Lewis Carroll's Alice, the author explores the ways in which a twentieth-century artist adds his own particular dynamic to stories written in the nineteenth century. There are particular references to Peake's personality, life experiences and interests as well as his fluctuating health, all of which undoubtedly influenced his artistic output. Some comparisons are made between Peake's and John Tenniel's interpretations of the characters, both human and anthropomorphic, in the stories. The author concludes that the stories are open to many interpretations, and that Peake, in adding something of himself, provides the reader with fresh perspectives on them.
