Alice in Blunderland: an Iridescent Dream

John Kendrick Bangs (1862 - 1922)

From Alice in Blunderland:
"Certain of our members claim that they have a right to sell their votes for $500 apiece--"

"Mercy!" cried Alice, "Why, that is--that is terrible."

"It certainly is," said the March Hare ruefully, it's rotten. Here I've been holding out for $1,250 for mine, and these duffers want to go in for a cut rate that will absolutely ruin the business."

John Kendrick Bangs takes Carroll's Alice in Wonderland and turns it into a political satire in many ways as fresh, keen and relevant today as it was a hundred years ago. (Summary by Ruth Golding)
