Format: Paperback
Like all of Manguel's works, "Into the Looking Glass Wood" is an intelligent and fascinating journey through history, personal stories and literary reflection. In it, he explores the connections and consequences between the world and the words we use to describe it. As a self-confessed bibliophile, Manguel's intricate knowledge of books, words, symbolism, and emotion shines through and his friendly style makes the book utterly engrossing. "Into the Looking Glass Wood" is a wonderful book, an exploration into the art of writing and more broadly the art of being human. I cannot recommend it strongly enough to anyone with an interest in literature, history, language, or semiotics. Thank you, Alberto.
