CHAPTER 1. LESS BREAD! MORE TAXES!

—and then all the people cheered again, and one man, who was more excited than the rest, flung his hat high into the air, and shouted (as well as I could make out) "Who roar for the Sub-Warden?" Everybody roared, but whether it was for the Sub-Warden, or not, did not clearly appear: some were shouting "Bread!" and some "Taxes!", but no one seemed to know what it was they really wanted.
All this I saw from the open window of the Warden's breakfast-saloon, looking across the shoulder of the Lord Chancellor, who had sprung to his feet the moment the shouting began, almost as if he had been expecting it, and had rushed to the window which commanded the best view of the market-place.
"What can it all mean?" he kept repeating to himself, as, with his hands clasped behind him, and his gown floating in the air, he paced rapidly up and down the room. "I never heard such shouting before—and at this time of the morning, too! And with such unanimity! Doesn't it strike you as very remarkable?"
I represented, modestly, that to my ears it appeared that they were shouting for different things, but the Chancellor would not listen to my suggestion for a moment. "They all shout the same words, I assure you!" he said: then, leaning well out of the window, he whispered to a man who was standing close underneath, "Keep'em together, ca'n't you? The Warden will be here directly. Give'em the signal for the march up!" All this was evidently not meant for my ears, but I could scarcely help hearing it, considering that my chin was almost on the Chancellor's shoulder.

Di carattere assai timido, C. fu grande amico (e fotografo) di alcune bambine, e per una di esse, Alice Liddell, scrisse Alice nel paese delle meraviglie (Alice’s adventures in Wonderland, 1865). Quest’opera, la più nota e amata della letteratura infantile inglese, ha esercitato una forte attrazione anche sui lettori adulti per il peculiare gusto del gioco logico e verbale. Alle avventure di Alice C. diede un seguito con Attraverso lo specchio (Through the looking-glass, 1871), che ebbe un successo quasi altrettanto vasto. I personaggi, che nell’opera... Approfondisci
