    1 thought on “The Westminster Alice”

    1. This is the second satire based on the characters that Lewis Carroll created in the Wonderland books that I have read, and I have to admit I'm a bit dissapointed. I like Saki, he was a good short story writer, so I was expecting something better. I laughed at a some of the jokes, a few may even be relevant today, but I didn't really get most of the humor. It seems to be written so straight into the British political landscape around 1900 that one needs more historical knowledge than I have to pr [...]

    2. 2½ stars. While I enjoy Saki's humor, this policital satire parodying Alice in Wonderland was too dated to be funny. I did enjoy the illustrations.

    3. Very quick and interesting read. It's a series of short satires about British government using characters from Alice In Wonderland. Interesting view of the early 1900's

    4. I can't rate this one, as I have absolutely no knowledge of the political context it was written in. It didn't make sense for me to read the book in the first place, really.

    5. Ruth Golding reading for Librivox = 5 starsLibrivox being free audio recordings read & posted online by volunteers = 5 starsAlmost everything by Saki = 5 starsThe premise = 5 starsMy ability to follow most of this parody based on my knowledge of the politics of his time = 1 star My ability to apply some of the satire to politics in general = 2 starsBut I'll bet that when these little parodies showed up in the Westminster Gazette, people followed them with anticipation and relish.

    6. * 1000 novels everyone must read: the definitive listSelected by the Guardian's Review team and a panel of expert judges, this list includes only novels – no memoirs, no short stories, no long poems – from any decade and in any language. Originally published in thematic supplements – love, crime, comedy, family and self, state of the nation, science fiction and fantasy, war and travel – they appear here for the first time in a single list.

    7. Qué se puede decir de SAKI? Poco, es un maestro del relato corto, y en esta joyita lo vuelve a hacer, relatos basados en los cuentos de Alicia en el país de las maravillas con los que se sirve para satirizar e ironizar la clase política inglesa de principios de siglo XX. Deliciosos, y la edición, ejemplar. Una buena lectura.

    8. Unless you are heavily into British politics circa 1900, this doesn't make a whole lot of sense, unfortunately.

    9. Mycket underfundig humor och bra satir tycker jag, fastän jag inte kände igen gubbarna på teckningarna.

    10. All the other comments are correct--the humor is very specific to Saki's political era; all I can tell is that it was probably very funny back thenbut nowRead his other stuff!
