The Battle between the Red and White Knights
Sir John Tenniel
Wood-engraving by Dalziel
Illustration for the eighth chapter of Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking Glass (1865)
Using the analogy of chess playing, the author draws the parallel between the Rules of Battle of the Knights and the rules of Battle in chess playing. Can you think of other works of literature that use chess analogies?
