Falling off his horse
Sir John Tenniel
Wood-engraving by Dalziel
Illustration for the eighth chapter of Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking Glass (1865)
"Whenever the horse stopped (which indeed very often), [The Knight] fell off in front; and, whenever it went on again (which it generally did rather suddenly), he fell off behind."
Follow for a discussion of this passage and a comparison of it to another famous Victorian work in which a young girl helps an older man who has fallen off his horse.
