John Kendrick Bangs, Charles Raymond MacAuley Rollo in Emblemland. A Tale Inspired by Lewis Carroll's Wonderland


John Kendrick Bangs (1862–1922) was born in Yonkers, New York, and is known for his work as an author, editor, and satirist. He worked for "Life", a number of "Harper’s" periodicals, and "Puck", perhaps the foremost American humour magazine of its day. Inspired by the fantasy of Lewis Carroll’s "Alice", Bangs wrote "Rollo in Emblemland" together with Charles Raymond Macauley in 1902. The story tells of a young boy named Rollo who visits a strange country peopled with symbols and icons—emblems of culture like John Bull, Uncle Sam, the Owl, the?Stork, Puck, Mr Punch, Father Time, Cupid, and others. Macauley’s line drawings are charming and some of the verse in the book is reminiscent of Carroll’s.
