Sylvie and Bruno Concluded

Lewis Carroll

Book Overview: 

Sylvie and Bruno Concluded continues the adventures of the many characters in the previous volume Sylvie and Bruno. The fairy-children Sylvie and Bruno are charming whenever they appear, their fairy companions such as the Professor delight in taking ideas to their logical (and humorous) conclusions, and many nonsense songs are sung. Meanwhile, the mortals (comprised of the unnamed narrator, the gracious Lady Muriel and the sententious Arthur) tend to become the vehicles for Carroll's regular sermons on morality and proper Christian values.

Book Excerpt: 
. . .Yes, I know it,” she said in a broken voice, still keeping her head turned away. “And so I told him. He said he would believe, for my 30 sake, if he could. And he wished, for my sake, he could see things as I did. But that is all wrong!” she went on passionately. “God cannot approve such low motives as that! Still it was not I that broke it off. I knew he loved me; and I had promised; and——”

“Then it was he that broke it off?”

“He released me unconditionally.” She faced me again now, having quite recovered her usual calmness of manner.

“Then what difficulty remains?”

“It is this, that I don’t believe he did it of his own free will. Now, supposing he did it against his will, merely to satisfy my scruples, would not his claim on me remain just as strong as ever? And would not my promise be as binding as ever? My father says ‘no’; but I ca&. . . Read More

If you thought Sylvie and Bruno ended a little abruptly, you thought correctly. In this sequel, Carroll brings closure to his characters and their plotlines, from the unhappy Dr. Forester to sweet-natured Sylvie (and even Prince Uggug). I found it to be a little less humorous than book 1, but still

If you haven't read the first one.... do NOT bother. & if you have read Sylvie and Bruno 1, well, don't bother either.

I think I've had a fine time reading the four novels Carroll produced. This one continues the tale of the mystical children/fairies, and the main character, after 50 chapters (25 for

In most aspects, the second Sylvie and Bruno book is a lot like the first. The narrator still flashes in and out between the two worlds, there are occasional poems mixed in, and there is entirely too much time spent on philosophical and ethical musings.

Both book are mixed bags, alternating betwee

This nonsensical sensical classic opens up by alluring the reader to a place of guessing as if this were the first volume of 'Sylvie and Bruno.' For those endowed of the gift of a great and spiritual imagination such as during this second volume of the adventures of the two, author Lewis Carroll (pe

One of my favorite Lewis Carroll passages is to be found in this undeservedly forgotten book. If you don't already know what Black Light is, read on:"Our Second Experiment", the Professor announced, as Bruno returned to his place, still thoughtfully rubbing his elbows, "is the production of that sel

A very strange book, with everything from cutesy-pie fairy children to mass deaths in a nearby village. The illustrations are lovely and there are some amusing sections, such as the Professor's lecture and the humans' dinner party, but overall I still find the whole concept a mess.

It isn't a child'

Луис Карол е един от най-големите класици на детската литература, а неговата Алиса е сред най-разпознаваемите и обичани персонажи и до ден днешен не е престанала да интригува малки и големи читатели и да се радва на всевъзможни интерпретации и адаптации. Не зная дали е логично или странно, че остана

It is no surprise that the Sylvie and Bruno stories aren't among Lewis Carroll's most famous, but I wasn't disappointed by them. Their balance between reality and fantasy is weighted much more heavily toward reality than are the Alice books, but fortunately that doesn't stifle Carroll's flair for si

A wonderful story. Sometimes a bit hard to follow until you get used to switching back and forth between reality and the "eerie" states where Sylvie, Bruno, and the rest reside. Christian overtones are present, but not so overbearing that one can't take a general lesson or two from them. It's quite
