Abstract

THE ARTICLE DEALS WITH THE CONTROVERSIAL NOTION OF TIME GIVEN BY THE MOST PECULIAR VICTORIAN WRITER, LEWIS CARROLL. IN HIS LAST NOVEL, 'SYLIVE AND BRUNO' (1889), HE GIVES ONE OF THE FIRST EXAMPLES OF TIME REVERSAL NARRATIVES, A TOPOS WHICH WILL LATER TURN INTO ONE OF THE MOST USED IN SCIENCE FICTION GENRE. THE VICTORIAN TIME REVERSALS WITNESS A SHIFTING PERSPECTIVE IN VICTORIAN EPISTEMOLOGY AN IT IS SIGNIFICANTLY TRUE THAT IT WAS IN THE TEXTUAL UPSIDE DOWN SPACE OF VICTORIAN ROMANCE, AS OPPOSED TO THE REALISTIC SURFACE OF THE NOVEL, THAT THE CULTURAL PERSPECTIVE WAS OVERTURNED, PAVING THE WAY TO MODERNISM.
