Alice in Guantánamo: Reading Carroll in the Gitmo Age. Guantánamo’s non-sense draws comparisons to Kafka and Orwell, but to me the touchstone is Lewis Carroll. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, which had its 150th anniversary on November 26, and Through the Looking Glass capture the ambitious inversions of Gitmo, where the iguanas that skitter out of the jungled camps enjoy more legal protection than the men inside
"Jabberwocky" 'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves Did gyre and gimble in the wabe; All mimsy were the borogoves, And the mome raths outgrabe.
Through The Illustrated Looking Glass: Chapter 7 ~ The Lion And The Unicorn: `You alarm me!' said the King. `I feel faint -- Give me a ham sandwich!' On which the Messenger, to Alice's great amusement, opened a bag that hung round his neck, and handed a sandwich to the King, who devoured it greedily. `Another sandwich!' said the King. `There's nothing but hay left now,' the Messenger said, peeping into the bag. `Hay, then,' the King murmured in a faint whisper.
