Falling off his horse
Sir John Tenniel
Wood-engraving by Dalziel
Illustration for the eighth chapter of Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking Glass (1871)
"Whenever the horse stopped (which it did very often), [The Knight] fell off in front; and, whenever it went on again (which it generally did rather suddenly), he fell off behind."
See below for a commentary on this illustration, and a link to a comparison with another famous Victorian work, in which an older man has fallen off his horse. [Mouse over the text for links.]
