Mr. Toad, Wolf Larsen, Heidi, Phileas Fogg, Ichabod, Sherlock, Anne, Alice, Tweedledum, Tweedledee,
Jacob Marley, Dr. Moreau, Long John Silver: in what ways do such literary characters and their
distant cousins endure? How were these classics in dialogue with other canonical works? Were
authors like Wilde and Eliot--in texts like The Selfish Giant or Old Possum's Book of Practical

"public imagination?" How can we engage critical, historical, linguistic, or dialectical analyses
