The Fish-Footman meets the Frog-Footman in Alice in Wonderland. Arnaud Dubois Arnaud Dubois
Il s'agit ici d'une interprétation très personnelle de la rencontre entre deux personnages du livre de Lewis Carroll, Alice au Pays des Merveilles.
J'ai choisi une entrevue entre les deux serviteurs dans le hall d'accueil d'un hôtel habité par le Chat du Cheshire, de la Chenille rencontrée par Alice et par la fameuse Duchesse du livre de Carroll.

«For a minute or two she stood looking at the house, and wondering what to do next, when suddenly a footman in livery came running out of the wood-- (she considered him to be a footman because he was in livery: otherwise, judging by his face only, she would have called him a fish)--and rapped loudly at the door with his knuckles. It was opened by another footman in livery, with a round face, and large eyes like a frog; and both footmen, Alice noticed, had powdered hair that curled all over their heads. She felt very curious to know what it was all about, and crept a little way out of the wood to listen.

The Fish-Footman began by producing from under his arm a great letter, nearly as large as himself, and this he handed over to the other, saying, in a solemn tone, `For the Duchess. An invitation from the Queen to play croquet. 'The Frog-Footman repeated, in the same solemn tone, only changing the order of the words a little, `From the Queen. An invitation for the Duchess to play croquet. 'Then they both bowed low, and their curls got entangled together. »
