Re: [Foucault-L] Alice in Wonderland

I don't think I saw any reference to the Alice books in The History of
Sexuality. Are you sure you're not thinking of Deleuze's The Logic of
Sense? Alice figures prominently in there and what's more, Foucault
wrote a lengthy essay on it (and Difference and Repetition). Possibly
Alice got a mention there?
