This edition contains 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' and its sequel 'Through the Looking Glass'. It is illustrated throughout by Sir John Tenniel, whose drawings for the books add so much to the enjoyment of them. Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat, the Red Queen and the White Rabbit all make their appearances, and are now familiar figures in writing, conversation and idiom. So too, are Carroll's delightful verses such as 'The Walrus and the Carpenter' and the inspired jargon of that masterly Wordsworthian parody, 'The Jabberwocky'. AUTHOR: Charles Lutwidge (27 January 1832 - 14 January 1898), better known by the pen name Lewis Carroll was an English author, mathematician, logician, Anglican and photographer. His most famous writings are 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' and its sequel 'Through the Looking Glass' as well as the poems 'The Hunting of the Snark' and 'jabberwocky', all considered to be within the genre of literary nonsense. His facility at word play, logic, and fantasy has delighted audiences ranging from children to the literary elite, and beyond this his work has become embedded deeply in modern culture, directly influencing many artists.

Byatt Illustrations by John Tenniel Includes commissioned endnotes Conceived by a shy British don on a golden afternoon to entertain ten-year-old Alice Liddell and her sisters, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass have delighted generations of readers in more than eighty languages. “The clue to the enduring fascination and greatness of the Alice books,” writes A. S. Byatt in her Introduction, “lies in language. It is play, and word-play, and its endless intriguing puzzles continue to reveal themselves long after we have ceased to be children.” Includes a Modern Library Reading Group Guide

Two of the world's most popular children's books, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1864) and Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There (1871) by Lewis Carroll (Charles Lutwidge Dodgson), are also the favorites of adults, who find profound observations in their delightful "nonsense." Carroll's education as a minister and a mathematician influenced his creation of stories that play upon common notions of wisdom, logic and reality. His humorous prose and verse fashion a world in which the familiar and expected are suddenly turned upside down. In her dream journeys Alice encounters fanciful creatures and situations--the Queen of Hearts, the Mad Hatter, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the Cheshire Cat, a tea party where it is always six o'clock--that challenge her assumptions about how the world is ordered, or whether it is ordered at all. Alice is in turn delighted and discouraged by the reversal of familiar rules in the places she visits; she is intrigued to meet such wondrous characters as live chessmen and yet confused about her own place in a world inhabited by usually inanimate objects. Generations of readers have been as entertained and puzzled as Alice herself when trying to understand Wonderland and the world behind the looking-glass. Donald Rackin's study of Carroll's masterpieces examines how, in addition to being classic works of entertainment and imagination, the Alice books address issues that concerned mid-Victorians on the brink of the modern era. Alice, a character representative of the assumptions, fears, and desires of her time, encounters a fast-paced, confusing, and disorderly world where rules do not apply, where inanimate objects come alive, and where everyone seems to be rushing but going nowhere. In many ways, the worlds Alice encounters are exaggerated versions of the evolving modern society that many Victorians feared. In chapters that explore the historical context, critical reception and interpretation of the Alice books, Rackin demonstrates how Carroll used fantasy and "nonsense" to mirror the frightening reality of a world transformed by mechanization, changing class relations, capitalism, and religious doubt. Rackin's study illuminates the texts by revealing how they are essentially concerned with the modern search for meaning in a rapidly changing and seemingly "mad" world, providing perspective on how these "nonsense" books explore fears and desires that are common to many generations. Rackin's study, the first book-length analysis of these works is over 50 years, will be welcomed by students and scholars of Victorian literature and culture.

This eBook edition has been formatted to the highest digital standards and adjusted for readability on all devices. "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" – Alice, a girl of seven years, is feeling bored and drowsy while sitting on the riverbank with her elder sister. She then notices a talking, clothed White Rabbit with a pocket watch run past. She follows it down a rabbit hole when suddenly she falls a long way to a curious hall with many locked doors of all sizes and gets stuck in a fantasy world populated by peculiar, anthropomorphic creatures. The tale plays with logic, giving the story lasting popularity with adults as well as with children. It is considered to be one of the best examples of the literary nonsense genre. Its narrative course, structure, characters, and imagery have been enormously influential in both popular culture and literature, especially in the fantasy genre. "Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There" – Alice again enters a fantastical world, this time by climbing through a mirror into the world that she can see beyond it. There she finds that, just like a reflection, everything is reversed, including logic (running helps you remain stationary, walking away from something brings you towards it, chessmen are alive, nursery rhyme characters exist, etc).

Emerging in several different versions during the author's lifetime, Lewis Carroll's Alice novels have a publishing history almost as magical and mysterious as the stories themselves. Zoe Jaques and Eugene Giddens offer a detailed and nuanced account of the initial publication of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass and investigate how their subsequent transformations through print, illustration, film, song, music videos, and even stamp-cases and biscuit tins affected the reception of these childhood favourites. The authors consider issues related to the orality of the original tale and its impact on subsequent transmission, the differences between the manuscripts and printed editions, and the politics of writing and publishing for children in the 1860s. In addition, they take account of Carroll's own responses to the books' popularity, including his writing of major adaptations and a significant body of meta-textual commentary, and his reactions to the staging of Alice in Wonderland. Attentive to the child reader, how changing notions of childhood identity and needs affected shifting narratives of the story, and the representation of the child's body by various illustrators, the authors also make a significant contribution to childhood studies.

Elissa Bradley journeys through Wonderland grappling with theoretical issues and drawing on prior research in this engaging analysis.She examines the perspective that through the nonsense of the Alice books Lewis Carroll mirrors and mocks nineteenth century norms and values. Take a peek Through the Looking Glass as Elissa discovers the truth behind the melancholy music that is the White Knight s song, experiences confusion over the Mad Hatter s riddle, looks at why Havilland Chepmell's "Short Course of History" is described by a mouse as being the driest thing I know, finds reason behind the rudeness of the Wonderland creatures, attempts to makes sense of Humpty Dumpty s strange philosophy of language and learns the secret of the Jabberwocky poem!! During her debate of the added dimension to the Alice stories, Elissa speculates on how Carroll s personal life influenced the beliefs and accusations that are implied throughout this text of nonsense, in an attempt to understand not only the deeper meaning within, but also Carroll s arrival at such meaning. So take advice from the Caterpillar and: '"Come [with me ]!...I ve got something important to say!" - This sounded promising, certainly.'

First published in 1865, Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland was an immediate success, as was its sequel, Through the Looking-Glass. Carroll’s sense of the absurd and his amazing gift for games of logic and language have secured for the Alice books an enduring spot in the hearts of both adults and children. Alice begins her adventures when she follows the frantically delayed White Rabbit down a hole into the magical world of Wonderland, where she meets a variety of wonderful creatures, including Tweedledee and Tweedledum, the Cheshire Cat, the hookah-smoking Caterpillar, the Mad Hatter, and the Queen of Hearts—who, with the help of her enchanted deck of playing cards, tricks Alice into playing a bizarre game of croquet. Alice continues her adventures in Through the Looking-Glass, which is loosely based on a game of chess and includes Carroll’s famous poem “Jabberwocky.” Throughout her fantastic journeys, Alice retains her reason, humor, and sense of justice. She has become one of the great characters of imaginative literature, as immortal as Don Quixote, Huckleberry Finn, Captain Ahab, Sherlock Holmes, and Dorothy Gale of Kansas.

In the most renowned novel by English author Lewis Carroll, restless young Alice literally stumbles into adventure when she follows the hurried, time-obsessed White Rabbit down a hole and into a fantastical realm where animals are quite verbose, logic is in short supply, and royalty tends to be exceedingly unpleasant. Each playfully engaging chapter presents absurd scenarios involving an unforgettable cast of characters, including the grinning Cheshire Cat and the short-tempered Queen of Hearts, and every stop on Alice's peculiar journey is marked by sharp social satire and wondrously witty wordplay.
