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.

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.

This gorgeous 150th anniversary edition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is also a revelatory work of scholarship. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland--published 150 years ago in 1865--is a book many of us love and feel we know well. But it turns out we have only scratched the surface. Scholar David Day has spent many years down the rabbit hole of this children's classic and has emerged with a revelatory new view of its contents. What we have here, he brilliantly and persuasively argues, is a complete classical education in coded form--Carroll's gift to his "wonder child" Alice Liddell. In two continuous commentaries, woven around the complete text of the novel for ease of cross-reference on every page, David Day reveals the many layers of teaching, concealed by manipulation of language, that are carried so lightly in the beguiling form of a fairy tale. These layers relate directly to Carroll's interest in philosophy, history, mathematics, classics, poetry, spiritualism and even to his love of music--both sacred and profane. His novel is a memory palace, given to Alice as the great gift of an education. It was delivered in coded form because in that age, it was a gift no girl would be permitted to receive in any other way. Day also shows how a large number of the characters in the book are based on real Victorians. Wonderland, he shows, is a veritable "Who's Who" of Oxford at the height of its power and influence in the Victorian Age. There is so much to be found behind the imaginary characters and creatures that inhabit the pages of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. David Day's warm, witty and brilliantly insightful guide--beautifully designed and stunningly illustrated throughout in full colour--will make you marvel at the book as never before.

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.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (commonly shortened to “Alice in Wonderland”) is an 1865 novel written by English author Charles Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll. Dodgson transposed his mother’s maiden name for a first name and then used the French equivalent of his first name, Carroll, as a last name. Indeed, this edition, illustrated by the great Arthur Rackham, is considered to be the definitive edition of the story influencing the look and feel of “Alice” films and stage plays alike, and it is this edition that so many think of and refer to when discussing this wonderful story. Herein are the original 12 chapters richly illustrated with 13 full-page colour plates and 13 black and white pen and ink drawings. In addition, each chapter commences with an illuminated drop capital making for a wonderfully sumptuous edition. The story tells of a young girl named Alice falling through a rabbit hole into a world of fantasy populated by peculiar, anthropomorphic creatures. The tale plays with logic, which has given the story a lasting popularity with adults and children alike. It is considered to be one of the best examples in 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. The twelve chapters are: I. DOWN THE RABBIT-HOLE II. THE POOL OF TEARS III. A CAUCUS-RACE AND A LONG TALE IV. THE RABBIT SENDS IN A LITTLE BILL V. ADVICE FROM A CATERPILLAR VI. PIG AND PEPPER VII. A MAD TEA-PARTY VIII. THE QUEEN'S CROQUET-GROUND IX. THE MOCK TURTLE'S STORY X. THE LOBSTER QUADRILLE XI. WHO STOLE THE TARTS? XII. ALICE'S EVIDENCE ================ HISTORICAL NOTE In the 150+ years since Lewis Carroll first told the story of Wonderland to the real-life Alice, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland has attracted a number of stunning visual interpretations ranging from Salvador Dalí to Yayoi Kusama, but none more influential than those Arthur Rackham (September 19, 1867–September 6, 1939) created in 1907. Indeed, the Rackham edition is considered to be the definitive edition of the story influencing the look and feel of “Alice” films and stage plays alike, and it is this edition that so many think of and refer to when discussing this wonderful story. ============== KEYWORDS/TAGS: Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, folklore, fairy tales, myths and legends, fantasy, anthropomorphic, animals, , Alice, angry, Ann, anxious, appear, asleep, baby, Beau—ootiful, Beautiful, Bill, book, read-and-butter, breath, Caterpillar, cats, Cheshire Cat, children, children’s story, children’s books, chimney, creatures, croquet, curiosity, dance, dead, Dinah, Dodo, Dormouse, dream, Duchess, English, evidence, executioner, faces, fancy, fetch, finger, First, flamingo, Footman, game, garden, gloves, golden, Gryphon, guinea-pigs, Hare, Queen of Hearts, hedgehog, hookah pipe, hurry, jury, King, Knave, Lizard, lobsters, Lory, Mad Hatter, Majesty, March, Mary, melancholy, Mock Turtle, moral, Mouse, opportunity, pardon, party, Pigeon, players, pocket, puppy, puzzle, Queen, queer, strange, school, serpent, shriek, Soo—oop, Soup, stupid, twinkle, William, wonder land, youth, parents with children, parents to be, mothers to be, mothers with children, fables, bedtime stories, classic illustrations, fantasy art, fantastic, sumptuous, opulent, art,

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.

"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).
