Book Short Summary:

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.

Book Short Summary:

'"Curiouser and curiouser!" cried Alice (she was so surprised, that for the moment she quite forgot how to speak good English). "Now I'm opening out like the largest telescope that ever was! Goodbye, feet!"' 'I had sent my heroine straight down a rabbit-hole ... without the least idea what was to happen afterwards,' wrote Lewis Carroll, describing how Alice was conjured up one 'golden afternoon' in 1862 to entertain his child-friend Alice Liddell. His dream worlds of nonsensical Wonderland and the back-to-front Looking Glass kingdom depict order turned upside-down: a baby turns into a pig, time is abandoned at a disorderly tea-party and a chaotic game of chess makes a seven-year-old girl a Queen. But amongst the anarchic humour and sparkling word play, puzzles and riddles, are poignant moments of nostalgia for lost childhood.

Book Short Summary:

In 1865, English author CHARLES LUTWIDGE DODGSON (1832-1898), aka Lewis Carroll, wrote a fantastical adventure story for the young daughters of a friend. The adventures of Alice-named for one of the little girls to whom the book was dedicated-who journeys down a rabbit hole and into a whimsical underworld realm, instantly struck a chord with the British public, and then with readers around the world. Dodgson's playfulness-with language, with mathematical puzzles, with testy creatures such as the White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter and the Queen of Hearts-still confounds and teases lovers of fantasy fiction today. Alice acolytes continue to unravel the book's strange riddles, and constantly find new meaning in the unexpected underlying themes, from the trials of early adolescence to the value of nonsense. The conundrums and delights of Alice ensures its ongoing influence over modern pop culture. This unabridged replica edition features the original illustrations by English artist SIR JOHN TENNIEL (1820-1914), and is a treasured addition to any library.

Book Short Summary:

Alice in Wonderland The bestseller book of Adventure Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland LEWIS CARROLL“So many out-of-the-way things had happened lately, that Alice had begun to think that very few things indeed were really impossible.” When Alice catches a glimpse of a smartly-dressed talking rabbit on the riverbank, she follows him into a rabbit hole, tumbling down after him into a deeply bizarre subterranean world inhabited entirely by anthropomorphic beings. As she wanders through these strange new lands trying to get back home, she encounters a varied cast of characters, from the mischievous Cheshire Cat to the quite possibly insane Mad Hatter, to the wise, hookah-smoking Caterpillar, and they are all just as curious about her as she is about them. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland explores themes of growing up, mortality, and curiosity through the unique, innocent perspective of a child. Lewis Carroll, born Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, was a 19th-century English scholar, mathematician, and author. He was most famous for his novel Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and later its sequel, Through the Looking Glass, both of which forever changed the landscape of Victorian literature and remain beloved staples of children’s literature to this day.

Book Short Summary:

Essay from the year 2019 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1,3, University of Iceland (Faculty of Humanities), course: Transformations of Classical Children’s Books, language: English, abstract: Lewis Carroll’s "Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland" is one of the great pioneering figures of nonsense fantasy and undoubtedly a classic of Victorian children’s and youth literature. To this day, the story fascinates not only young people, but also adult readers. One reason for the long-lasting success is the complexity of Alice, which allows viewing the plot from various perspectives, such as political, philosophical and even logical or physical perspectives. Therefore, it is not surprising that Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland after first being published in 1865, has never been out of print (cf. “What’s so wonderful about Alice?”). Another reason for this success of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is the language used and its humorous effect. The novel is embedded with both obvious and hidden wordplays, neologisms, syllogisms, well-known poems, nursery rhymes of the time and the assumption that word meanings can be chosen arbitrarily.

Book Short Summary:

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.

Book Short Summary:

This is the original version of "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" with Carroll's own original illustrations and John Tenniel's original illustrations. It was hand-written by Lewis Carroll for Alice Liddell between 1862 and 1864. The tale was first told by Carroll on 4 July 1862 to the three young daughters of Henry Liddell, Dean of Christ Church, Oxford, on a river boat trip. At Christmas 1886, the manuscript was published in a facsimile edition. This edition is certainly well worth reading, although it is shorter than the final form of the story-the later "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" being about twice the length of the original "Alice's Adventures under Ground". Lewis Carroll (1832 – 1898), was an English author, mathematician, logician, Anglican deacon and photographer.

The books play at the heart of logical problems and literary nonsense – giving the narrative lasting popularity with adults and children alike. Originally published in 1929, this edition of the 'Alice in Wonderland' story is accompanied by the stunning artwork of George Soper. Soper (1870 - 1942), was an etcher and painter, widely known for his rustic scenes and lively animals.
