This Top Five Classics illustrated edition of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland includes: • The complete texts of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass • John Tenniel’s 92 original illustrations, including 35 in color • The Hunting of the Snark, with Henry Holiday’s 10 original illustrations • An informative introduction, author bio, and helpful notes Originally written and hand-drawn from 1862 to 1864 by Lewis Carroll (Charles Dodgson) for 10-year-old Alice Liddell, the daughter of Dodgson’s Oxford college dean, the manuscript “Alice’s Adventures Under Ground” would become, with the help of John Tenniel’s beautiful and humorous illustrations, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, published by Macmillan in 1865 in Britain and the U.S. The book, at turns silly and satiric, gentle and wild, would quickly become beloved around the world by children and adults, and spawn the classic sequel Through the Looking-Glass (1871) and the immortal nonsense poem The Hunting of the Snark (1876). The author, a shy mathematics professor called Charles Dodgson, would become internationally famous and ever after remembered by his pen name, Lewis Carroll. The books have never gone out of print and over nearly two centuries have spawned countless offshoots and adaptations—books, artwork, plays, games, and movies. This Top Five Classics edition of the fully illustrated Alice books presents the stories the way they were meant to be enjoyed.

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:

One and a half centuries: that's how long ago Lewis Carroll wrote Alice in Wonderland, a book which we all love to read and re-read. Since the nineteenth century until today, it has intrigued, enchanted and moved readers of all ages. It tells the tale of Alice, the little girl who falls down the rabbit hole into a place of fantasy, inhabited by weird creatures who resemble human beings. A nonsensical universe, filled with an absurd logic that feels like a dream world, in a narrative marked by parodies of children's poems popular in England at that time. There Alice goes on weird and absurd adventures, faces uncommon situations, meets extravagant beings, is asked enigmatic and illogical questions, grows and shrinks in size... And lives through it all unfazed and with a lot of curiosity.

Peter Pan and Tinker Bell whisk the children away to Neverland to join the Lost Boys in their epic struggle against the evil Captain Hook. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is the story that taught the world “there’s no place like home.” In a fairy tale so powerful that it seems every child is born knowing it, a tornado transports Dorothy Gale and her dog, Toto, from the flat prairies of Kansas to the marvelous Land of Oz.

Book Short Summary:

In the tradition of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, the WALLYPUG OF WHY is rich in nonsense and absurd situations and it humorously depicts life in late-Victorian times. The novel's protagonist, known only as Girlie, finds a letter written home by her youngest brother (known only as Boy). The letter protrudes slightly from its envelope, and Girlie is able to read the following: "I have found a goo." Rather than extract the letter from its envelope and read it completely, Girlie pauses to wonder what a "goo" might be — which leads to a chain of fantastic events. She visits the land of Why, the source of all questions and answers, where the Wallypug is supposedly the king. It is a topsy-turvy place: the Wallypug must address all the citizens as 'Your Majesty' and do what people tell him to do. Many of the residents are talking animals with curious habits and quirks of personality — including a "socialistic cockatoo." The original was illustrated by Harry Furniss, who had collaborated with Lewis Carroll on Sylvie and Bruno (1889) and Sylvie and Bruno Concluded (1893). Vignettes were provided Dorothy Furniss (1879–1944), Furniss’s 15-year-old daughter. 10% of the profit from the sale of this book will be donated to charities. Yesterday’s Books for Today’s Charities ====================== The Wallypug of Why was first published in 1895 and is a children's novel by G. E. Farrow. The book is an exercise in humorous nonsense, rich in wordplay and absurd situations - much in the tradition of Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. A popular success with children in its day, it inaugurated a series of “Adventures by the Wallypug.” This was Farrow's first book and it was well received by the reviewers who likened it to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, and was enthusiastically received by its child readers. The Wallypug of Why undeniably owes a great deal to Lewis Carroll. In the latter decades of the 19th century there were many Alice imitations, many of them very close to the original. Of these imitators Farrow is easily the best, and also the most prolific. The Wallypug is a genuinely original and endearing character, a "nervous little nonentity who in theory rules the land of Why, but in practice is ruled by his subjects whom he addresses as 'Your Majesty. Harry Furniss's drawings of the Wallypug with his crown tipped over one eye caught the character so well that other illustrators who worked on the Wallypug sequels copied the Furniss interpretation. ====================== TAGS: #Childrens_stories, #ChildrensBooks, #Folklore, #Fairy, #Folk, #Tales, #bedtime_story, #legends, #storyteller, #fables, #moral_tales, #myths, #happiness, #companions, #comrades, #Wallypug, #Majesty, #Olive, #bluedwarfs, #Esq, #Doctor-in-Law, #Auntie, #Cockatoo, #Kis-Smee, #Rex, #Oom, #Ho-Lor, #Sister-in-Law, #old, #poor, #horse, #Kangaroo, #palace, #Mi-Hy, #pretty, #strange, #shouted, #creatures, #shute, #color, #colour, #porter, #station-master, #afraid, #Crow, #forest, #Wallypugland, #Crocodile, #scream, #train, #Turtle, #village, #Blush, #Madame, #Pelican, #uncle, #Gra-Shus, #laugh, #carpet-bag, #crown, #Mike, #Olive, #bottle, #Ape, #bank, #beautiful, #fir cones, #Gombobble, #ridiculous, #aunt, #barrier, #bears, #book, #London, #bedroom, #bottom, #China, #fairies, #Oom-Hi, #Ough, #Will-o’-the-wisp, #Withdraw, #wives, #wretched looking, #Strange Welcome, #Terrible Night, #Late, #Breakfast, #Depose, #Foil, #Little_Blue_People, #Crown, #Wer-Har-Wei, #Railway, #Complexion

Book Short Summary:

Trick your brain into learning Italian words by pretending they’re newly-coined English words. We mix Italian words into the text of Lewis Carroll’s classic, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. By the time you finish the story, your brain will partly accept the Italian words as English synonyms. Then, when you come to read real Italian, it will look like it’s dotted with “English” words. In this book you’ll adopt the following into your English: a = to [direction] accanto a = next to aclune = some (fem.) alcuni = some (masc.) allora = then altra = other (fem.) altre = other (fem. pl) altri = other (masc. pl) altro = other (masc.) anche = too attraverso = through benché = though bene = well [then] bensì = but rather che = that che = than ciascuno = each come = like [similar] comunque = anyway con = with contro = against [position] così = so da quando = since [time] da = by dentro = inside, within di = than di = about [a topic] di = from di = of [possession] dopo = after dunque = therefore durante = during e = and eccetto = except ed = and (before “e” sound) entrambe = both (fem.) entrambi = both (masc.) eppure = yet fino a = as far as fino a = until fino a = up to fra = between gli = the (masc. pl) i = the (masc. pl) il = the (masc.) in ogni caso = anyhow incluso = including inoltre = also la = the (fem.) le = the (f pl) lo = the (m imp) l’ = the (before vowel) ma = but mai = never mentre = while molta = very (fem.) molto = very (masc.) nel caso = in case nonostante = despite né ... né ... = neither … nor … o = either o = or ogni = each oltretutto = besides per = for per = to [purpose] perché = because perciò = so pertanto = therefore però = but piuttosto che = rather than poiché = since [that] prima = before quindi = thus se = if sebbene = although secondo = according to sempre = always senza = without su = on tra = among tranne = except tutta = all of (fem.) tuttavia = however tutte = all (fem.) tutti = all (masc.) tutto = all of (masc.) un = a (masc.) una = a (fem.) uno = a (masc. before awkward sounds) un’ = a (fem. before vowel) verso = towards

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson—known better by his pseudonym, Lewis Carroll—was a 19th century English logician, mathematician, photographer, and novelist. He is especially remembered for his children’s tale Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel, Through the Looking Glass. By the time of Dodgson’s death in 1898, Alice (the integration of the two volumes) had become the most popular children’s book in England. By the time of his centenary in 1932, it was perhaps the most famous in the world. This book presents a complete catalogue of Dodgson’s personal library, with attention to every book the author is known to have owned or read. Alphabetized entries fully describe each book, its edition, its contents, its importance, and any particular relevance it might have had to Dodgson. The library not only provides a plethora of fodder for further study on Dodgson, but also reflects the Victorian world of the second half of the 19th century, a time of unprecedented investigation, experimentation, invention, and imagination. Dodgson’s volumes represent a vast array of academic interests from Victorian England and beyond, including homeopathic medicine, spiritualism, astrology, evolution, women's rights, children's literature, linguistics, theology, eugenics, and many others. The catalogue is designed for scholars seeking insight into the mind of Charles Dodgson through his books.

Book Short Summary:

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson is best known for his 'Alice' books, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass, written under his pen name of Lewis Carroll. Yet, whilst lauded for his work in children's fiction and his pioneering work in the world of Victorian photography, his everyday job was a lecturer in Mathematics at Christ Church, Oxford University. The Mathematical World of Charles L. Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) explores the academic background behind this complex individual, outlining his mathematical life, describing his writings in geometry, algebra, logic, the theory of voting, and recreational mathematics, before going on to discuss his mathematical legacy. This is the first academic work that collects the research on Dodgson's wide-ranging mathematical achievements into a single practical volume. Much material appears here for the first time, such as Dodgson's personal letters and drawings, as well as the results of recent investigations into the life and work of Dodgson. Complementing this are many illustrations, both historical and explanatory, as well as a full mathematical bibliography of Dodgson's mathematical publications.

Book Short Summary:

Meet the man who created Alice, the Mad Hatter, and Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum! Lewis Carroll is the pen name of Charles L. Dodgson, a mathematician and church deacon, who taught at Oxford University. He was inspired to write his best known works, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, by one of the Dean's daughters, Alice Liddell. The books were hugely successful and brought Carroll wide acclaim, especially for the nonsense poems "Jabberwocky" and The Hunting of the Snark. Children and adults continue to be delighted by the fantasy of the Alice stories, which have been the basis of plays and movies since their publication in Victorian England during the 1860s and 1870s.

Book Short Summary:

Evaluation is the linguistic expression of speaker/writer opinion, and has only recently become the focus of linguistic analysis. This book presents the first corpus-based account of evaluation; one hundred newspaper articles collated to form a 70,000 word comparable corpus, drawn from both tabloid and broadsheet media. The book provides detailed explanations and justifications of the underlying framework of evaluation, as well as demonstrating how this is part of the larger framework of media discourse. Unlike many other linguistic analyses of media language, it makes frequent reference to the production circumstances of newspaper discourse, in particular the so-called 'news values' that shape the creation of the news. Cutting-edge and insightful, Evaluation in Media Discourse will be of interest to academics and researchers in corpus linguistics and media discourse.

Book Short Summary:

First published in 1865, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland began as a story told to Alice Liddell and her two sisters on a boating trip in July 1862. The novel follows Alice down a rabbit-hole and into a world of strange and wonderful characters who constantly turn everything upside down with their mind-boggling logic, word play, and fantastic parodies. Like the first, this second edition includes Carroll’s earlier story Alice’s Adventures Under Ground, which allows readers to trace the revisions and to compare Carroll’s own illustrations in the original with the famous John Tenniel illustrations for Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. This edition also includes new appendix material: George MacDonald writing on the fantastic, the eighteenth-century children’s story Goody Two-Shoes, a section on film and television adaptations of Alice, and new illustrations.
