"Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" is a tale in which the subordinate actors are quite as excellent in their way as the leading ch...aracter. They are differentiated from each other by a variation in their personalities, rather than by an inequality in their ability to entertain. Creatures are they of a vagrant fancy, which, like a rushing mountain stream, ofttimes reflects distorted images, but is ever pure, with the sunlight glancing from its bosom. But, like the rapid-flowing brook, there are placid pools in its course, and in one crystal, reposeful spot is the face of Alice. " Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" is a book which appeals alike to young and old. It is an object-lesson that tends to make us realize the truth of the adage, "Men are but boys grown tall." read more
This Prestwick House Literary Touchstone Edition™ includes a glossary and reader’s notes to help the modern reader contend with Le...wis Carroll’s language, themes, and symbols. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, first published in 1865, is usually thought of as a simple fantasy tale for children, enjoyable for its fun and whimsy. Through the years, though, the book has grown to become one of the most popular novels in literature, both for children and adults. Deeper than mere fantasy, Alice is a text rich in symbolism, satire, and thematic levels of meaning. The rigid and often nonsensical society filled with odd situations, incomprehensible rules, and unforgettable characters that Carroll allows us to enter is one that readers will fondly remember for the rest of their lives. read more
On a drowsy afternoon by a riverbank, a young and distracted Alice follows a rabbit into a fantastical underground world that grow...s curiouser and curiouser. Dared, insulted, amused, and threatened by a succession of anthropomorphic creatures, the indomitable Alice falls deeper into a swirl of the imagination where logic has no place.Referenced, resourced, analyzed, and embraced since its publication in 1865, Carroll’s masterpiece of the irrational has inspired such varied artists as Walt Disney, Marilyn Manson, Jerome Kern, James Joyce, and Tim Burton. It stands as one of the most extravagantly and ingeniously absurd works in the English language.Revised edition: Previously published as Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, this edition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions. read more
One of the English language's most popular and frequently quoted books, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland was the creation of Charl...es Lutwidge Dodgson (1832–1898), a distinguished scholar and mathematician who wrote under the pseudonym of Lewis Carroll. Intended for young readers but enjoyed equally by adults, the fantastic tale transformed children's literature, liberating it from didactic constraints.The story is deeply but gently satiric, enlivened with an imaginative plot and brilliant use of nonsense. As Alice explores a bizarre underground world, she encounters a cast of strange characters and fanciful beasts: the White Rabbit, March Hare, and Mad Hatter; the sleepy Dormouse and grinning Cheshire Cat; the Mock Turtle, the dreadful Queen of Hearts, and a host of other extraordinary personalities. This edition features Sir John Tenniel's complete original illustrations, bringing to life a beloved classic that has delighted readers and listeners since its first publication in 1865. read more

The poem at the start o the beuk narrates that the three lassies wis wantin a story aff o Dodgson an, tho no juist eident at first, he startit tae tell the first mak o the story tae them. Many a reference, hauf-scoukit, is made tae the five o them ootthrou the text o the beuk itsel, that wis syne an on published in 1865. This beuk sets oot the first translation o "Ailice's Àventurs in Wunnerland" intae Scots (that we aince caa'd "Inglis"). This leid haes cam doun fae Auld Northumbrian, the Auld English that wis spoken fae the Humber tae the Lothians. It's a near relation o Staunart English, but there's many a differ in baith grammar an vocabulary. The translator haes uised tradeetional spellins the likes o wis set doun bi Burns, Scott, Slater an many ither, tho wantin the "apologetic apostrophes" ye aft see in thae beuks.

Dodgson began the story on 4 July 1862, when he took a journey in a rowing boat on the river Thames in Oxford together with the Reverend Robinson Duckworth, with Alice Liddell (ten years of age), the daughter of the Dean of Christ Church, and with her two sisters, Lorina (thirteen years of age), and Edith (eight years of age). As is clear from the poem at the beginning of the book, the three girls asked Dodgson for a story and reluctantly at first he began to tell the first version of the story to them. Many half-hidden references are made to the five of them throughout the text of the book itself, which was published finally in 1865. This edition presents the first translation of "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" into Scots (which historically has also been known as "Inglis"). This language is a descendant of Old Northumbrian, the Old English once spoken from the Humber to the Lothians. It is closely related to Standard English, but differs from it in many particulars of both grammar and vocabulary. The translator has used traditional spellings such as might be seen in the works of Burns, Scott, Slater, and many others, though without the "apologetic apostrophes" often seen in these works. This is in harmony with most writings in Scots from the eighteenth century onwards, and makes for comfortable reading for modern Scots speakers brought up with those traditions. read more
Lewis Carroll is a pen-name: Charles Lutwidge Dodgson was the author's real name and he was lecturer in Mathematics in Christ Chur...ch, Oxford.

There are many half-hidden references made to the five of them throughout the text of the book itself, which was published finally in 1865. The North-East dialect of Scots, locally called the "Doric", has a long and distinguished history as the medium of one of the liveliest and most individual local literatures in Scotland. It first emerged in literary form during the Vernacular Revival of the eighteenth century; an outstanding practitioner of the mid-nineteenth century was Lewis Carroll's friend George MacDonald, who, though his lasting renown is mainly founded on his children's books and fantasy stories, wrote many domestic novels set wholly or partly in his North-Eastern calf-ground, in which the dialect is skilfully presented. In translating Alice, Derrick McClure has endeavoured to find some kind of counterpart for every literary and linguistic trick in the original: that is an ambitious aim, but any translation above the level of a mere crib is a tribute to its source, and an original of such ingenuity as this book deserves the highest tribute possible, in a translation which pays full attention to all the clever and delightful tricks with which Carroll adorned his text. It is the author's hope that the translation will be read not simply as a linguistic curiosity or a test case for some of the problems of literary translation, but as a not unworthy addition to the corpus of Doric literature and Scots children's writing. read more
Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the river bank, and of having nothing to do...when suddenly a Wh...ite Rabbit with pink eyes ran by her. Alice did not think it so very strange to hear the Rabbit say to itself, "Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be too late!" But when the Rabbit actually took a watch out of its waistcoat pocket and then hurried on, she started to wonder! Running after the strange fellow, she was just in time to see it pop down a large rabbit-hole. Down jumped Alice after it (never considering how in the world she was to get out again) and she tumbled into a curious world inhabited by the Mad Hatter, the Ugly Duchess, the Mock Turtle, the Cheshire Cat, and more…With his marvelous sense of the absurd, Lewis Carroll’s whimsical, fantastical tale delighted children and adults when it was first published in 1865 and has since become a treasured classic of literature. read more
"Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do: once or twice she had pe...eped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in it, 'and what is the use of a book,' thought Alice 'without pictures or conversation?' "So she was considering in her own mind (as well as she could, for the hot day made her feel very sleepy and stupid), whether the pleasure of making a daisy-chain would be worth the trouble of getting up and picking the daisies, when suddenly a White Rabbit with pink eyes ran close by her." And so begins one of the most beloved and influential fantasies of the modern age. The author weaves dreamscapes, extraordinary characters, logic and whimsy into a tapestry of masterful storytelling that will enchant children and adults alike. read more

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is an 1865 novel written by English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Car...roll.It tells of a girl named Alice who falls down a rabbit hole into a fantasy world (Wonderland) populated by peculiar, anthropomorphic creatures. The tale plays with logic, giving the story lasting popularity with adults as well as children. It is considered to be one of the best examples of the literary nonsense genre, and its narrative course and structure have been enormously influential,especially in the fantasy genre. [Background] Alice was published in 1865, three years after the Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson and the Reverend Robinson Duckworth rowed in a boat, on 4 July 1862, up the Isis with the three young daughters of Henry Liddell, (the Vice-Chancellor of Oxford University and Dean of Christ Church) : Lorina Charlotte Liddell (aged 13, born 1849) ("Prima" in the book's prefatory verse); Alice Pleasance Liddell (aged 10, born 1852) ("Secunda" in the prefatory verse); Edith Mary Liddell (aged 8, born 1853) ("Tertia" in the prefatory verse). The journey began at Folly Bridge near Oxford and ended five miles away in the village of Godstow. During the trip the Reverend Dodgson told the girls a story that featured a bored little girl named Alice who goes looking for an adventure. The girls loved it, and Alice Liddell asked Dodgson to write it down for her. He began writing the manuscript of the story the next day, although that earliest version no longer exists. The girls and Dodgson took another boat trip a month later when he elaborated the plot to the story of Alice, and in November he began working on the manuscript in earnest. To add the finishing touches he researched natural history for the animals presented in the book, and then had the book examined by other children--particularly the MacDonald children. He added his own illustrations but approached John Tenniel to illustrate the book for publication, telling him that the story had been well liked by children. On 26 November 1864 he gave Alice the handwritten manuscript of Alice's Adventures Under Ground, with illustrations by Dodgson himself, dedicating it as "A Christmas Gift to a Dear Child in Memory of a Summer's Day". Some, including Martin Gardner, speculate there was an earlier version that was destroyed later by Dodgson when he printed a more elaborate copy by hand. But before Alice received her copy, Dodgson was already preparing it for publication and expanding the 15,500-word original to 27,500 words, most notably adding the episodes about the Cheshire Cat and the Mad Tea-Party. read more

The "calculated pandemonium" of the splendidly irrational kingdom of Wonderland is what Barry Moser set out to capture in illustra...ting the Lewis Carroll classic.In his seventy-five wood engravings, Moser depicts with consummate invention, wit, and skill the quite exceptional inhabitants and sights of Wonderland-the March Hare, the Queen of Hearts, the Cheshire Cat's grin-as reviewed through Alice's eyes. The result is startlingly original. (Alice herself, a mischievous tousle-haired brunette, is a far cry from the prim Alice of earlier artists.) read more
