E-BOOK EXCERPT

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'.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

'But I don't want to go among mad people,' Alice remarked. 'Oh, you can't help that,' said the Cat. 'We're all mad here.' The 'Alice' books are two of the most translated, most quoted, and best-known books in the world, but what exactly are they? Apparently delightful, innocent fantasies for children, they are also complex textures of mathematical, linguistic, and philosophical jokes. Alice's encounters with the White Rabbit, the Cheshire-Cat, the King and Queen of Hearts, the Mad Hatter, Tweedledum and Tweedledee and many other extraordinary characters have made them masterpieces of carefree nonsense, yet they also appeal to adults on a quite different level. Layers of satire, allusion, and symbolism about Victorian culture and politics, as well as revelations about the intricate subconscious problems of their author, add to their fascination and make them impossible to classify. This new edition explores the phenomenal range of reference, and the paradoxical appeal of two of the most inventive books in world literature. It also includes an episode removed by Carroll from the proofs of Through the Looking-Glass, called 'The Wasp in a Wig'. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is often a fairy tale written by the English mathematician, poet and writer Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll and published in 1865. It tells about a girl named Alice, who falls through a rabbit hole into an imaginary world inhabited by strange anthropomorphic creatures. The fairy tale enjoys steady popularity both in children and adults. The book is considered one of the best examples of literature in the genre of the absurd; it uses numerous mathematical, linguistic and philosophical jokes and allusions. The course of the narrative and its structure had a strong influence on art, especially on the genre of fantasy. "Alice in the Looking Glass" is a plot continuation of the work.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

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.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

"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).
