Author Info
Lewis Carroll
Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) was an Anglican deacon and a tutor in mathematics--his great love--at Oxford. All his life, he was fond of puzzles and word games, and he published several mathematical treatises. He was also an amateur photographer, specializing in portraits of children which, in the late 20th century, are considered somewhat ambiguous. His great works, ALICE IN WONDERLAND (1865) and THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS (1872) were written to amuse the daughters of a friend; Lewis Carroll himself, though he loved children, never produced any. Carroll's books are full of wonders, and are often quoted; perhaps the most famous quote is something the Red Queen says in THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS: "Now here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!"
Praise
"Seibold's obsessive inclusion of excessive graphic minutiae throughout his tableaus is what makes his ALICE totally engrossing and worth reading more than once."
From the Publisher
Annotation As he escorted the three young daughters of a colleague on a trip up the river Isis, Lewis Carroll invented ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND, the story of a little girl who tumbles down a rabbit hole. Full of such wonderfully eccentric characters as the Queen of Hearts, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the Cheshire Cat, the Mock Turtle, and the Mad Hatter, the book is simultaneously a political allegory, a parody of Victorian children's literature, a fairy tale, a dream, and a child's chronicle of growing up.
Annotation 1 Lewis Carroll's already twisted tale of Alice's strange adventures gets wrenched a little further in this edition featuring the "cute-esque" (that's cute and grotesque) illustrations of punk artist Camille Rose Garcia, whose acknowledged influences include Walt Disney, Philip K. Dick, Henry Darger and the Dead Kennedys. Garcia's version of Alice is a vision of sinister innocence, complete with black eyeliner and lipstick, and a perpetual aura composed of the spirals of her golden curls and apron strings.
First Line 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 peeped 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, "with no pictures or conversations?"
Editors Note Famed for his illustrations of such classics as Rime of the Ancient Mariner and The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, Willy Pogány created striking drawings for Alice's Adventures in Wonderland in 1929. This splendid edition features numerous black-and-white images that offer a fresh accompaniment in the classic 20th-century style to a treasured tale. A selection of the Common Core State Standards Initiative.
Editors Note 4 Alice falls down a rabbit hole and discovers a world of nonsensical and amusing characters.
