Lewis Carroll Books Overview
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
By falling down a rabbit hole, Alice experiences unusual adventures with a variety of nonsensical characters. /Content /EditorialReview EditorialReview Source Amazon. com Review /Source Content Source of legend and lyric, reference and conjecture, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is for most children pure pleasure in prose. While adults try to decipher Lewis Carroll’s putative use of complex mathematical codes in the text, or debate his alleged use of opium, young readers simply dive with Alice through the rabbit hole, pursuing ‘The dream child moving through a land / Of wonders wild and new.’ There they encounter the White Rabbit, the Queen of Hearts, the Mock Turtle, and the Mad Hatter, among a multitude of other characters extinct, fantastical, and commonplace creatures. Alice journeys through this Wonderland, trying to fathom the meaning of her strange experiences. But they turn out to be ‘curiouser and curiouser,’ seemingly without moral or sense.
For more than 130 years, children have reveled in the delightfully non moralistic, non educational virtues of this classic. In fact, at every turn, Alice’s new companions scoff at her traditional education. The Mock Turtle, for example, remarks that he took the ‘regular course’ in school: Reeling, Writhing, and branches of Arithmetic Ambition, Distraction, Uglification, and Derision. Carroll believed John Tenniel’s illustrations were as important as his text. Naturally, Carroll’s instincts were good; the masterful drawings are inextricably tied to the well loved story.

Alice’s Adventures Under Ground
Generations of readers have loved and embraced Lewis Carroll’s tale of the little girl who falls down a rabbit hole into a fantasy world of anthropomorphic creatures and absurd croquet matches, but how many can recount the history behind this famous story? It all began one golden July afternoon in Oxford in 1862, when the three Liddell siblings Lorina, Edith, and young Alice set out on a boating trip with two close friends of the family, Robinson Duckworth and Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. To keep the children amused, Dodgson spun a tale about an inquisitive young girl and her escapades in a magical underground world, eventually writing it down at his hero*ine Alice Liddell s request. The little book he produced, entitled Alice s Adventures under Ground, was beautifully bound in morocco leather, illustrated with 37 charming pictures, and given to Alice as an early Christmas present in November of 1864. Friends and fellow novelists who saw the volume urged Dodgson to publish the book formally, and literary history was made in 1865 when the first of countless best selling editions rolled off the press. In this superb facsimile edition of Dodgson s original manuscript, modern readers can at last enjoy the expressive script and vibrant illustrations of the original, one of the British Library s most prized possessions. Perfect for the literary collector, the lover of Alice, or the child at heart, this remarkable volume includes fascinating biographical commentary on Dodgson as well as a recounting of all the stages through which the manuscript passed. This journey produced a new tale itself, as the manuscript was revised, expanded, and illustrated by Punch cartoonist John Tenniel en route to final publication as Alice s Adventures in Wonderland, under Dodgson s celebrated pen name of Lewis Carroll.
Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There
Carroll’s classic stories reunited with Peake’s celebrated illustrations, restored for the first time to their original glory. In the 1940s, Gormenghast trilogy author Mervyn Peake was commissioned to produce a series of seventy pen and ink drawings to accompany Lewis Carroll’s two classics, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. Previously admired for his illustrations of Treasure Island and The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, Peake set to work, producing such luminous, eccentric images that Graham Greene would later refer to him as ‘the first artist since Tenniel to recast Alice in a contemporary mould.’ In these editions, Peake’s marvelous illustrations, many of them originally drawn on poor quality wartime paper, have been meticulously reproduced as they were meant to be seen. Thanks to a combination of old fashioned craft and cutting edge computer technology, the delightful images shine for the first time in over two decades alongside Carroll’s fantastically eccentric text. With introductions by modern literary masters Will Self and Zadie Smith, these beautifully designed and printed books are the perfect gift for adults and children alike. AUTHORBIO: Charles Lutwidge Dodgson 1832 98, a.k.a. Lewis Carroll, was a lecturer in Mathematics at Oxford University when he wrote Alice in Wonderland 1865 and Through the Looking Glass 1871. Mervyn Peake 1911 68 was an artist and writer. His illustration credits include Treasure Island, The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, and the Brothers Grimm’s Household Tales. As a novelist, he is best known for his Gormenghast trilogy.

Sylvie And Bruno
PREFACE. ONE little picture in this book, the Magic Locket, at p. 77, was drawn by ‘ Miss Alice Havers.’ I did not state this on the title-page, since it seemed only due, to the artist of all these to my mind ‘wonderful pictures, that his name should stand there alone. The descriptions, at pp. 386, 387, of Sunday as spent by children of the last generation, are quoted verbatim from a speech made to me by a child-friend and a letter written to me by a lady-friend. The Chapters, headed ‘ Fairy Sylvic ‘ and ‘ Bruno’s Revenge,’ are a reprint, with a few alterations, of a little fairy-tale which I wrote in the year 1867, at the request of the late Mrs. Gatty, for ‘ Aunt Judy’s Magazine,’ which she was then editing. It was in 1874, T believe, that the idea first occurred to me of making it the nucleus of a longer story. As the years went on, I jotted down, at odd moments, all sorts of odd ideas, and fragments of dialogue, that occurred to me-who knows how?-with a transitory

The Hunting of the Snark
‘The Hunting of the Snark‘ was first published in 1876, eleven years after ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’ and four years after ‘Through the Looking Glass’. It is a master piece of nonsense and is connected to ‘Through the Looking Glass’ by its use of vocabulary from the poem ‘Jabberwocky’. ‘The Hunting of the Snark‘ is a strangely dark poem, and some critics believe that its themes insanity and death are rather too adult in nature for children’s literature. We know, nonetheless, that Lewis Carroll intended the poem to be enjoyed by children: he dedicated the book in acrostic verse to his young friend Gertrude Chataway, and signed some 80 presentation copies to other young readers. Many of those inscriptions were in the form of an acrostic based upon the name of the child to whom the book was presented. Part of the pleasure of reading this book is in the inevitable musing about what it means. Its author, often asked to explain his work, invariably replies that he does not know. It is therefore open to readers of the poem to decide the question for themselves…

Phantasmagoria and Other Poems
Charles Lutwidge Dodgson 1832 1898, better known by the pen name Lewis Carroll, was an English author, mathematician, logician, Anglican clergyman and photographer. From a young age, Dodgson wrote poetry and short stories, sending them to various magazines and enjoying moderate success. Most of this output was humourous, sometimes satirical, but his standards and ambitions were exacting. His facility at word play, logic, and fantasy has delighted audiences ranging from children to the literary elite, and beyond this his work has become embedded deeply in modern culture, directly influencing many artists. His most famous writings are Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland 1865 and its sequel Through the Looking Glass 1871 as well as the poems The Hunting of the Snark 1876 and Jabberwocky 1871. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is a work of nonsense literature, which tells the story of a girl named Alice who falls down a rabbit hole into a fantasy realm populated by grotesque figures like talking playing cards and anthropomorphic creatures.

Euclid and His Modern Rivals
Euclid and His Modern Rivals is a deeply convincing testament to the Greek mathematician’s teachings of elementary geometry. Published in 1879, it is humorously constructed and written by Charles Dodgson better known outside the mathematical world as Lewis Carroll, the author of Alice in Wonderland in the form of an intentionally unscientific dramatic comedy. Dodgson, mathematical lecturer at Christ Church, Oxford, sets out to provide evidentiary support for the claim that The Manual of Euclid is essentially the defining and exclusive textbook to be used for teaching elementary geometry. Euclid’s sequence and numbering of propositions and his treatment of parallels, states Dodgson, make convincing arguments that the Greek scholar’s text stands alone in the field of mathematics. The author pointedly recognises the abundance of significant work in the field, but maintains that none of the subsequent manuals can effectively serve as substitutes to Euclid’s early teachings of elementary geometry.
