Collecting Alice"s complete adventures, a source of delight to children and adults alike for generations, the Penguin Classics edition of Lewis Carroll"s Alice"s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass is edited with an introduction and notes by Hugh Haughton. Conjured up one "golden afternoon" in 1862 to entertain Alice Liddell, the daughter of the dean of Carroll"s college, the dream worlds of nonsensical Wonderland and back-to-front Looking-Glass kingdom depict order turned upside-down. Following the white rabbit into his warren, Alice falls into a world where croquet is played with hedgehogs and flamingos, a baby turns into a pig, time runs amok at a the Mad Hatter"s tea-party, a chaotic game of chess makes Alice a Queen and the Mock Turtle and Gryphon dance the Lobster Quadrille. But amongst the anarchic humour and sparkling wordplay, unforgettable characters, puzzles and riddles, are poignant moments of nostalgia for a lost childhood. Original and experimental, adapted into countless film and television versions as Alice in Wonderland, the Alice books give readers a window on both child and adult worlds. This is the most comprehensively annotated edition available and includes the manuscript version of Alice"s Adventures Under Ground and Carroll"s 1887 essay ""Alice" on the stage". Lewis Carroll (1832-1898) was the pen-name of the Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. Educated at Rugby School and Christ Church, Oxford, Carroll was appointed lecturer in mathematics in 1855, where he spent the rest of his life. In 1861 he took deacon"s orders, but shyness and a constitutional stammer prevented him from seeking the priesthood. If you enjoyed Alice"s Adventures in Wonderland you might like Mikhail Bulgakov"s The Master and Margarita, also available in Penguin Classics. "A work of glorious intelligence and literary devices ... nonsense becomes a form of higher sense"Malcolm Bradbury.

SOLIDARIETA" DIGITALE : tutto il nostro catalogo in promozione! EDIZIONE REVISIONATA 04/07/2019. Replica della prima edizione del 1865 con disegni originali di John Tenniel. In un "meriggio dorato" del 1862, come ricordato all"inizio del libro, Lewis Carroll si trovava in barca con un amico, la piccola Alice e le sue due sorelle, e per far divertire le bambine inventò una storia fantastica. Alice lo pregò di metterla per iscritto e il racconto fu pubblicato nel 1865 con il titolo "Le avventure di Alice nel paese delle meraviglie". Vi si narrano le vicende di una bimba di nome Alice, che nel giorno del suo settimo compleanno, seguendo un coniglio bianco con giacca e panciotto, precipita in un magico mondo sotterraneo, dove vive strabilianti avventure e incontra bizzarri personaggi, tra assurdità e paradossi di ogni tipo. Gli stravaganti protagonisti del romanzo non sono però così distanti dalla realtà, in quanto offrono una carrellata dei difetti e delle manie del genere umano, e numerosi sono i riferimenti a personaggi e avvenimenti dell"epoca. In tutta l"opera abbondano inoltre giochi linguistici e matematici, citazioni, nonsense e figure retoriche, che fanno di Alice nel paese delle meraviglie un capolavoro di originalità, da oltre 150 anni letto e tradotto in tutto il mondo.

ALICE"S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND (commonly shortened to Alice in Wonderland) is an 1865 novel written by English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll. It tells of a girl named Alice falling through a rabbit hole into 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 and structure, characters and imagery have been enormously influential in both popular culture and literature, especially in the fantasy genre. Dodgson"s tale was published in 1865 as Alice"s Adventures in Wonderland by "Lewis Carroll" with illustrations by John Tenniel. The first print run of 2,000 was held back because Tenniel objected to the print quality. A new edition was quickly printed, released in December of the same year but carrying an 1866 date. The entire print run sold out quickly. Alice was a publishing sensation, beloved by children and adults alike. Among its first avid readers were Queen Victoria and the young Oscar Wilde. The book has never been out of print. Alice"s Adventures in Wonderland has been translated into at least 174 languages. There have now been over a hundred English-language editions of the book, as well as countless adaptations in other media, especially theatre and film.

Through the Looking Glass

Weary of her storybook, one "without pictures or conversations," the young and imaginative Alice follows a hasty hare underground--to come face-to-face with some of the strangest adventures and most fantastic characters in all of literature. The Ugly Duchess, the Mad Hatter, the weeping Mock Turtle, the diabolical Queen of Hearts, the Cheshire Cat--each more eccentric than the last--could only have come from that master of sublime nonsense, Lewis Carroll. In penning this brilliant burlesque of children"s literature, Carroll has written a farcical satire of rigid Victorian society, an arresting parody of the fears, anxieties, and complexities of growing up. Carroll was one of the few adult writers to successfully enter the children"s world of make-believe: where the impossible becomes possible, the unreal--real, and where the height of adventure is limited only by the depths of imagination.
