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 who falls down 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.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.Lewis Carroll"s first appearance of Alice"s Adventures in Wonderland was a much shorter work titled Alice"s Adventures Under Ground. Although the final product is well known for John Tenniel"s memorable illustrations, Carroll himself illustrated his original manuscript. In fact, many of Tenniel"s illustrations were actually based on Carroll"s own. Carroll gave the original, handwritten manuscript to Alice Liddell, the girl for whom his heroine was named.

Through the Looking - Glass by Lewis Carroll. This 1872 sequel to Lewis Carroll's beloved Alice's Adventures in Wonderland finds the inquisitive heroine in a fantastic land where everything is reversed. Looking-glass land, a topsy-turvy world lurking just behind the mirror over Alice's mantel, is a fantastic realm of live chessmen, madcap kings and queens, strange mythological creatures, talking flowers and puddings, and rude insects. Brooks and hedges divide the lush greenery of looking-glass land into a chessboard, where Alice becomes a pawn in a bizarre game of chess involving Humpty Dumpty, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the Lion and the Unicorn, the White Knight, and other nursery-rhyme figures. Promised a crown when she reaches the eighth square, Alice perseveres through a surreal landscape of amusing characters that pelt her with riddles and humorous semantic quibbles and regale her with memorable poetry, including the oft-quoted "Jabberwocky." This handsome, inexpensive edition, makes available to today's readers a classic of juvenile literature long cherished for its humor, whimsy, and incomparable fantasy.

It tells of a girl named Alice falling through a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by peculiar, anthropomorphic creatures.

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.

Extrait : "Cette fois elle trouva sur la table une petite bouteille (qui certes n'était pas là tout à l'heure). Au cou de cette petite bouteille était attachée une étiquette en papier, avec ces mots « BUVEZ-MOI » admirablement imprimés en grosses lettres. C'est bien facile à dire « Buvez-moi, » mais Alice était trop fine pour obéir à l'aveuglette."

IN OFFERTA LANCIO! EDIZIONE REVISIONATA 17/12/2018. Immagini dalla 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.
