Overview

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865) is a novel written by English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, better known under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll. It tells the story of a girl named Alice who falls down a rabbit-hole into a fantasy world populated by peculiar and anthropomorphic creatures.
The tale is filled with allusions to Dodgson's friends (and enemies), and to the lessons that British schoolchildren were expected to memorize. The tale plays with logic in ways that have made the story of lasting popularity with adults as well as children. It is considered to be one of the most characteristic examples of the genre of literary nonsense, and its narrative course and structure has been enormously influential, mainly in the fantasy genre.

Meet the Author

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (January 27, 1832 – January 14, 1898),
better known by the pen name Lewis Carroll, was an English author,
mathematician, logician, Anglican clergyman, and photographer. His
most famous writings are Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and its
sequel Through the Looking-Glass as well as the poems "The Hunting
of the Snark" and "Jabberwocky", all considered to be within the
genre of literary nonsense. His facility at word play, logic, and
fantasy has delighted audiences ranging from children to the
literary elite. But beyond this, his work has become embedded
deeply in modern culture. He has directly influenced many artists.
There are societies dedicated to the enjoyment and promotion of his
works and the investigation of his life in many parts of the world
including North America, Japan, the United Kingdom, and New
Zealand. His biography has recently come under much question as a
result of what some call the "Carroll Myth."
