Overview

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, first published in 1865, is usually thought of as a simple fantasy tale for children, enjoyable for its fun and whimsy. Through the years, though, the book has grown to become one of the most popular novels in literature, both for children and adults. Deeper than mere fantasy, Alice is a text rich in symbolism, satire, and thematic levels of meaning. The rigid and often nonsensical society filled with odd situations, incomprehensible rules, and unforgettable characters that Carroll allows us to enter is one that readers will fondly remember for the rest of their lives.

This Prestwick House Literary Touchstone Edition includes a glossary and reader's notes to help the modern reader contend with Lewis Carroll's language, themes, and symbols.
