Alice's Misadventures Undergroundby Bradley E. Craddock
Inspired by an angel to become a famous writer, Swanson (1830-1865) devoted his entire life to that pursuit. An adjunct professor of English
Hidden away for more than 130 years in an attic, the most important literary scandal of the twenty-first century has been unearthed: the previously unpublished works of infamous Victorian author, Lewis C. Swanson.
Inspired by an angel to become a famous writer, Swanson (1830-1865) devoted his entire life to that pursuit. An adjunct professor of English literature at Oxford University, he was a contemporary of children's author and mathematician, Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (aka Lewis Carroll). Scholars now contend that Swanson is the original author of Carroll's masterpiece, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. The tragic victim of Carroll's plagiarizing, Swanson committed literary suicide in 1865 and died in absolute obscurity.
Swanson finally earns his place in the annals of literature with this new English translation of the original story. Painstaking research has gone into annotating the lost manuscript, proving, once and for all, that Swanson was the original author of the famous work attributed to Carroll. This special edition includes a foreword from Miskatonic University professor Sebastian Edwards, and an introduction by eminent scholar Daniel E. B. Edwards.
Alice's Misadventures Underground tells the familiar story of a little girl who chases after a rabbit, only to find herself-lost in a dangerous wonderland of dubious learning.
