SUMMARY
One of the most popular and most quoted books in English, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland was the creation of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832–1898), a distinguished scholar, mathematician, and author who wrote under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll. Written for young readers but enjoyed equally by adults, the wonderfully fantastic tale is credited with revolutionizing children's literature and liberating it from didactic constraints. The story is deeply but gently satiric, enlivened with an imaginative plot and brilliant use of nonsense, as it relates Alice's adventures in a bizarre, topsy-turvy land underground. There she encounters a cast of strange characters and fanciful beasts, including the White Rabbit, March Hare, Mad Hatter, the sleepy Dormouse and grinning Cheshire Cat, the Mock Turtle, the dreadful Queen of Hearts, and a host of other unusual creatures. A selection of the Common Core State Standards Initiative.
AUTHOR BIO
Charles Lutwidge Dodgson wurde 1832 in Daresbury, Cheshire geboren. Er studierte Mathematik, Theologie und Klassische Literatur in Oxford und arbeitete bis 1881 als Dozent für Mathematik. Für seine literarischen Publikationen wählte er ab 1856 das Pseudonym Lewis Carroll. Auf einem Bootsausflug 1862 erzählte er den Töchtern eines Freundes die Geschichte von Alices Abenteuern im Wunderland, die er anschließend niederschrieb und 1865 erstmals veröffentlichte. Der Roman wurde ein großer Erfolg und zählt heute zu den bedeutendsten Werken der englischen Literatur. Der Autor starb 1898 in Guildford, Surrey.

Carroll's book is episodic and reveals more in the situations that it contrives than in any serious attempt at plot or character analysis. Like a series of nonsense poems or stories created more for their puzzling nature or illogical delightfulness, the events of Alice's adventure are her encounters with incredible but immensely likable characters. Carroll was a master of toying with the eccentricities of language. One feels that Carroll is never more at home than when he is playing, punning, or otherwise messing around with the English tongue. Although the book has been interpreted in numerous ways, from an allegory of semiotics theory to a drug-fueled hallucination, perhaps it is this playfulness that has ensured its success over the last century. The book is brilliant for children, but with enough hilarity and joy for life in it to please adults too, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is a lovely book with which to take a brief respite from our overly rational and sometimes dreary world.

It is classic children's book that is also popular with adults. Personally,I found the book strange and uninteresting. However if I was 8-14 I would have loved the fantastic fantasy world Carroll creates. I never expected the events that happened because they were bizarre and unpredictable. I loved the Cheshire cat's wit and intelligence. I also love the hatter because his eccentric personality reminded me of the eccentric people I know. My favorite part was when Alice met the caterpillar, this was because of his ambiguous conversation with Alice. However, I thought the events were sometimes random and didn't always connect. I also disliked the number of characters, this is because sometimes I found it uninteresting and sometimes it meant that I didn't have the development of scenes I wanted. I believe that it is a clever book that I world have preferred when I was younger because now I have a different taste in books. Carroll has depicted a unique world that I hadn't seen before. This why I believe it is a book that I would recommend.
