Description - Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
The FLAME TREE COLLECTABLE CLASSICS are chosen to create a delightful and timeless home library. Each stunning edition features deluxe cover treatments, ribbon markers, luxury endpapers and gilded edges. The unabridged text is accompanied by a Glossary of Victorian and Literary terms produced for the modern reader. Containing both Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass this new edition brings together the classic tales to offer the full story of Alice, the Red Queen, the mad Hatter and the incredible cast of characters created by mathematician and king of nonsense verse Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. Beloved characters whirl through a world of talking creatures, disappearing cats and madcap peculiarity told with swift economy by a writer whose influence on modern fantasy is often overlooked. Much filmed (including Tim Burton's award winning Alice in Wonderland), animated and republished Dodgson's work is a wildly entertaining ride for children, but packed with symbols and satire for the adult reader too. AUTHOR: Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, best known by his pen name, Lewis Carroll, was born in the village of Daresbury, in England in 1832. The eldest boy of 11 children, Carroll excelled in mathematics and won many prizes. At age 20, he was awarded a place at Christ Church College, Oxford University. An accomplished Victorian he was a lecturer in mathematics, a photographer, an essayist, pamphleteer and poet.
