Description - Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

This edition contains 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' and its sequel 'Through the Looking Glass'. It is illustrated throughout by Sir John Tenniel, whose drawings for the books add so much to the enjoyment of them. Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat, the Red Queen and the White Rabbit all make their appearances, and are now familiar figures in writing, conversation and idiom. So too, are Carroll's delightful verses such as 'The Walrus and the Carpenter' and the inspired jargon of that masterly Wordsworthian parody, 'The Jabberwocky'. AUTHOR: Charles Lutwidge (27 January 1832 14 January 1898), better known by the pen name Lewis Carroll was an English author, mathematician, logician, Anglican 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, and beyond this his work has become embedded deeply in modern culture, directly influencing many artists.
