Eva Le Gallienne's stage adaptation of the Alice books premiered on 12 December 1932 and ended its run in May 1933. He wrote numerous stories and poems for children including the nonsense poem The Hunting of the Snark and fairy stories Sylvie and Bruno. As the book and its sequel are Carroll's most widely recognised works, they have also inspired numerous live performances, including plays, operas, ballets, and traditional English pantomimes. The basic premise is the narrator going along on his normal life, but he falls into an "eerie" state (akin to the place between being awake and dreaming) that he encounters fairy children. Includes such stories as - Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Through the Looking-Glass, Sylvie and Bruno, Sylvie and Bruno Concluded, The Hunting of the Snark and the poetry, essays and phantasmagoria along with a collection of the author's miscellaneous writings.

And Alice's conversation with Humpty Dumpty, and how he translates some of the words in the first poem is fun.Characters from the book are depicted on the stained glass windows of Carroll's hometown church, All Saints', in Daresbury, Cheshire.

However, when the Queen demands that Alice be beheaded, Alice realizes that the characters are only a pack of cards, and she then awakens from her dream. The themes presented in Through the Looking-Glass are very similar to those in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, which explains why they are so frequently sold together. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass are exactly as I remembered the films.They are the epitome of what my "dream library" will contain; breath-taking editions of the classics and masterpieces. I had to take a lot of breaks for this book, since it was just a book I read to fill the time in between other books. Nilson plausibly suggests that Alice's missing ablative is a pun on her father Henry Liddell's work on the standard A Greek-English Lexicon since ancient Greek does not have an ablative case. For a true book lover, the appeal and visual presentation of the book is just right (the stories within contain the original illustrations by celebrated John Tenniel). Though this collection holds far more than just the well-known Alice in Wonderland stories, those were my favourites.

The Queen eventually commands Alice's beheading, but Alice scoffs that the Queen's guard is only a pack of cards.Also included are the original, iconic illustrations by John Tenniel and an introduction by Lori Campbell. Attempting to extract her, The White Rabbit and his neighbors eventually take to hurling pebbles that turn into small cakes. This book made me better understand why when people think Lewis Carroll, they think "drugged-out crazy dude. The book includes a behind-the-scenes journey, including an author profile, a guide to who’s who, activities and more.

Carroll, an amateur photographer by the late 1850s, [18] produced many photographic portraits of the Liddell children—but none more than Alice, of whom 20 survive. According to Gillian Beer, Carroll's play with language evokes the feeling of words for new readers: they "still have insecure edges and a nimbus of nonsense blurs the sharp focus of terms". The Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, better known by the pen name Lewis Carroll, was an English author, mathematician, logician, Anglican clergyman and photographer.

It's well done that way - like when you're having a dream and a pink elephant walks in, you just accept it and start up a conversation. I like the fact that it has a mix of fiction and non-fiction activities … and how material can link to other areas of the curriculum, not just literacy. It inspired numerous films, theatrical performances, and ballets as well as countless works of scholarly analysis. This is a used book - there is no escaping the fact it has been read by someone else and it will show signs of wear and previous use. Scholars debate whether Carroll in fact came up with Alice during the "golden afternoon" or whether the story was developed over a longer period.
