I’m having an Alice binge at the moment and decided i needed to go back to the very beginning of the story to see how it came about.
This book is great, not just having the original story, but also letters to and from the author at the time. A very enlightening piece of literary history which puts the whole Alice and Wonderland thing into a somewhat disturbing perspective which i’ll let everyone else make their own minds up about.
Anyway, disturbance aside, i can’t change history, so i’m going to continue the journey and get straight into ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’, which is the re-written and added to edition for public consumption of this original which was written purely for Alice Liddell by Charles Dodgson (aka Lewis Carroll).
Definitely something all adults should go back and read – and maybe learn not to take things too seriously, or at least, at face value.
Here be some more ‘Alice and Wonderland’ books.
