Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland
by Lewis Carroll
Lawn Gnome Publishing
Lewis Carroll’s ‘Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland’ was published in 1865 and is one of the most popular works of English fiction. Throughout the century, Wonderland takes readers into a surreal rabbit hole of creatures, proverbs, and singing flowers.
Especially relevant, Lawn Gnome Publishing republished Carroll’s book to remind a new generation that everything we perceive could be a dream.
Lewis Carroll grew up in a large family which enjoyed composing magazines and putting on plays. In 1855, Carroll lectured in mathematics. Thus, Carroll occupied a tower in the college for the rest of his life. In addition, he wrote many books on mathematics and logic. Also, he enjoyed inventing puzzles, games and playing croquet. Most notably, his love of paradox and nonsense led to the writing of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
He excelled in artfully staged photographs, many of children in costumes and others of friends, including Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Holman Hunt and Alfred Lord Tennyson.
