Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

by Lewis Carroll


Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (commonly shortened to “Alice in Wonderland”) is an 1865 novel written by English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll.  It tells the story of a girl named Alice who falls down a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by peculiar and anthropomorphic creatures.

The story is full of allusions to Dodgson’s friends, and he plays with logic throughout, in ways that have given the story lasting popularity with adults as well as children.

It is considered to be one of the most characteristic examples of the “literary nonsense” genre, and its narrative course and structure have been enormously influential, especially in the fantasy genre.
