‘Alice in Wonderland’ is the best known work of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832 – 1898), better known by his pen name, ‘Lewis Carroll’. Telling the tale of a girl named Alice who falls down a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by surreal and anthropomorphic creatures, the book was a huge commercial success on its initial publication in 1865. It was followed by its sequel, ‘Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There’, in 1871. The books play at the heart of logical problems and literary nonsense – giving the narrative lasting popularity with adults and children alike.
