Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is a novel written by English mathematician Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll. It tells of a girl named Alice falling through a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by peculiar, anthropomorphic creatures. The tale plays with logic, giving the story lasting popularity with adults as well as with children. It is considered to be one of the best examples of the literary nonsense genre. Its narrative course and structure, characters and imagery have been enormously influential in both popular culture and literature, especially in the fantasy genre.

Alice was published in 1865, three years after Charles Lutwidge Dodgson and the Reverend Robinson Duckworth rowed a boat up the Isis on 4 July 1862 (this popular date of the "golden afternoon" might be a confusion or even another Alice-tale, for that particular day was cool, cloudy, and rainy) with the three young daughters of Henry Liddell (the Vice-Chancellor of Oxford University and Dean of Christ Church): Lorina Charlotte Liddell (aged 13, born 1849, "Prima" in the book's prefatory verse); Alice Pleasance Liddell (aged 10, born 1852, "Secunda" in the prefatory verse); Edith Mary Liddell (aged 8, born 1853, "Tertia" in the prefatory verse).

The journey began at Folly Bridge in Oxford and ended 3 miles (5 km) north-west in the village of Godstow. During the trip, Dodgson told the girls a story that featured a bored little girl named Alice who goes looking for an adventure. The girls loved it, and Alice Liddell asked Dodgson to write it down for her. He began writing the manuscript of the story the next day, although that earliest version no longer exists. The girls and Dodgson took another boat trip a month later when he elaborated the plot to the story of Alice, and in November he began working on the manuscript in earnest.

    Pseudonimo di Charles Lutwidge Dodgson.Scrittore inglese, studiò a Rugby e a Oxford, nel Christ Church College, dove rimase poi sino al 1881 come lettore di matematica pura, scienza alla quale dedicò numerosi trattati. Di carattere assai timido, C. fu grande amico (e fotografo) di alcune bambine, e per una di esse, Alice Liddell, scrisse Alice nel paese delle meraviglie (Alice’s adventures in Wonderland, 1865). Quest’opera, la più nota e amata della letteratura infantile inglese, ha esercitato una forte attrazione anche sui lettori adulti per il peculiare gusto del gioco logico e verbale. Alle avventure di Alice C. diede un seguito con Attraverso lo specchio (Through the looking-glass, 1871), che ebbe un successo quasi altrettanto vasto. I personaggi, che nell’opera... Approfondisci
