The story of Alice : Lewis Carroll and the secret history of Wonderland

Douglas-Fairhurst, Robert2015
Books
Drawing on previously unpublished material, 'The Story of Alice' illuminates the tangled history of two lives and two books, examining the peculiar friendship between Oxford mathematician Charles Dodgson, Lewis Carroll, and Alice Liddell, the child for whom he invented the Alice stories. It analyses how their relationship influenced the creation of Wonderland, how the two Alice books took on an unstoppable cultural momentum in the Victorian era, and why 150 years later they continue to enthrall and delight us.
