With an Introduction and Notes by Michael Irwin, Professor of English Literature, University of Kent at Canterbury This selection of Carroll's works includes Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel, Through the Looking-Glass, both containing the famous illustrations by Sir John Tenniel. No greater books for children have ever been written. The simple language, dreamlike atmosphere, and fantastical characters are as appealing to young readers today as ever they were. Meanwhile, however, these apparently simple stories have become recognised as adult masterpieces, and extraordinary experiments, years ahead of their time, in Modernism and Surrealism. Through wordplay, parody and logical and philosophical puzzles, Carroll engenders a variety of sub-texts, teasing, ominous or melancholy. For all the surface playfulness there is meaning everywhere. The author reveals himself in glimpses.

Mio caro don Chisciotte, sono passati decenni dal nostro primo incontro. Bimbetta settenne, m’accompagnasti per mano nel tuo mondo incantato. Imparai a vedere il bello grazie a te che iniziata l’avventura trasformasti in castello l’osteria. E sempre grazie a te capii che anche la più folle delle ide...

3.0 Von einem der auszog, ein Ritter zu werden
Mit grandiosem Einfallsreichtum erzählt Cervantes von den Abenteuern des verarmten Adligen, der in einer Traumwelt vergangener Ritterzeiten lebt, und seines treuen Waffenträgers Sancho Pansa. Ähnlich wie Goethes Faust für die Deutschen ist Don Quijote für die Spanier zum Sinnbild eines nationalen Ge...
