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.

Simply because it’s so complex, we both ad...

When I was young I thought this book was called A Donkey Named Oatie, LOL. My mother turned this book into a children's story starring said donkey. For that reason this book will always be special to me. I have read the original version and like it too, but no where as much as Oatie's tale.

5.0 Don Quixote -- A Book Review in Three Sallies
The First Sally The story of Don Quixote is one that plays itself over and over again. In real life and in literature, to the point where it is hardly clear where one story ends and another begins. Manager: Customer renewal rates! Me: Señor, are you referring to those windmills. A story of a...
