On a drowsy afternoon by a riverbank, a young and distracted Alice follows a rabbit into a fantastical underground world that grows curiouser and curiouser. Dared, insulted, amused, and threatened by a succession of anthropomorphic creatures, the indomitable Alice falls deeper into a swirl of the imagination where logic has no place.

Referenced, resourced, analyzed, and embraced since its publication in 1865, Carroll’s masterpiece of the irrational has inspired such varied artists as Walt Disney, Marilyn Manson, Jerome Kern, James Joyce, and Tim Burton. It stands as one of the most extravagantly and ingeniously absurd works in the English language.

Revised edition: Previously published as Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, this edition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.

About the Author:

Lewis Carroll (1832–1898) was the pen name of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, an English mathematician, professor, photographer, and artist. He first concocted Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland as “Alice’s Adventures Underground”, a story to entertain his boss’s young daughter Alice Liddell and her sisters. The girls demanded more and more of the tale, so he expanded it and eventually wrote it down. He self-published the book in 1865, featuring illustrations by prominent British political cartoonist John Tenniel. It was an instant success, as was its sequel, Through the Looking-Glass. First made into a movie in 1903, it has been adapted to film, picture books, video games, and more; has been translated into 176 languages; and is on the top-ten list of most popular books of all time.
