Lewis Carroll (Charles Lutwidge Dodgson) is famed for his magical stories, Alice in Wonderlandand Through the Looking-Glass, here illustrated throughout the inner pages by Sir John Tenniel's much loved drawings. However, inspired by the insatiable Victorian appetite for party games, tricks and conundrums, this eccentric and polymathical Englishman also wrote many other works of a humorous, witty, whimsical and nonsensical nature such as the mock-heroic nonsense verse 'The Hunting of the Snark', as well as dozens of other verses, stories, acrostics and puzzles, all of which are included in this volume. Oxford scholar, Church of England Deacon, University Lecturer in Mathematics and Logic, academic author of learned theses, gifted pioneer of portrait photography, colourful writer of imaginative genius and yet a shy and pedantic man, Lewis Carroll stands pre-eminent in the pantheon of inventive literary geniuses.… (mais)

    waltzmn: A "complete works" of an author is most meaningful when one understands the author. Understanding Charles Dodgson is very difficult; he was a strange, reclusive, highly intelligent man (very likely an autistic). Of all the many biographies, this one seems to come closest to telling who he really was, although it is surely not the last word.… (mais)

I found this in a bookstore in Myrtle Beach and was ecstatic. It had "The Hunting of the Snark", which I h ad heard of, but never read, and the Sylvie and Bruno books, which I had never even heard about, with a other stuff that was all bonus.

Sylvie and Bruno are nothing like Alice. They are, frankly, very sweet.

I particularly dug the Sillygisms after I had taken Logic in college, five years later.

I have had to buy a second copy and it is pretty beat up, but I'm not willing for it to be absent from my bookshelf. ( )

I've limited myself to reading the parts The Adventures of Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. For no other reason than that after reading those two, I (for now) had had enough of Alice's adventures and all the wondrous creatures, talking and acting strangely.

It was a nice book and while reading it, I realized that I had read it (in Dutch) before as a child. Of course I would have, because I've been a book worm my whole life. I just had forgotten about this particular book.
It was nice to refresh my memory. ( )

(Original Review, 1994-08-10)

I’ve always interpreted “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” as a (modern) Fairytale.

In a way most of modern commercial movies are more like classical fairytales: very elemental stories set in a simplistic moral universe, with stereotypical characters. The movies may seem to be more complex but that is mostly 'effect'. Movies are very good at the dazzle part of the story telling business. Complexity of story: very much less so.

It is an interesting point though: the differences between stories that were only meant to be told and the kind of stories we have invented and/or developed the moment we could write them down. It is, for instance, suggested that the flowery & repeated descriptors in Homer (rose-fingered dawn, wine-coloured sea et cetera) were part aide-memoirs and part moments that the storyteller didn't have to think about the next word. They were, in other words, part of the mechanics/structure of the story. Something that was no longer needed when people could write the stories down.

So, stories from the oral age have, by necessity, a different shape than later stories like Alice’s. Come to think of it, in a way it's similar to watching a movie in a theatre or a DVD at home. In the theatre you can't pause or rewind: you have to follow the 'story' in the moment. Same with oral and written stories. Around the campfire both storyteller and audience are engaged in a live stream event. You can't have your audience interrupting you, asking you to explain who is who again and wasn't X killed by that cyclops or was that Y...? A written story can have more complexity, because readers can take a break. Try to do “Shogun” as an oral story...

Still, fairytales are probably among the first type of story told and lots of modern stories still carry that DNA. Yes, some modern literature has as much in common with fairytales as birds with dinosaurs but they are still related. More to the point, we wouldn't have birds without those dinos. You could argue we wouldn't have either James Clavell or Marcel Proust without those old oral stories (and fairytales) too...

I think we can discount the druggie and Freudian interpretations as modern fantasies*. But otherwise it is clearly satirical at different levels (the boring schoolroom, linguistic philosophy) while alluding to events and places and presumably people in Alice's life. In a way it's the sort of story that we all make up for our children and grandchildren, but cleverer than most.

(*) So here's mine: There is a convincing theory that Carroll emphasized his relations with little girls (which in the Victorian mindset were necessarily innocent and asexual) to distract attention from his numerous relationships with young (20ish) women which the Victorians would have thought improper for a clergyman. So he sends Alice off down a hole and prattles on about her adventures while having it away with Dinah on the surface. Mind you, it’s just a theory… ( )

THE COMPLETE WORKS OF LEWIS CARROLL

In this magnificent collection of Lewis
Carroll's complete literary writings, the
reader will experience and enjoy the entire
range of his talents: novels, stories, poems,
and puzzles. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson,
as Carroll was actually named, created an
enormous and enduring body of work
among which are two of the best-known
and best-loved children's classics, Alice's
Adventures in Wonderland, and its sequel,
Through the Looking Glass. Both these
books, however, are sophisticated enough
and rich enough in symbolism to be appre
ciated by adults. In fact, both adults and
children have for generations reveled irn
the word play, scratched their heads at the
inverted logic, and marveled at the delight
ful farce that define all of Carroll's works.
This essential volume also includes, among
many other pieces, The Hunting of the
Snark, Sylvie and Bruno, Sylvie and Bruno
Concluded, and Three Sunsets and Other
Poems-all lesser known but no less
important writings.

The air of parody and satire, both political
and social, that runs through Carroll's
works is confirmed by his choice of illustrator,
the incomparable Sir John Tenniel.

The characters that Tenniel drew are as
unforgettable as the written descriptions.
Just think of the unstable and unlucky
Humpty Dumpty, the pudgy twins
Tweedledum and Tweedledee, and that
smile of the
Cheshire Cat.

So, as Lewis Carroll said when he first
thought up the story of Wonderland, travel
straight down the rabbit hole "without the
least idea of what is to happen afterwards,"
and discover an imaginative and bound-
less other world.

Lewis Carroll is the pseudonym used by
Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, who was born
in Cheshire, England, in 1832. He studied
mathematics in college, and in 1854 was
appointed mathematical lecturer at Christ
Church College, Oxford. In 1865 he
published Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
and in 1871 Through the Looking Glass.
During all the time that "Lewis Carroll" was
delighting children with his stories, C. L
Dodgson was publishing scholarly books
on mathematics, the most famous being
Euclid and His Modern Rivals in 1879. He
died in 1898. In the words.
