Synopsis

El clásico que traspasa el umbral que separa la realidad del sueño.
 
En Alicia en el país de las maravillas, la joven Alicia es transportada a través de una conejera a un mundo de maravillas y extravagancias. Ahí encontrará seres absolutamente estrambóticos: el gato de Cheshire, un gato sonriente que aparece y desaparece constantemente; un gusano de seda que fuma y razona; el completamente desequilibrado Sombrerero Loco; una baraja de naipes que juegan al croquet, entre los cuales se encuentra la cruel déspota Reina de Corazones. La continuación de este relato, A través del espejo —en el que Alicia entra a un mundo mágico donde la vida funciona a partir de las reglas del ajedrez— y el hilarante poema La caza del Snark completan esta edición que cuenta también con las míticas ilustraciones originales de John Tenniel. Triunfos de la imaginación y del ingenio, estas narraciones recrean un mundo de escenarios y criaturas insólitos, y ponen en entredicho todos y cada uno de los postulados lógicos en los que se basa nuestro mundo convencional.
 

About Lewis Carroll

See more books from this Author
Born in Daresbury, England,in 1832, Charles Luthwidge Dodgson is better known by his pen mane of Lewis Carroll. He became a minister of the Church of England and a lecturer in mathematics at Christ Church College, Oxford. He was the author, under his own name, of An Elementary Treatise on Determinants (1867), Symbolic Logic (1896), and other scholarly treatises which would hardly have given him a place in English literature. Charles Dodgson might have been completely forgotten but for the work of his alter ego, Lewis Carroll. Lewis Carroll, shy in the company of adults, loved children and knew and understood the world of the imagination in which the most sensitive of them lived. So he put the little girl Alice Liddell into a dream-story and found himself famous as the author of Alice in Wonderland (1865). Through the Looking Glass followed in 1871. In recent years Carroll has been taken quite seriously as a major literary artist for adults as well. His works have come under the scrutiny of critics who have explained his permanent attractiveness in terms of existential and symbolic drama: The Alice books dramatize psychological realities in symbolic terms, being commentary on the nature of the human predicament rather than escape from it. In addition to his writing, Carroll was also a pioneering photographer, and he took many pictures of young children, especially girls, with whom he seemed to empathize.
