Are you ready to take a trip to Wonderland?
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is an 1865 English children's novel by Lewis Carroll. A young girl named Alice falls through a rabbit hole into a fantasy world of anthropomorphic creatures. It is seen as a prime example of the literary nonsense genre.
Loved by many around the world, through novels, animation, and Hollywood films, but can you imagine stories that were once considered "nonsense".
Rediscover this classic again, with so many creative fantasies, hidden gems, and current material.
More about the writer;
Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, better known by his pen name Lewis Carroll, was an English writer of children's fiction, notably Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel Through the Looking-Glass. He was noted for his facility with word play, logic, and fantasy.
Available in Paperback & Hardcover by Hawk & Huia Publishing
Carroll picked Henri Bué as translator on the recommendation of Bué's father, who was an Oxford colleague. The younger Bué was just at the beginning of his career, and Carroll could not have known that he would go on to distinguish himself both as a translator and as an author and editor. Bué worked rapidly, and had the translation done in a couple of months. Carroll, on the other hand, spent another two years making certain of it. He solicited the opinions of many friends to test the puns and verses. The prose he seems to have been able to judge for himself, and he wrote to his publisher that he was highly pleased with it.
This reprinting of the first edition is complete with the forty-two Tenniel illustrations that were originally included. Of course it is not just for French readers. As one London reviewer, who called it "a delicious translation," remarked: "We could almost (almost, but not quite) wish we had never read it in English, in order to have the pleasure of reading it in French." He went on to say: "It is an exquisite book in appearance, the same size, type, and illustrations as the original volume; and the fun is wonderfully preserved." He also pointed out that it would be a great help to the "young folks in their studies." That is as true today as it was a hundred years ago, for the charm of the French Alice, like that of the original, has only grown with time.
La petite Alice s'ennuie, assise dans l'herbe... Quand un Lapin Blanc passe en marmonnant devant elle, Alice le poursuit jusque dans son terrier. Sa chute l'entraîne au centre de la Terre, où elle fait d'étranges rencontres: un Chat qui sourit, un Loir qui boit du thé, et une horrible Reine bien décidée à couper la tête de tout le monde...
Le chef-d'oeuvre incontesté de l'absurde et de l'humour loufoque.
This special edition brings together both of Lewis Carroll’s marvelous tales set in the whimsical world beyond the looking glass and down the rabbit hole. Caroll’s first novel, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, finds Alice stuck in Wonderland, surrounded by curious creatures and with no idea of how to return home. With questionable aid from the Cheshire Cat, the Mad Hatter and the Queen of Hearts, Alice eventually finds her way back home. But the enigmatic Alice can’t stay away for long, and she finds herself back in Wonderland in the sequel, Through the Looking-Glass.
Most adaptations of Lewis Carroll’s beloved books have combined the stories featured in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass, including the 1951 animated Disney film Alice in Wonderland. More recently, director Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland (2010), starring Mia Wasikowska and Johnny Depp, used Wonderland lore to create an entirely new storyline about Alice and many of the other characters made famous by Carroll’s novels.
