Introduction by A. S. Byatt

Illustrations by John Tenniel

Includes commissioned endnotes

 

Conceived by a shy British don on a golden afternoon to entertain ten-year-old Alice Liddell and her sisters, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass have delighted generations of readers in more than eighty languages. “The clue to the enduring fascination and greatness of the Alice books,” writes A. S. Byatt in her Introduction, “lies in language. It is play, and word-play, and its endless intriguing puzzles continue to reveal themselves long after we have ceased to be children.”

Includes a Modern Library Reading Group Guide

Synopsis:

Lewis Carroll's marvelous recounting of Alice's adventures — accompanied by John Tenniel's original illustrations — is supplemented by newly commissioned explanatory notes and a reading group guide.
