Alice's Adventures in Wonderland


Quick Reference

A story for children by Lewis Carroll (see Dodgson), published 1865.

Originally entitled Alice's Adventures under Ground, and written for his young friend Alice Liddell, it tells how Alice dreams she pursues a White Rabbit down a rabbit‐hole to a world where she encounters such celebrated characters as the Duchess and the Cheshire Cat, the Mad Hatter and the March Hare, the King and Queen of Hearts, and the Mock Turtle. It contains the poems ‘You are old, Father William’, ‘Beautiful Soup’, and others, and Carroll's typographical experiment ‘Fury and the Mouse’, in the shape of a mouse's tail.
