Editorial Reviews

From Kirkus Reviews

A welcome, greatly expanded third edition of Gardners beloved critical edition of Carrolls Victorian fairy tales. One of the longest ongoing love affairs in literature has to be that between Gardner, a prolific, popular writer on math and science, and Carrolls ostensible childrens tales, Alices Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. With a dedication rare even among scholars, Gardner has tracked down origins and meanings of the wordplay and mathematical puzzles the sly Carroll embedded in his texts. He has also researched Charles Dodgson's life and illuminated the two stories sly parody of high Victorian culture. This new volume combines the notes from The Annotated Alice (1960) and More Annotated Alice (1990) with Gardners latest discoveries, offering both ardent fans of Carroll's work and newcomers a chance to read the texts in the light of Gardner's labors. The result is rather like sitting in on the creation of a work of art; the manner in which the shy mathematician and tutor Dodgson poured everything that fascinated him (children's games, chess, mathematical riddles and logic, an amused view of Victorian literature and society) into the work by his alter ego Carroll is illuminated through Gardner's lucid and copious notes. They run in a narrow (and surprisingly unobtrusive) column accompanying Carroll's text on each page, turning the book into a fluid mix of Carroll and Gardner. The illustrations, by John Tenniel, also provide fertile ground for Gardner's commentary. The notes are so clear, enthusiastic, and helpful that it is now hard to imagine Carroll without Gardner. A unique collaboration has produced, for once, a book that lives up to its name. As close to a definitive take on a classic work as anyone is likely to come. -- Copyright ©1999, Kirkus Associates, LP.

From the Author

Lewis Carroll, sometimes referred to by his real name “Charles Lutwidge Dodgson,” was an English writer as well as pursuer of many other artistic and intellectual fields. He was born in Daresbury, Cheshire, England, in 1832, and wrote poetry and short stories from a very young age. As an adult, he attended Oxford University. Throughout his life he penned numerous stories, most notably the two Alice stories. He died in 1898 at age 65.

Sir John Tenniel was a famous English illustrator and cartoonist born in Bayswater, United Kingdom. Throughout his career, he became one of the most significant contributors to the Golden Age of illustration. He illustrated political cartoons for Punch magazine for more than fifty years, provided the famed illustrations for Lewis Carroll’s Alice classics, and was knighted for his artistic achievements. He died in 1914 at age 93. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on March 4, 2023
I first saw this edition in person at Barnes n Noble but it was going for 40 dollars so I knew I had to find it for cheaper online. Glad I did! I already own the book but had to get this edition because it matches my purple color changing Alice tea cup perfectly! The cover is a beautiful soft type of fabric texture, almost with some cushion. The drawn design is beautifully iridescent! The pages were not painted gold like the Barnes N Noble one but that doesn’t matter.
