Al otro lado del espejo

by Lewis Carroll

Al otro lado del espejo Lewis Carroll Ha de entenderse este segundo libro de Alicia como continuación del primero. Si en el primero Alicia toma contacto con el mundo de los adultos, en el segundo ingresa definitivamente en él. A «atravesar el espejo», Alicia está atravesando (aunque sólo fuera en sueños) el umbral de su propia niñez. El mundo que le espera «al otro lado» es, vez, igual y radicalmente distinto al suyo propio. . Se produce a lo largo de toda la narración, una inversión de la realidad. Alicia contempla el mundo de los adultos no como la «realidad» (tal como lo contemplamos nosotros) sino justamente lo contrario, como una inversión de la realidad. Para entender esta «inversión» es preciso echar mano de dos palabras absolutamente definitorias en el idioma inglés. Se trata del common sense y de su opuesto, el nonsense. La sociedad victoriana estaba basada en unas normas de conducta que nacían del sentido pragmático del pueblo inglés, de su common sense. Pero estas normas, vistas a través de los ojos inocentes de una niña, aparecen desprovistas de su sentido común, resultan ser totalmente convencionales y arbitrarias. Del common sense hemos pasado al nonsense.

Alice in Zombieland

by Lewis Carroll Nickolas Cook

They were indeed a queer-looking party that assembled on the bank-the birds with draggled feathers, the animals with their fur clinging close to them, and all dripping wet, cross, and uncomfortable. All of them were covered in Alice's now cold and congealed blood, which made them even tastier looking to poor hungry Alice.When little Alice follows the Black Rat down into the gaping darkness of an open grave, she falls and falls. And soon finds herself in an undead nightmare of rotting flesh and insanity. Venturing further into this land of zombies and monsters, she encounters characters both creepy and madcap along the way.

And she has the haunting feeling that if she remains in Zombieland any longer, she might never leave.Can Alice escape Zombieland before the Dead Red Queen catches up to her?

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

by Lewis Carroll

Begin at the beginning, and go on till you come to the end: then stop.'. So many readers were to take the advice of the King of Hearts that by the end of the nineteenth century Alice had acquired a pre-eminent and unassailable position in children's literature. Lewis Carroll's use of logic, by which the ordinary is translated into the extraordinary in an entirely plausible way, is delightfully combined with an exceptional knowledge and understanding of the mind of the child. Satire, allusion, and symbolism weave deeper and mysterious meanings, lending a measure of immortality to Carroll's remarkable fantasy.

Alice is sitting on the edge of a riverbank when she spots a white rabbit in a waistcoat disappearing down a hole. Before long, she finds herself jumping down the rabbit-hole after it, and entering a world unlike any other. Here Alice drinks unknown liquids that shrink her in size and she eats mushrooms that make her gigantic.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass

by Lewis Carroll A. S. Byatt John Tenniel Lynne Vallone

'I had sent my heroine straight down a rabbit-hole . . . without the least idea what was to happen afterwards,' wrote Charles Dodgson, describing how Alice was conjured up one 'golden afternoon' in 1862 to entertain his child-friend Alice Liddell. His dream worlds of nonsensical Wonderland and the back-to-front Looking-Glass kingdom depict order turned upside-down: a baby turns into a pig, time is abandoned at a disordered tea-party and a chaotic game of chess makes a seven-year-old girl a Queen. But amongst the anarchic humour and sparkling word play, puzzles, paradoxes and riddles, are poignant moments of elegiac nostalgia for lost childhood. Startlingly original and experimental, the Alice books provide readers with a double window on both child and adult worlds. This is the most comprehensively annotated edition available and includes the manuscript version of Alice's Adventures Underground and Carroll's essay '"Alice" on the Stage' written for the under Ground Theatre in 1887.

Alicia en el país de las maravillas

by Lewis Carroll

Alicia en el país de las maravillas Lewis Carroll Nos encontramos ante un clásico moderno. Y en cierta manera también delante de un libro de culto; ante un monumento a la sin-razón, a los juegos de lógica, al universo mágico de los niños -un mundo en el que las flores hablan, los animales establecen diálogos con las personas, un mundo escondido que descubrimos tras penetrar por la madriguera del Conejo Blanco, o bien al "Otro lado de espejo". Esta es una forma de mirar la existencia que el paso de los años, la educación, el lenguaje formal y las costumbres sociales hacen desaparecer de la memoria; pero que una infusión de hongos, como los que la Oruga entrega a Alicia, permiten adentremos nuevamente en este mágico mundo subterráneo de la imaginación, carente de la lógica del mundo cotidiano, enel que todo cobra existencia y conciencia... En cierto modo Alicia es un libro y muchos a la vez. Es quizás por esto que ha tenido tal repercusión. Miles de lectores se han zambullido en su mundo, generación tras generación, apasionándose por los mil y un rincones enigmáticos y fascinantes del libro. Su autor, apasionado por los juegos de lógica, se valió del lenguaje de los cuentos para plasmar un universo lleno de juegos de palabras, de situaciones imposibles, de acertijos sin fin. Y a partir de aquí también edificó una sutil pero demoledora crítica a los roles de la sociedad, al aspecto formal y superficial de la convivencia humana, creando un cosmos en el que los animales ven con extrañeza y horror al mundo de los humanos, en el que la Naturaleza protesta y rebuzna ante tanta petulancia y soberbia; pero al mismo tiempo también una oportunidad para descubrir cosas nuevas, para recrear, jugar y danzar con nuevos compañeros y conocidos.

The Hunting of the Snark

by Lewis Carroll

'They sought it with thimbles, they sought it with care; They pursued it with forks and hope; They threatened its life with a railway share; They charmed it with smiles and soap' Ever since Lewis Carroll's nonsense epic appeared in 1876 readers have joined his ten-man Snark-hunting crew and pursued the search with great enthusiasm. What are they hunting for? What is the Snark? Numerous theories have been proposed. Carroll himself provides a helpful Preface to the poem and is recorded as having explained to one reader: 'In answer to your question, 'What did you mean the Snark was?' will you tell your friend that I meant that the Snark was a Boojum. I trust that she and you will now feel quite satisfied and happy. ' This edition, previously published as The Annotated Snark, reproduces the original illustrations by Henry Holiday, including the 'supressed' Boojum drawing. Martin Gardner provides an introduction, notes and bibliography, and an Appendix contains F. C. S. Schiller's 'Commentary on the Snark' and J. A. Lyndon's 'Fit the Seven-and-a-Halfth'.

The Modern Library Children's Classics: 5-Book Bundle

by Alexandre Dumas Lewis Carroll Kenneth Grahame J. M. Barrie

For young dreamers, nostalgic parents, and imaginative readers of all ages, this wonderful eBook collection not only contains five of the most beloved children's books in the world but some of the most admired and enduring literature ever put to page. Each of these can be considered a "Household Book," as A. A. Milne so affectionately described The Wind in the Willows--books that "everybody in the household loves, and quotes continually ever afterwards; [books which are] read aloud to every new guest." THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS Kenneth Grahame Written by Kenneth Grahame as bedtime stories for his son, The Wind in the Willows continues to delight readers today. Basing his fanciful animal characters on human archetypes, Grahame imparts a gentle, playful wisdom in his timeless tales. Few readers will be able to resist an invitation to join the Wild Wooders at Toad Hall, enjoy a quick splash in the river with Rat and Badger, or take a swerving ride with Toad in a "borrowed" motor-car. ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND & THROUGH THE LOOKING-GLASS Lewis Carroll 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." PETER PAN J. M. Barrie Set in London and and the magical Neverland, J. M. Barrie's tale of a boy who refuses to grow up has delighted generations of readers. In this novel, which Barrie adapted from his 1904 play, Peter introduces Wendy, Michael, and John Darling to the fairy Tinker Bell and the lost boys. Together, they do battle with Captain Hook and his fierce band of pirates. THE THREE MUSKETEERS Alexandre Dumas First published in 1844, Alexandre Dumas's swashbuckling epic chronicles the adventures of D'Artagnan, a gallant young nobleman who journeys to Paris in 1625 hoping to join the ranks of the musketeers guarding Louis XIII. He soon finds himself fighting alongside three heroic comrades--Athos, Porthos, and Aramis--who seek to uphold the honor of the king by foiling the wicked plots of Cardinal Richelieu and the beautiful spy "Milady."
