(the pseudonym of Charles Dodgson).
It tells of a young girl named Alice,
who falls through a rabbit hole into a subterranean fantasy world
populated by peculiar, anthropomorphic creatures.
The tale plays with logic, giving the story lasting popularity
with adults as well as with children.
One of the best-known and most popular works
of English-language fiction, its narrative, structure, characters and imagery
have been enormously influential in popular culture and literature,
The work has never been out of print,
Its ongoing legacy encompasses many adaptations
for stage, screen, radio, art, ballet, theme parks, board games, and video games.
Carroll published a sequel in 1871,
titled Through the Looking-Glass,
and a shortened version for young children, The Nursery “Alice”, in 1890.
