The Alice Companion

£9.99

Product description

The Alice Companion: A Guide To Lewis Carroll's Alice Books.

Lewis Carroll's Alice books are literary classics, but they have influenced more than just the world of literature. The Alice books have been adapted for film, television, radio and the stage; and Alice herself has become a cultural artefact, right down to the hairband she wears which is of course named after her. Other characters from the books live on outside the covers: who can ever forget the grinning Cheshire cat, or the Mad Hatter's tea party? This extraordinary companion to the Alice books offers not simply an explanation of the characters and situations that fill their pages, but explains how they relate to the life and experiences of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson - better known to millions of readers as Lewis Carroll.

Hardback book in very good condition, with dust jacket. Minor shelf wear.
