The Annotated Alice

I first read Alice’s Adventues in Wonderland & Through the Looking Glass when I was in sixth grade. I remember absolutely loving them. For a while, it was one of my favorites, and I immediately bought The Annotated Alice. Now, I have finally reread it. First off, let me just say that I absolutely love The Annotated Alice. It’s so PRETTY. I also love all the footnotes, but I admit, I skipped some of the longer ones. The footnotes helped me appreciate the Alice books and Lewis Carroll. Now that I’ve reread this, I would love to read a biography on Lewis Carroll. I’ve heard all the rumors of him being a Victorian pedophile, but I’d love to learn more. Especially the mathematician, or should I say Charles Dodgson. Anyone know any good biographies? The only negative about The Annotated Alice is the size. It’s hard to really curl up and read it. A paperback edition would be nice.

    It is a pretty book, isn’t it?

    When I’m curious about a person or topic, I usually head to Wikipedia. If it leaves me wanting more, well, there are links at the bottom to expert sites. And if I still want more, there are often books about the topic mentioned in the Wikipedia article or on the sites the article links to.

    Oh, sounds good. I’d love to read the actual book before the new movie version is released. Perhaps.

  3. I love Alice in Wonderland too! This sounds like an interesting read. I don’t know of any good bios of Lewis Carroll offhand, but I turn to Wikipedia like the previous poster, ha ha!
