Lewis Carroll

  • Texte intégral révisé suivi d'une biographie de Lewis Carroll. Né par hasard des récits que Lewis Carroll improvisait pour les jeunes soeurs Liddel, "Les Aventures d'Alice au Pays des merveilles" est dédié à l'une d'elles, Alice. C'est l'histoire d'un rêve: Alice, en suivant un lapin blanc, est précipitée au centre de la terre. Là, il lui arrive de changer de taille selon ce qu'elle mange, de faire la connaissance du chat de Chester qui peut apparaître ou disparaître à volonté, de prendre le thé avec le lièvre de Mars ou encore de jouer au croquet avec la Reine de Coeur. Elle se trouve en difficulté lorsque toutes les cartes du jeu s'agitent autour d'elle, au moment précis où elle se réveille. "De l'autre côté du miroir" est la suite des aventures d'Alice qui voyage ici dans un pays en forme d'échiquier caché derrière le miroir du salon et y rencontre des êtres vraiment très singuliers. Les deux récits, chefs-d'oeuvre de la littérature enfantine et du voyage initiatique, sont emprunts d'une fantaisie, d'un humour subtil et d'un sens du merveilleux qui dominent toute l'action et les personnages. Lewis Carroll, profond connaisseur de la psychologie des enfants, y relate les choses avec leur mentalité libre sans préjugés et souvent sans pitié pour les conventions sociales.

Parue en 42 langues - une des oeuvres les plus traduites après la Bible - l'oeuvre de Carroll continue à charmer les générations. Les plus jeunes y retrouvent la fantaisie et la magie des dessins animés du XXe siècle et les plus grands les jeux de langage et le goût de l'absurde qui font de ce livre un jeune classique de notre temps.

  • Edition enrichie (Introduction, notes, appendices, chronologie et bibliographie)Tandis qu'elle s'ennuie sur la berge d'un fleuve, Alice voit tout à coup passer un lapin blanc, ce qui n'a rien d'exceptionnel, mais, chose plus surprenante, elle le voit également tirer une montre de la poche de son gilet. Intriguée, la voilà qui se lance à sa poursuite. Le lapin disparaît dans un grand terrier : elle décide d'y descendre à son tour. C'est à la demande d'une vraie petite fille, justement prénommée Alice, que Charles Dodgson, professeur de mathématiques à Oxford, couche sur le papier l'histoire qu'il lui a racontée, en promenade, un jour de l'été 1862. Trois ans plus tard, sous le pseudonyme de Lewis Carroll, il la fait paraître et, encouragé par l'accueil de la presse, lui donne pour suite La Traversée du Miroir dont le succès, en 1871, est encore plus considérable. C'est que l'auteur sait prendre l'enfant au sérieux, et du coup toucher les adultes, comme il sait se dégager assez de l'Angleterre victorienne pour ouvrir à son livre l'avenir d'une oeuvre classique.

  • "Off with her head!" yells the Queen of Hearts, one of the many peculiar creatures Alice encounters after falling down a rabbit hole and into an absurd fantasy world of Mad Tea Parties, nonsensical trials, and talking animals. Published In 1865, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland became an instant success, and author Lewis Carroll broke ground with his unique take on children's stories: Instead of the overly simplistic and sometimes dry tales that characterized the genre in the Victorian age, Carroll introduced a book that didn't look down on its audience, and one that - to this day - is enjoyed by children and adults alike. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland has been translated into 176 languages, and adapted to the screen close to 20 times, most notably by Tim Burton in the 2010 feature film that saw Mia Wasikowska as Alice and Helena Bonham Carter as the unforgettable Queen of Hearts.

    Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There, written in1871, is a novel by Lewis Carroll, the sequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. The themes and settings of Through the Looking-Glass make it a kind of mirror image of Wonderland: the first book begins outdoors, in the warm month of May (4 May), uses frequent changes in size as a plot device, and draws on the imagery of playing cards; the second opens indoors on a snowy, wintry night exactly six months later, on 4 November, uses frequent changes in time and spatial directions as a plot device, and draws on the imagery of chess.

    Bruno's Revenge and Other Stories
    Sylvie and Bruno is a novel for children by Lewis Carroll published in 1889. The work evolved from his short story "Bruno's Revenge," published in 1867 in Aunt Judy's Magazine. With its sequel, Sylvie and Bruno Concluded (1893), it was his final work for children.
    The novel has two main plots; one set in the real world at the time the book was published (the Victorian era), the other in the fictional world of Fairyland. While the latter plot is a fairytale with many nonsense elements and poems, similar to Carroll's most famous children's book Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, the story set in Victorian Britain is a social novel. The French philosopher Gilles Deleuze termed Sylvie and Bruno "a masterpiece which shows entirely new techniques compared to Alice and Through the Looking-Glass."

    Lewis Carroll wrote several mathematics books. He was mainly interested in using logic diagrams as a pedagogical tool.
    Symbolic Logic, first published in 1896, contains literally dozens of puzzles. He believed heartily that children would enjoy learning mathematics if they could be enticed by amusing stories and puzzles.
    The Game of Logic, published in 1897, was intended to teach logic to children. His "game" consisted of a card with two diagrams, together with a set of counters, five grey and four red. The two diagrams were Carroll's version of a two-set and a three-set Venn diagram.
    A manuscript of a brief lecture Lewis Carroll once gave, Feeding the Mind, discusses the importance of not only feeding the body, but also the mind. Carroll wittily puts forth connections between the diet of the body and mind, and gives helpful tips on how to best digest knowledge in the brain. This essay was originally printed in 1907.
    Lewis Carroll ((1832-1898) is best known as the author of Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass. His real name was Charles Dodgson. His father, the Reverend Charles Dodgson, instilled in his son a love of mathematics from an early age. Lewis studied at Oxford, and later taught there as a Mathematics Lecturer.

    What the Tortoise Said to Achilles
    A Tangled Tale is a collection of ten brief humorous stories by Lewis Carroll, published serially between April 1880 and March 1885.The stories, or Knots as Carroll calls them, present mathematical problems. In a later issue, Carroll gives the solution to a Knot and discusses readers' answers. The mathematical interpretations of the Knots are not always straightforward. The ribbing of readers answering wrongly - giving their names - was not always well received.
    Short story "Bruno's Revenge" was originally published in 1867. Some years later, in 1873 or 1874, Carroll had the idea to use this piece as the core for a longer story. Much of the rest of the novel he compiled from notes of ideas and dialogue which he had collected over the years.
    What the Tortoise Said to Achilles, written by Lewis Carroll in 1895 for the philosophical journal Mind, is a brief dialogue which problematises the foundations of logic. The title alludes to one of Zeno's paradoxes of motion, in which Achilles could never overtake the tortoise in a race. In Carroll's dialogue, the tortoise challenges Achilles to use the force of logic to make him accept the conclusion of a simple deductive argument. Ultimately, Achilles fails, because the clever tortoise leads him into an infinite regression.

    This carefully crafted ebook: "The Hunting of the Snark - With the Original High Resolution Illustrations of Henry Holiday" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents.
    The Hunting of the Snark is a nonsense poem written by Lewis Carroll. Written from 1874 to 1876, the poem borrows the setting, some creatures, and eight portmanteau words from Carroll's earlier poem "Jabberwocky" in his children's novel Through the Looking Glass. The plot follows a crew of ten trying to hunt the Snark, an animal which may turn out to be a highly dangerous Boojum; the only one of the crew to find the Snark quickly vanishes, leading the narrator to explain that it was a Boojum after all. Henry Holiday illustrated the poem, and the poem is dedicated to Gertrude Chataway, whom Carroll met as a young girl at the English seaside town Sandown in the Isle of Wight in 1875.

    This is the original version of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland with Carroll's own original illustrations and John Tenniel's original illustrations. It was hand-written by Lewis Carroll for Alice Liddell between 1862 and 1864. The tale was first told by Carroll on 4 July 1862 to the three young daughters of Henry Liddell, Dean of Christ Church, Oxford, on a river boat trip. At Christmas 1886, the manuscript was published in a facsimile edition. This edition is certainly well worth reading, although it is shorter than the final form of the story-the later "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" being about twice the length of the original "Alice's Adventures under Ground".

  • "Tagliatele la testa!" tuona la Regina di Cuori, una delle tante creature singolari che Alice incontra dopo essere caduta nella tana di un coniglio, arrivando in un mondo fantastico e assurdo fatto di pazze feste all'ora del tè, processi senza senso e animali parlanti. Pubblicato nel 1865, "Alice nel paese delle meraviglie" divenne un successo immediato, e l'autore Lewis Carroll diede una sferzata di originalità grazie alla sua interpretazione unica delle storie per bambini: Al contrario dei racconti eccessivamente semplicistici e talvolta aridi che caratterizzavano il genere in epoca vittoriana, Carroll presentò un libro che non guardava dall'alto in basso il suo pubblico e che, ad oggi, è apprezzato da bambini e adulti. "Alice nel paese delle meraviglie" è stata tradotto in 176 lingue e adattato circa 20 volte, tra cui spicca il lungometraggio di Tim Burton del 2010 che vede Mia Wasikowska nei panni di Alice e un'indimenticabile Helena Bonham Carter come la Regina di cuori.
