Lewis Carroll's masterpieces, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel Through the Looking Glass, mark an epoch in the history of dream literature, having as much appeal for adults as for children. The story is of a girl Alice, who chasing a rabbit falls into its hole to suddenly find herself in a zany world whose rules appear to change with each person she meets. It is a weird wonderland where flowers talk, chess pieces come alive, playing cards are anthropomorphic and is inhabited by fantastical characters as the Queen of Hearts, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, Chesire Cat, Mock Turtle, Mad Hatter--each being more eccentric than the last. Not merely an awesome children's story, Carroll has created a brilliant biting satire, attacking on the prevalent norms, morals and ethics, a feature which has made the story of lasting popularity with grown-ups as well.About the Author
