about this item

Alicia en el país de las maravillas traspasa el umbral que separa la realidad del sueño y se adentra en un territorio sin leyes ni normas donde todo es posible. Triunfo de la imaginación y del ingenio, esta narración recrea un mundo de escenarios y criaturas insólitos, y pone en entredicho todos y cada uno de los postulados lógicos del mundo convencional.Este volumen presenta, junto a la traducción magistral de Luis Maristany y las láminas clásicas de John Tenniel, una nueva edición de Las aventuras subterráneas de Alicia, la obra seminal que el reverendo Dodgson -Lewis Carroll era su seudónimo- escribió e ilustró a mano para Alice Liddell en 1864. Cierra el tomo Alicia para los pequeños, la adaptación infantil que el propio autor hizo de su propia obra en 1890.ENGLISH DESCRIPTIONIn 1862 Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, a shy Oxford mathematician with a stammer, created a story about a little girl tumbling down a rabbit hole. Thus began the immortal adventures of Alice, perhaps the most popular heroine in English literature. Countless scholars have tried to define the charm of the Alice bookswith those wonderfully eccentric characters the Queen of Hearts, Tweedledum, and Tweedledee, the Cheshire Cat, Mock Turtle, the Mad Hatter et al.by proclaiming that they really comprise a satire on language, a political allegory, a parody of Victorian children’s literature, even a reflection of contemporary ecclesiastical history. Perhaps, as Dodgson might have said, Alice is no more than a dream, a fairy tale about the trials and tribulations of growing upor down, or all turned roundas seen through the expert eyes of a child.
