About Alice in Wonderland
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, commonly referred to as Alice in Wonderland, was written and self-published in 1865, by Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pen name Lewis Carroll. Dodgson was a British mathematician, writer, logician and Anglican deacon. His best-known works are Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel, Through the Looking-Glass.
The enchanting story of Alice in Wonderland, popular among children and adults alike, is about a girl named Alice who falls down a rabbit hole into an astonishing fantasy world. Fans of the story love following Alice as she goes through adventures that include tea with the Mad Hatter and interactions with the Queen of Hearts, while trying to make sense of grown-up nonsense.
The Inspiration Behind Alice in Wonderland
Alice in Wonderland was inspired by a real-life little girl named Alice and her two sisters. Charles Dodgson was on a boat trip with his friend Reverend Robinson Duckworth and the three little sisters of Dodgson’s close friend Harry Liddell – Alice, Edith and Lorina.
During the trip, Alice requested that Dodgson tell a story with plenty of nonsense in it. In response to her request, he made up a story about a whimsical world full of peculiar characters. The main girl in the story was named Alice.
The real-life Alice was so fascinated with the story that she asked Dodgson to write it down for her. The written story that he gave to her was the first version of what we now know as Alice in Wonderland.
