Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is an 1865 novel written by English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll. It tells of a young girl named Alice falling through a rabbit hole into a subterranean fantasy world populated by peculiar, anthropomorphic creatures; the tale plays with logic. It is considered to be one of the best examples of the literary nonsense genre. One of the best-known and most popular works of English-language fiction, its narrative course, structure and imagery have been enormously influential in both popular culture and literature in the fantasy genre; the work has never been out of print, it has been translated into at least 97 languages. Its ongoing legacy encompasses many adaptations for stage, radio, theme parks, board games, video games. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland was published in 1865, three years after Charles Lutwidge Dodgson and the Reverend Robinson Duckworth rowed in a boat, on 4 July 1862, up the Isis with the three young daughters of Henry Liddell: Lorina Charlotte Liddell.
The journey began at Folly Bridge and ended five miles away in the village of Godstow. During the trip Charles Dodgson told the girls a story that featured a bored little girl named Alice who goes looking for an adventure; the girls loved it, Alice Liddell asked Dodgson to write it down for her. He began writing the manuscript of the story the next day, although that earliest version is lost to history; the girls and Dodgson took another boat trip a month when he elaborated the plot to the story of Alice, in November he began working on the manuscript in earnest. To add the finishing touches he researched natural history for the animals presented in the book, had the book examined by other children—particularly the children of George MacDonald, he added his own illustrations but approached John Tenniel to illustrate the book for publication, telling him that the story had been well liked by children. On 26 November 1864 he gave Alice the handwritten manuscript of Alice's Adventures Under Ground, with illustrations by Dodgson himself, dedicating it as "A Christmas Gift to a Dear Child in Memory of a Summer's Day".
Some, including Martin Gardner, speculate that there was an earlier version, destroyed by Dodgson when he wrote a more elaborate copy by hand. But before Alice received her copy, Dodgson was preparing it for publication and expanding the 15,500-word original to 27,500 words, most notably adding the episodes about the Cheshire Cat and the Mad Tea Party. Chapter One – Down the Rabbit Hole: Alice, a seven-year-old girl, is feeling bored and drowsy while sitting on the riverbank with her elder sister, she notices a talking, clothed White Rabbit with a pocket watch run past. She follows it down a rabbit hole when she falls a long way to a curious hall with many locked doors of all sizes, she finds a small key to a door too small for her to fit through, but through it, she sees an attractive garden. She discovers a bottle on a table labelled "DRINK ME," the contents of which cause her to shrink too small to reach the key which she has left on the table, she eats a cake with "EAT ME" written on it in currants.
Chapter Two – The Pool of Tears: Chapter Two opens with Alice growing to such a tremendous size her head hits the ceiling. Alice is unhappy and, as she cries, her tears flood the hallway. After shrinking down again due to a fan she had picked up, Alice swims through her own tears and meets a Mouse, swimming as well, she tries to make small talk with him in elementary French but her opening gambit "Où est ma chatte?" offends the mouse and he tries to escape her. Chapter Three – The Caucus Race and a Long Tale: The sea of tears becomes crowded with other animals and birds that have been swept away by the rising waters. Alice and the other animals convene on the bank and the question among them is how to get dry again; the Mouse gives them a dry lecture on William the Conqueror. A Dodo decides that the best thing to dry them off would be a Caucus-Race, which consists of everyone running in a circle with no clear winner. Alice frightens all the animals away, unwittingly, by talking about her cat. Chapter Four – The Rabbit Sends a Little Bill: The White Rabbit appears again in search of the Duchess's gloves and fan.
Mistaking her for his maidservant, Mary Ann, he orders Alice to retrieve them. Inside the house she finds another little bottle and drinks from it; the horrified Rabbit orders his gardener, Bill the Lizard, to climb on the roof and go down the chimney. Outside, Alice hears the voices of animals; the crowd hurls pebbles at her. Alice eats them, they reduce her again in size. Chapter Five – Advice from a Caterpillar: Alice comes upon a mushroom and sitting on it is a blue Caterpillar smoking a hookah; the Caterpillar questions Alice and she admits to her current identity crisis, compounded by her inability to remember a poem. Before crawling away, the caterpillar tells Alice that one side of the mushroom will make her taller and the
