Collecting Alice's complete adventures, a source of delight to children and adults alike for generations, the Penguin Classics edition of Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass is edited with an introduction and notes by Hugh Haughton. Conjured up one 'golden afternoon' in 1862 to entertain Alice Liddell, the daughter of the dean of Carroll's college, the dream worlds of nonsensical Wonderland and back-to-front Looking-Glass kingdom depict order turned upside-down. Following the white rabbit into his warren, Alice falls into a world where croquet is played with hedgehogs and flamingos, a baby turns into a pig, time runs amok at a the Mad Hatter's tea-party, a chaotic game of chess makes Alice a Queen and the Mock Turtle and Gryphon dance the Lobster Quadrille. But amongst the anarchic humour and sparkling wordplay, unforgettable characters, puzzles and riddles, are poignant moments of nostalgia for a lost childhood. Original and experimental, adapted into countless film and television versions as Alice in Wonderland, the Alice books give readers a window on both child and adult worlds. This is the most comprehensively annotated edition available and includes the manuscript version of Alice's Adventures Under Ground and Carroll's 1887 essay ''Alice' on the stage'. Lewis Carroll (1832-1898) was the pen-name of the Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. Educated at Rugby School and Christ Church, Oxford, Carroll was appointed lecturer in mathematics in 1855, where he spent the rest of his life. In 1861 he took deacon's orders, but shyness and a constitutional stammer prevented him from seeking the priesthood. If you enjoyed Alice's Adventures in Wonderland you might like Mikhail Bulgakov's The Master and Margarita, also available in Penguin Classics. 'A work of glorious intelligence and literary devices ... nonsense becomes a form of higher sense' Malcolm Bradbury

Ambiguity as a Source of Humor in Lewis Carroll...

Seminar paper from the year 2012 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Linguistics, grade: 1,0, University of Würzburg, language: English, abstract: 'But I don't want to go among mad people,' Alice remarked. 'Oh, you can't help that,' said the Cat: 'we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad.' This quote captures like nothing else the essence of Lewis Carroll's classic children's book Alice in Wonderland. The story of a young girl getting bored during a hot summer day and slipping into a dreamland full of odd creatures has enchanted generations of children myself included. Alice is not a typical children's book though, as it is quite multilayered, thanks to Carroll's clever play with language. Carroll, common name Charles Lutwige Dodgson, was quite fond of using several stylistic devices like punning, to delight the young readership his stories were for. But I also noticed that he used ambiguity in quite a few instances. Many characters are very fond of ambiguity most prominently The Cheshire Cat, the Mad Hatter, the Mock Turtle, Gryphon and the Red King. Carroll mostly uses ambiguity to create confusion through misunderstandings, mostly on Alice's dispense, which in return tends to create a certain humor for the reader. In this seminar paper I will discuss Carroll's use of ambiguity in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by analyzing several instances of it that appear throughout the novel. I will start out by defining ambiguity and in what ways ambiguity has been researched by other linguists and what results their studies produced. I am also going to explore the origins of Alice in Wonderland. How did Carroll come up with it? What kind of story is it? On the stylistic level I will examine what Carroll's general stance on ambiguity was and how he used it to create both confusion and comedy? I will take a closer look at the different forms of ambiguity he employs and how characters react to the usage of it.
