    This volume will stay with me for my entire life It was the first grown up book I ever received as a gift from a stranger whose name escapes me Whoever it was, they changed my life Stepping into Carroll s world opened my mind to the possibilities of the human imagination, the concept of math as art, and interested me in the man behind the genius.

    I have very mixed reviews of this one book Complete collections of Lewis Carroll, and I now understand why Alice in Wonderland, followed by Through the Looking Glass, are his best known works I suppose I shouldn t say I completed this book, because after Sylvie and Bruno I just couldn t take it Baby talk I cannot STAND baby talk in real life, and reading it even coming from a small child , isthan I can take For example, here s the sort of excerpt that makes me fly on in an angry ra I have very mixed reviews of this one book Complete collections of Lewis Carroll, and I now understand why Alice in Wonderland, followed by Through the Looking Glass, are his best known works I suppose I shouldn t say I completed this book, because after Sylvie and Bruno I just couldn t take it Baby talk I cannot STAND baby talk in real life, and reading it even coming from a small child , isthan I can take For example, here s the sort of excerpt that makes me fly on in an angry rant Doos oo think Crocodiles goes walks wizout blankets I don t care how young the character you re writing about is suppose to be this is obnoxious and makes me intensely dislike this child Which may be irrational and unfair, but this was just painful.I enjoyed the nonsense of Alice in Wonderland It s very well done if you accept that you re reading a dream It s well done that way like when you re having a dream and a pink elephant walks in, you just accept it and start up a conversation And when he turns into Lucille Ball you just accept it and continue on That, I enjoyed The nonsense of Sylvie and Bruno blended with those existential conversations in the adult world was just not engaging for me I couldn t bring myself to carry on with Sylvie and Bruno Concluded Maybe if I become masochistic one day I ll attempt it

    What is the use of a book without pictures or conversationsI agree especially conversations And the conversations in Alice s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass are some of the most famously fabulous confabulations Don t mind me, I just like how that word sounds These pictures, by illustrator John Tenniel, were very important to Lewis Carroll and his story.It s been many years since I ve read these stories, and I am surprised to find them both profound and hilarious What is the use of a book without pictures or conversationsI agree especially conversations And the conversations in Alice s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass are some of the most famously fabulous confabulations Don t mind me, I just like how that word sounds These pictures, by illustrator John Tenniel, were very important to Lewis Carroll and his story.It s been many years since I ve read these stories, and I am surprised to find them both profound and hilarious But then, I am not the same person I was yesterday It now seems obvious that Alice s shifting size, discomfort, and confusion simply describe being a child By the way, Alice is seven and a half years old, and she is always the voice of intelligence and innocence in the rather insane,adult world around her The sequel story, Through the Looking Glass, has a darker,serious tone, in my opinion I know that the first time I read this, the fact that there is a chess game on the entire time was lost on me Alice begins as a pawn, and that train ride she takes at the beginning is her first move a big one, since pawns are allowed to move two spaces in their first turn And the way the queens move so fast making Alice run and get out of breath corresponds to the way a queen is allowed to move Near the end, the white knight who rescues her, and is so clumsily falling off his horse, left and right, is demonstrating his L shaped moves, as well After her encounter with the knight, Alice has only to cross over onebrook before reaching the eighth rank promotion to queen She wakes up after capturing the red queen.Note evidently, back in Lewis Carroll s day, most chess sets were red and white, instead of black and white I don t know much about chess, so this would be what I notice Another thing lost on me was the famous conversation with the white queen, when she says, The rule is, jam to morrow and jam yesterday but never jam to dayI took for granted that that was pure silly nonsense, but it was actually meant as a pun It is a rule of Latin grammar which I don t remember learning myself in Latin class that iam means now, but only in past and future In the present, the word would be nunc i and j are interchangeable in Latin Evidently, this quote became so famous that it became an expression for asking for too much, as in I suppose you want jam on that What was not lost on me the first time was the poems The Jabberwocky and The Walrus and the Carpenter, especially And Alice s conversation with Humpty Dumpty, and how he translates some of the words in the first poem is fun He s quite the egg head There is so much to love, here and I know it s all been said before I am very glad that I picked it up again

    I consider the Alice books and Carroll s nonsense poems some of the greatest works in the English language Viewing the full scope of his work in this hefty tome, it s difficult to say everything else reaches the same level, which is why I dock a star The Sylvie Bruno novels are interesting,adult versions of his surreal fantasy with overt nods to fairy lore, but they oddly suffer from moralism and sentimentality His early poetry is strikingly very Victorian and not always bad, just I consider the Alice books and Carroll s nonsense poems some of the greatest works in the English language Viewing the full scope of his work in this hefty tome, it s difficult to say everything else reaches the same level, which is why I dock a star The Sylvie Bruno novels are interesting,adult versions of his surreal fantasy with overt nods to fairy lore, but they oddly suffer from moralism and sentimentality His early poetry is strikingly very Victorian and not always bad, just unformed and derivative.If you like Lewis Carroll and want to explore his work indepth, any of the complete collections are well advised It certainly gives one afull picture of Carroll s core themes and style, his absolute talent with language and logic If you like the Alice books, read Gardner s annotations first

    For me, who hasn t read these stories all the way through, I find my imagination stimulated with each short sitting.

    This one was difficult for me to rate While Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass have both always been 5 stars for me, I found the rest of his work boring I did like a couple of his poems, but overall I was a bit disappointed For years I have always said that Lewis Carroll was one of my favorite authors and now I m so sad to discover that that isn t the truth However, the Alice books will forever be my favorite books.
