The Annotated Alice
3.5 Stars

A wonderfully whimsy tale that reveals insightful social satire and criticism of the time.

This particular edition is intended for students and scholars. In this respect, it is long on the annotation but short on the analysis. As a scholarly work it is missing some deeper insights.

A different edition might be preferable for those interested in the story alone. ( )

One of my all-time favorite books, one that I reread every exam time when I was in college.

Lovely, funny and smart. Everything you always wanted to understand about this classic, but didn't know whom to ask. Even the chess moves are explained. ( )

Wipe your glosses with what you know — James Joyce
For Brother Jim and Sister Judy
First words
All in the golden afternoon / Full leisurely we glide; / for both our oars, with little skill, / By little arms are plied, / While little hands make vain pretence / Our wanderings to guide.
Introduction: Let it be said at once that there is something preposterous about an annotated ALICE.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0140013873, Paperback)

For over half a century, Martin Gardner has established himself as one of the world's leading authorities on Lewis Carroll. His Annotated Alice, first published in 1960, has over half a million copies in print around the world and is highly sought after by families and scholars alike -- for it was Gardner who first decoded the wordplay and the many mathematical riddles that lie embedded in Carroll's two classic stories: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass.

Forty years after this groundbreaking publication, Norton is proud to publish the Definitive Edition of The Annotated Alice, a work that combines the notes of Gardner's 1960 edition with his 1990 update, More Annotated Alice, as well as additional new discoveries and updates drawn from Gardner's encyclopedic knowledge of the texts. Illustrated with John Tenniel's classic and beloved art -- along with many recently discovered Tenniel pencil sketches -- The Annotated Alice will be Gardner's most beautiful and enduring tribute to Carroll's masterpieces yet.
