aka Charles L. Dodgson

November 27, 1865 ‘Alice in Wonderland’ was first published in the USA. It had been distributed in Britain in June. It was and is an achievement in literature, wit, and insight- from Lewis Carroll.

Alice herself was a novelty, being both ‘proper’ and feisty. Hers is a society of social conventions, which she navigates without allowing herself to be abused or misguided. True to herself is Alice.

Carroll does not idealize children or their potential and awareness. He honors them as perceptive and fairminded. Some author!!
