Première phrase
Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do: once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in it, "and what is the use of a book," thought Alice, "without pictures or conversations?" Lire la première page

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Can't be too definitive 23 juin 2003
Par bernie
Format:Relié
The story may look like it was written in English. However, it is actually English separated by time and space. The story may look straightforward but it is full of allegories and linguistic puns. Without annotations, you may understand some statements clearly, yet miss others all together.

The annotation enforces hat you probably know that this story is and not intended for children just because it is written about a child.

Some things are self evident as being so short that you can touch your toes. Others may take some time, as the reason hatters are mad is the process includes mercury. Still when was the last time you used a bathing machine? Knowing some of information can enhance the enjoyment of reading the story.

You get the original illustrations to boot. So when you are finished perusing this book it can be used as a coffee table conversation book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Un très bel ouvrage. A must have! 21 mars 2013
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Tout le génie littéraire de Lewis Carroll, accompagné des illustrations d'origine de commentaires bienvenus!
Quel dommage que ce livre soit imprimé en Chine...
La reliure est parfaite et les dorures sont du plus bel effet. Un 'must have' dans la bibliothèque des amateurs de 'Nonsense Poetry' et de beaux textes en anglais!
“In a Wonderland they lie, Dreaming as the days go by, Dreaming as the summers die: Ever drifting down the stream- Lingering in the golden gleam- Life, what is it but a dream?”

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The name of this review is called "Haddocks' Eyes" 23 février 2001
Par "limespider" - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I finally, and seemingly permanently, misplaced the 40 year old copy of 'The Annotated Alice' (which I had pilfered from my mother's bookshelf) for the last time. I can't go more than a month or two without it so I rushed to buy a new copy...just weeks before the more beautifully bound 'Definitive Edition' was published. No matter, now I have two (perhaps even three if the original turns up).
My point is that this book contributed more to my understanding of logic and wordplay than several semesters of college philosophy classes. If you've read this far then I am probably preaching to the choir but 'Alice in Wonderland' can hardly be classified as a childrens' book, dispite Disney's attempts to do so. The concepts Lewis Carroll and Martin Gardner bring to this tale cover such areas as set theory, meta-language, Aristotelian logic, topography, game theory, several pre-Socratic logic paradoxes, and even quantum physics. Yet John Tenniel's original illustrations remain as an welcome tether to the original publication.
Gardner does a wonderful job of bringing all the various aspects of these two stories together as he illuminates layer upon layer of meaning that might not be evident to an American audience or, for that matter, a 21st century one. My favorite gems are the French and German translations of The Jabberwocky.
This book ranks in my top five favorite books of all time.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Looking Glass Shows Hidden Humor 22 janvier 2000
Par Ian - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I always enjoyed the twisted logic and unique sence of humor that I found in Lewis Carroll's Alice tales, the only problem I encountered was that some of the jokes required information that was no longer common knoledge. For example: when Alice continually misquoted the old English nursery rhymes I found myself wondering what the actual versions were, information that every child in Victorian England could have easily told me but that has since been lost to obscurity. After reading through this book I found the answers to all my original questions as well as many that I never considered asking. At first I thought that the commentary would strip the original work of its character and reduce it to a lifeless shadow. I found that the commentary did exactly the opposite, in a surreal way it made the book even more entertaining to read. The incredible detail of the commentary and the wide range of topics covered made the comments themselves seem part of the insane illogic that pervades the realms of wonderland and looking glass house. This does not mean that the coments themselves are insane or illogical, on the contrary they are all intresting and many offer new insights into the books, what makes the commentary so entertaining is how the story of "exactly 7 and one half" Alice is juxtaposed with comments on how the structure of the plot relates to physic and Robert Oppenheimer. Altogether I found the Annotated Alice to be a wonderful read and a gorgeous book which I recomend to anyone who enjoyed the original tales.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Master of Nonsense 14 janvier 2002
Par Bryan A. Pfleeger - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
The Annotated Alice provides a treasure chest of information on the two Alice books and on the man, Lewis Carroll who was responsible for their creation.
Martin Gardner provides annotations throughout the texts of both Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There. Gardner's annotations help explain the inside jokes and mathematical and linguistic puzzles that fill the stories.
Reading the Alice books as an adult is quite a different experience than it was as a child. The books' complexity really stands out on a careful reading. In fact, what are generally regarded as children's stories can be amazingly frustrating to read due to the complexity of the language and the almost constant stream of puns that are sometimes lost on modern audiences. One must remember that the stories are told purely for fun. Unlike other Victorian children's literature one gets no morals, plot development, or character development here. Alice is a yound child who stays a young child throughout her adventures. She neither matures or learns anything from her adventures.
This is a very nice volume in its own right. It contains complete authoritative texts of both books and includes the supressed episode "The Wasp in the Wig." The original Tenniel illustrations are crisp and clear. The only difficulty is that the annotations are placed on the same page as the text in a small column that sometimes supplies more information than the text itself. The annotations themselves range from the definitional to the clearly eccentric. One can read all of them or only the ones that he or she is interested in.
On the whole this is an excellent volume well worth the effort to read if one has any interest in the world of nonsense literature.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 What Do You Mean, Nonsense? 21 avril 2006
Par James Paris - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
This is the ONLY version of the Alice in Wonderland stories worth having. Lewis Carroll was a remarkably allusive chap -- and a mathematician to boot -- so you need a vade mecum to guide yourself through the bulrushes. Martin Gardner serves admirably for this purpose.

Without Gardner's help, I would never have known that mock turtle soup was actually made with veal (and that's why John Tenniel drew the Mock Turtle with the head, hind hoofs, and tail of a calf). And now I think I know why a raven is like a writing desk ("because it can produce a few notes, tho they are very flat; and it is never put with the wrong end in front"). Also, now I know the REAL text of the nursery rhyme "You Are Old, Father William."

This is the best edition to get because -- let's face it -- you WILL read the Alice stories more than once. And very likely others in your household will do the same. The real reason, as the Cheshire Cat says: "We're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A treasure for any Alice/Carroll fan! 21 février 2006
Par Michael Briscoe - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
This is an amazing piece of literature; That was the best I can do for an intro for my review! First of all it includes the unabridged versions of Alice's Adventures in wonderland and Through the looking glass (including an unpublished chapter), Original artwork by Tenniel, journal entries and letters either written to or from Carroll, and much more! The annotations help the reader better understand the satirical and metaphorical style of Carroll's writings, as well as actual people/events that he modeled his characters off of, not to mention an analysis on the mathematical theory and complex puns that may have been looked lightly passed at the first time reading. This book even includes

an entire chess strategy hidden in Through the Looking Glass...I really have no idea how to express how great of a product this is rather than tell you the content is never-ending! This is a great addition whether your fascinated by Lewis Carroll, Literature in general, Curious to see what he meant, or just looking for a fictional piece of nonsence to read to your children, this book is a must-have!
