Published in 1865, «The Adventures of Alice in Wonderland» is a novato by Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, better known as Lewis Caroll. Professor of mathematics at Oxford University, the writer began writing his book after a boat trip (July 4, 1862) with the three daughters Liddell: Lorina, Alice and Edith. Between story and satire, the adventures of the young Alice are the occasion to mock her contemporaries and the scientific theories of the time. Some assumptions would require that the character of the Dodo be a staging of the author himself, his name coming from the stuttering of Dodgson.
Less well known, «The Adventures of Alice in Wonderland» has a suite called «On the other side of the mirror». Moreover, the first part has 97 translations in the world and a record number of 1513 editions.
