Larissa Peluco Charles Lutwidge Dodgson is the real name of Lewis Carroll, which were his penname.

Carroll was born on January, 27th of 1832 at Cheshire, England.

He was an author, mathematician, logician, Anglican Deacon and photographer.

His most famous writings are Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865) and Trough the Mirror and what she saw there (1872) “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” is a book about a girl who pass though many adventures.
Alice was bored of sitting by her sister on a bank, when suddenly she saw a White Rabbit with pink eyes ran close by her. She noticed that the Rabbit was saying to himself that he was late, but she thought it was on her mind.
What made Alice scared was the fact that the Rabbit took a watch out of his waistcoat-pocket. So, she started to run (burning with curiosity) across the field and she saw the Rabbit popping down a large-hole under the hedge. She followed him.
And, with this begin this crazy story with many memorable characters and situations. 1903 191`0 1915 1931 1933 1949 1951 1966 1966 1966 1972 1976 1983 1983 1985 1988 1988 1999 2010 "Alice was beginning to get very rired of sitting bu her sister on the bank, and of havin 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?'" (p. 1) Presentation Complication/Development "(...) suddenly a White Rabbit with pink eyes ran close by her. There was nothing so very remarkable in that; nor did Alice thint i so very much out of the way to hear the Rabbit say to itself, 'Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be too late!' (...) but when the Rabbit actually took a watch out of its waistcoat-pocket, and looked at it, and the hurried on (...)" (p. 2) Climax There are more than one climax on the book, because of the various stories during the narrative which can be considered singulars. Each meeting of Alice with the others characters in Wonderland is unique. Upshot The upshot of 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' is when she arrived on the court of justice and during the judgment she started to grow up again and she was invited to leave the court because she was too big for the place.
The pack of cards started to attack her and suddenly she woke up back to the bank. 3rd person

"Down, down, down. There was nothing else to do, so Alice soon began talking again. 'Dinah'll miss me very much tonight, I should think!' (Dinah was the cat). (...)" (p. 4) It was a period of great political and intellectual effervescence. The colonizations were growing and the country was passing through an euphoric of the new technologies.
The book "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" represents many common aspects to the English culture in the Victorian Period. The inversion of sense in the book can be characterized as a criticism, considering that, in this period, England was a country where the rationality was frequently reinforced. Queen Victoria "There was a paradox about the Victorian era during which Dodgson lived. On the one hand it was conservative and formalized, but on the other it was progressive and dynamic.
Dodgson (Carroll) was already a creative mind and it was in this revolutionary environment that he allowed his imagination to ferment the fantastical ideas that would envolve into "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland"." (p. vii) Alice Rabbit

(p. 6)

"Soon her eye fell on a little glass box that was lying under the table: she opened it, and found in it a very small cake, on which the words 'EAT ME' were beautifully marked in currants" (p. 8) It is a categorization of literature that uses sensical and nonsensical elements to defy language conventions or logical reasoning.
The effect of nonsense is often caused by an excess of meaning, rather than a lack of it. Nonsense is often humorous in nature, although its humor is derived from its nonsensical nature, as opposed to most humor which is funny because it does make sense. The Queen of Hearts Caterpillar White Rabbit The time is psychological. It is a total transgression because, in the dream, the notions of time and space are entirely different.

The time isn't psychological in the sense of involuntary memory or stream of consciousness, but because this transgression is psychological, the dream is psychological.

Time in the case of the book just can be chronological when Alice is awake, and can only be marked on the real world and rational, which is not the case when Alice is Wonderland. Flat characters

Do cats eat bats?' and sometimes, 'Do bats eat cats?' for, you see, as she couldn't answer either question, it didn't matter which way she put it" (p. 4) "(...) she noticed that on of the trees had a door leading right into it. (...) And in she went.
Once more she found herself in the long hall, and close to the little glass table. 'Now, I'll manage better this time,' she said to herself, ad began by taking the little gold key, and inlocking the door that led into the garden" (p. 70) "She had not gone much farther before she came inside of the house of the March Hare, she thought it must be the right house, because the chimneys were shaped like ears and the roof was thatched with fur. It was so large a house, that she did not like nearer till she had nibbled some more of the left-hand bit of mushrrom, and raised herselft about two feet high (...)" (p. 60) Edith Liddle, Lorina Liddle and Alice Liddle "Please Ma'am, is this New Zealand or Australia?" (p. 3)

"For a minute or two she stood looking at the house, and wondering what to do next, (...)" (p. 50) "Alice was not much surprised at this, she getting so used to queer thing happening. While she was looking for the place where it have been, it suddenly appeared again" (p. 59) "Nobody seems to like her, down here, and I'm sure she's the best cat in the world! Oh, my dear Dinah! I wonder if I shall ever see you anymore! (...)" (p. 26) An aspect is that many times in Alice’s Adventures, the trouble is provided more from the language, full of contradictions, puns ad others figures languages: Carrol is master in (re)invent/adapt words.

We can pay attention to the origins of the words and for the process of styling language, which many things became perfectly intelligible, a great example of this is the episode of the melancholic speeches of Mock Turtle with the Gryphon, full of invented vocabulary.

So much that the poems of the book present an articulated relation with the narrative in two ways: one is the PARODY, this is the distorted imitation and comic of traditional English poems and songs from Victorian Period.
Another poem which appears in Alice’s Adventures, is the one from the tale of a the Mouse (chapter 3), é is a special type of poetry, very rare, although it exists since the Antique. Is a FIGURED poem, in which the verses are organized to compose figures.
Another thing that appears during the reading is some aspects that are related to logical and mathematical thing, because Carrol was extremely interesting in puzzles, especially logic problems. “The Hatter opened his eyes very wide on hearing this; but all he said was, ‘Why is a raven like a writing-desk?’” (p. 62)(…)“’No, I give it up,’ Alice replied: ‘what’s the answer?’’I haven’t the slightest idea,’ said the Hatter.” (p. 64)
“I’ll try if I know all the things I used to know. Let me see: four times five is twelve, and four times six is thirteen, and four times seven is—oh dear! I shall never get to twenty at that rate!” (p. 13) "However, at last she streched her arms round it as far as they would go, and broke off a bit of the edge with each hand" (p.44)
