Alice in Waterland - Lewis Carroll and the River Thames in Oxford (Hardcover): Mark Johnstone Davies Alice in Waterland - Lewis Carroll and the River Thames in Oxford (Hardcover)

A world-famous Oxford story from a new angle: the essential role played by the River Thames in the creation of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass. It was on rowing trips with Alice Liddell and her sisters that Lewis Carroll (the Oxford don Charles Dodgson) invented many of the tales which were later incorporated into the books; it was on the riverbank on 4 July 1862 that Wonderland had its birth; and it was from particular incidents on or near the Thames that Carroll drew inspiration for some well-known episodes. Combining excerpts from Carroll's diaries and the 'Alice' books with contemporary images, memoirs, and fiction, Alice in Waterland sets the Oxford scene of the time (including the burgeoning Pre-Raphaelite movement) and sheds new light on the real individuals who inspired characters such as the Hatter, the Sheep, and the Red Queen. The book takes the reader on a literary journey of discovery along almost ten miles of the Thames near Oxford, in the company of the 'merry crew' of Lewis Carroll, Alice, and her sisters on the scenic and lively river of which they were all so fond.
