Alice dint’ ’o Paese d’ ’e Maraveglie è nu cunto ’e ll’està, prubbecato ’a Lewis Carroll (Charles Lut­widge Dodgson) p’ ’a primma vota ’int’ ’o mese ’e luglio d’ ’o 1865. Nu cuófeno d’ ’e perzunagge e de ll’avventure dint’a chistu libbro tèneno a cche fa’ cu nu mazzo ’e carte. Attra­vierzo ’o specchio e chello c’Alice ce truvaie è nu cunto d’ ’o vierno, che Carroll prubbecaie p’ ’a primma vota a decembre 1871. Dint’a chisto sicondo cunto ’e perzunagge ’e ll’avven­ture girano attuorno a na partita ’e scacche. L’eroina ’e tutt’e dduie ’e libbre è Alice Liddell, ’a figlia d’ ’o Decano d’ ’a Christ Church, a Oxford, addó Dodgson faceva ’o prufessore ’e matemateca. Cu tutto ch’Alice Liddel era nata ’o 1852, vint’anne doppo ’e Dodgson, essa cumpare dint’a tutt’e dduie ’e libbre comm’a na piccerella ’e sette anne, l’aità ch’essa teneva quanno Dodgson ’a ncuntraie p’ ’a primma vota. Se capisce da ’e ppuisie a ll’inizio e â fine d’ ’o libbro che Carroll era assaie affeziunato a Alice Liddell. Â fine d’ ’o libbro se trova l’episodio «scartato» «’O Vespone cu ’a perucca», che ô pprincipio avev’ ’a essere na parte ’e Attravierzo ’o specchio. John Tenniel, ch’êva fatto ’e designe d’ ’e pprimme edizione ’e tutt’ ’e duie libbre, nun se vulette cura’ ’e chist’episodio e accussì isso fuie luvato ’a miezo. ’E ffigure sbrennente ca mo ornano ’stu capitulo so’ state designate ’a Ken Leeder, cu o stile ’e Tenniel, l’anno 1977. Attravierzo ’o specchio cuntene cchiù juoche ’e parole e paraduosse logeche ’e chille d’Alice dint’ ’o Paese d’ ’e Maraveglie. E pecchesto è nu libbro pe perzone grosse cchiù ’e chillo ’e primma.

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is a summer tale published by Lewis Carroll (Charles Lutwidge Dodgson) for the first time in July 1865. Many of the characters and adventures in that book have to with a pack of cards. Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There is a winter tale, which Carroll first published in December 1871. In this second tale, the characters and adventures are based on the game of chess. The heroine of both books is Alice Liddell, daughter of the Dean of Christ Church, Oxford, where Dodgson was a tutor in mathematics. Although Alice Liddell was born in 1852, twenty years later than Dodgson, she appears in both books as a little girl of seven, the age she was when Dodgson met her for the first time. It’s clear from the poems ad the beginning and end of the book that Carroll was very fond of Alice Liddell. At the end of the book you will find the “suppressed” episode “The Wasp in a Wig”, which was originally intended to be part of Through the Looking-Glass. John Tenniel, who drew the pictures in the first edition of the two books, did not care for this episode, and it was therefore omitted. The splendid picture which graces this chapter was drawn in Tenniel’s style by Ken Leeder in 1977. Through the Looking-Glass contains more word-play and logical paradoxes than does Alice’s Adventures in Wonder­land. In consequence it is more a book for adults than the earlier work.
