Amazon.com description: Product Description:

This Norton Critical Edition reprints the 1897 editions of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass and the 1876 edition of The Hunting of the Snark.

New to the Second Edition is "The Wasp in a Wig," a recently discovered episode Carroll deleted from Through the Looking-Glass, but which fits into the story in interesting ways. Each text is accompanied by ample explanatory notes.

"Backgrounds" reprints new selections from recent biographies of Carroll and from recent editions of his diaries and letters.

Our understanding of and appreciation for Carroll’s life and literature are deepened by new contributions from Anne Clark, Tony Beale, E. M. Rowell, and, most revealingly, Carroll himself.

"Criticism" retains seven seminal critiques from the First Edition while adding four important recent essays by Nina Auerbach, Roger Henkle, Robert Polhemus, and Donald Rackin.

A revised and updated Selected Bibliography is also included.
