In an effort to reintroduce academic interest and studies into Lewis Carroll's late-life children's novel in two parts, this New Edition takes the unusual step of separating and abridging, with no appreciable loss of original text, Carroll's two intertwined narratives, of a children's fantasy 'in Fairyland', and an adult social romance'in Victorian England'. With an overall Scholarly Apparatus of Outline Life, Editor's Introduction and detailed Annotated Notes to all chapters, the lengthy fairytale is here followed and analysed in all its intricate meanderings, and with a goal of placing the tale within its celebrated author's time, place, culture and previous works. The question of Moral Stories in Nineteenth-Century Children's Literature, widely noted in accounts of Lewis Carroll, is touched upon in both Parts of the present double volume, and given a new emphasis. Attention is drawn to Dodgson-Carroll both as a Romantic and Logician, the two streams which formed his own 'perfectly balanced mind', of poet and mathematician, satirist and moralist.
