Summary
  • This volume tells the story of Alice Liddell (1852-1934), the real girl who inspired the children's classic Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll, whose protagonist Alice is said to be named after her. This biographical work, arranged in a scrapbook style, uses photographs, original artwork, and archival material to explore the real life and Victorian world in which Alice Liddell lived. Liddell became a celebrity who maintained her best qualities as she matured, and utilized her influence to help further the rights of women, and of people, in general. Liddell was a product of the Victorian upper classes, and had relationships with the elites and even with members of the royal family. Because of her connections, and her growing influence, she was able to work toward breaking down barriers for women in an era when such progressive societal advances were very difficult to achieve
  • "In the Victorian age, when few children escaped tradition, Alice Pleasance Liddell inspired the greatest children's story of all time, 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.' This book brought Alice and Lewis Carroll together for their lifetimes and forever. The story behind the story is a rich history of a very creative, curious and magnetic young girl who grew up to become a cultural icon and one of the most celebrated women of the last 100 years. It is a story of love, tragedy, duty, courage and loyalty to family and country--that will surprise and deeply move you. It will make you think again about what it means to inspire."--Page 4 of cover
