Alicia in terra mirabili pdf
Alicia in Terra Mirabili: Alices Adventures in Wonderland in Latin by Lewis CarrollWhy do you want another copy of Alice in Wonderland when you already have at least three copies and other abbreviated versions? Well, it was really for the illustrations. I really like Helen Oxenburys work and here was a great collection of her work for $5 at the local markets....who could resist. OK, I havent read the story again. Actually, I never liked the story as a kid. Adults always seemed to be foisting it on me and I thought it was all very weird and unbelievable and full of tricky insider jokes for adults. I shared a flat (apartment) once, however, with a guy who was very keen on Alice in Wonderland and was always citing stuff from it ....like...Words mean precisely what I want them to mean ...neither more nor lessand....Would you please tell me which way I ought to go from here?....That depends a good deal on where you want to get to, said the Cat. I dont much care where ... said Alice. Then it doesnt matter which way you go, said the Cat. it It was only as an adult that I kind of got interested in the author who was a lecturer in Mathematics and logic at Christs College Oxford. He was Charles Dodgson who went under the pen name of Lewis Carroll. So the book is full of logical questions, paradoxes, illogical answers and mathematical quirks....... But Charles Dodgson seemed to have a rather unhealthy interest in young girls. I recall seeing a book of his that I think contained photos of young girls. (He became interested in photography and about 60% of his photos were of young girls. Seemed just slightly creepy to me.....but give him the benefit of the doubt. Maybe he just liked writing stories to entertain. He published Alice in Wonderland in 1865 and it became increasingly popular.
Anyway, thats not why I bought the book. I bought it for the illustrations and they really dazzle. Helen Oxenbury has a wonderful way with perspective and a slightly cartoonish drawing style that is perfectly suited to this particular book. There are some of her pencil sketches and a few watercolours combined with pencil backgrounds. All in all it works very well. I think she has captured the spirit of Alice rather well. In many of the versions Ive seen , Alice comes across as a rather bossy and determined little girl but her she is confident but sympathetic. And a rather likeable character from the drawings. Needless to say, she is a modernised Alice and, I think has much more appeal than the older tougher Alices.
A great version of the book.
