Carroll omaggia la nostra infanzia, così come Berrie la omaggia nella figura di Peter Pan.
Though I'm not a fan of the story, I still find this annotated version a GREAT piece of work! I'm definitely going to look for more annotated classics out there...
Should I be sorry I didn't read it when I was a child? Maybe. I would have probably dived more in Wonderland and felt the awe for the bizarre characters and situations. Maybe not. I couldn't have read it in English and I wouldn't have appreciated what I think is at the same time the best part of the book: the return to childhood and the importance of keeping alive the child inside us.
This said, Carroll is a precursor of psychedelia. I would love to see the Cheshire Cat singing "Alice in the sky with diamonds".
