Alice instantly became a classic and has survived as one of the great books of literature for the simple reason that Carroll's world of nonsense had strange and complex relations with the world of sense. Alice has not only fascinated young readers, but some of the most sophisticated intellects of our time, including Edmund Wilson, W.H. Auden, Virginia Woolf, Alfred Whitehead and Bertrand Russell.
