Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is often a fairy tale written by the English mathematician, poet and writer Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll and published in 1865. It tells about a girl named Alice, who falls through a rabbit hole into an imaginary world inhabited by strange anthropomorphic creatures. The fairy tale enjoys steady popularity both in children and adults. The book is considered one of the best examples of literature in the genre of the absurd; it uses numerous mathematical, linguistic and philosophical jokes and allusions. The course of the narrative and its structure had a strong influence on art, especially on the genre of fantasy. "Alice in the Looking Glass" is a plot continuation of the work.
