Curiouser and Curiouser!: Exploring Wonderland with Alice

Since its publication in 1865, Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland has become a cultural icon that continually influences and inspires literature, film, music, theater, fashion, and even theme park rides. Fans of the story and scholars of children's literature will enjoy this online exhibit that journeys through 150 years of Alice, including various editions, adaptations, illustrations, and derivatives. Readers can go down the rabbit hole by clicking the links in the left sidebar at the page linked above. The adventure begins with considerations of fairy tales and other genres that preceded Carroll's book. The section The Mouse's Tail/Tale shows examples of Carroll's use of "patterned poetry" (a typographical effect) in his work. Visual art enthusiasts will appreciate the early-edition illustrations featured in the Interpretive Illustrations section. For educators, the About the Exhibit page includes an Educational/Curricular Materials section with classroom activities, materials, and a slide presentation (downloadable through Google Drive). This virtual exhibit presents a selection of materials from the 2015 physical exhibit at the Hatcher Graduate Library at the University of Michigan. Most of the items featured in the exhibit come from its Special Collections Library Children's Literature Collection.
