    Of all of Lewis Carrolls works, Alices Adventures in Wonderland has a unique standing in the category of whimsical, nonsense literature.

    After hundreds of publications, films, and stage plays, some scholars have begun to fear that Alice has become "cold and monumental, like a classic tomb" say Gilbert K. Chesterton, of the novel (Gardener, 1960).
