La presente edición es, sin lugar a dudas, la más importante realizada hasta la fecha, pues a las dos obras maestras de L. Carroll -y a las no menos magistrales ilustraciones de Tenniel- han venido a unirse las notas y comentarios de Martin Gardner. El autor de esta edición anotada, columnista de Scientific American durante más de veinte años, matemático y ensayista original, era quizá, por su profesión y aficiones, la persona más apropiada para realizar esta labor, arrojando nueva y definitiva luz sobre un texto complicado pero delicioso. No en vano, Charles Dodgson (esto es, L. Carroll) fue también profesor de Lógica y Matemáticas, como el anotador, dejando en sus libros la huella inequívoca de su sutilísimo humor, entretejido de constantes combinaciones y variables imprevistas. A la calidad de los textos, y al meticuloso cuidado con el que ha realizado su traducción Francisco Torres Oliver, viene por último a unirse la magnífica presentación de los textos e ilustraciones. Creemos que el conjunto constituye por todo ello una edición auténticamente imprescindible.

About the author (1998)

Born in Daresbury, England,in 1832, Charles Luthwidge Dodgson is better known by his pen mane of Lewis Carroll. He became a minister of the Church of England and a lecturer in mathematics at Christ Church College, Oxford. He was the author, under his own name, of An Elementary Treatise on Determinants (1867), Symbolic Logic (1896), and other scholarly treatises which would hardly have given him a place in English literature. Charles Dodgson might have been completely forgotten but for the work of his alter ego, Lewis Carroll. Lewis Carroll, shy in the company of adults, loved children and knew and understood the world of the imagination in which the most sensitive of them lived. So he put the little girl Alice Liddell into a dream-story and found himself famous as the author of Alice in Wonderland (1865). Through the Looking Glass followed in 1871. In recent years Carroll has been taken quite seriously as a major literary artist for adults as well. His works have come under the scrutiny of critics who have explained his permanent attractiveness in terms of existential and symbolic drama: The Alice books dramatize psychological realities in symbolic terms, being commentary on the nature of the human predicament rather than escape from it. In addition to his writing, Carroll was also a pioneering photographer, and he took many pictures of young children, especially girls, with whom he seemed to empathize.

Martin Gardner is the author of more than seventy books on a vast range of topics including "Did Adam & Eve Have Navels?", "Calculus Made Easy", & "The Annotated Alice". He lives in Hendersonville, North Carolina.
