Bruno's Revenge and Other Stories
Sylvie and Brunois a novel for children by Lewis Carroll published in 1889. The work evolved from his short story "Bruno's Revenge, " published in 1867 in Aunt Judy's Magazine. With its sequel, Sylvie and Bruno Concluded (1893), it was his final work for children.
The novel has two main plots; one set in the real world at the time the book was published (the Victorian era), the other in the fictional world of Fairyland. While the latter plot is a fairytale with many nonsense elements and poems, similar to Carroll's most famous children's book Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, the story set in Victorian Britain is a social novel. The French philosopher Gilles Deleuze termed Sylvie and Bruno "a masterpiece which shows entirely new techniques compared to Alice and Through the Looking-Glass."
Charles Lutwidge Dodgson better known by the pseudonym Lewis Carroll (1832 - 1898), was an English author, mathematician, logician, Anglican deacon and photographer.
