    Critical reputation of Alice in Wonderland

    I'm curious about how critics appraise Alice in Wonderland today? Is it regarded as a great novel, one of the 100 greatest or just a popular classic?

    I don't know about it being regarded as a great novel, and as I am not a critic or an academic in English literature, I cannot say how it is critically regarded. I think it is regarded as regarded as great children's literature on one level, and as a source of great paradoxical quotes on another.
    According to Aldous Huxley, D.H. Lawrence once said that Balzac was 'a gigantic dwarf', and in a sense the same is true of Dickens.
