Differentiated book• It has a historical context with research of the time-This book contains a historical context, where past events or the study and narration of these events are examined. The historical context refers to the circumstances and incidents surrounding an event. This context is formed by everything that, in some way, influences the event when it happens. A fact is always tied to its time: that is, to its characteristics. Therefore, when analyzing events that took place tens, hundreds or thousands of years ago, it is essential to know the historical context to understand them. Otherwise, we would be analyzing and judging what happened in a totally different era with a current perspective.Alice's Adventures Under Ground is the title that British writer, mathematician, logician and priest Anglican Lewis Carroll used to gather the extravagant stories told to a reverend friend of hers and to the three Liddell sisters, during a break from a boat excursion through the Thames River. The stories revolved around Alicia, a character presumably inspired by Alice Liddell, second of the three sisters, who was ten years old when the stories were first told. The oral account occurred on July 4, 1862, while the group took a break during the walk due to the prevailing heat, and took refuge for a few hours under the shade of haystacks near Godstow, in England
