When the Queen sees the Cheshire Cat, she wants to cut off the Cat's head too. But there's a problem. The Cheshire Cat hasn't got a body What strange things happen to Alice, in Wonderland? And how will she get back home again? Charles Dodgson was born in He went to Oxford University and then he was a teacher there.

He was a quiet man and did not talk to people easily. He wrote Alice in Wonderland in For him, Alice in Wonderland was not an important book, so he did not use his name for the book. He used the name Lewis Carroll. But the book sold very well and it was quickly very famous. At that time, children's books always tried to teach something.

Lewis Carroll did not try to teach anything. He only wanted to tell a wonderful story. Carroll wrote a second story about Alice in He died in Today, Alice in Wonderland is one of the most famous children's stories in the world.

Having planted that seed of understanding within viewers, the audience has a point of reference to fall back on.

This, however, does not occur until chapter ten, near the end of the story. Up until this point, Alice was the only character who vocalized confusion. The idea of nonsense is an underlying theme in both stories. Rather than try and fight society no matter how absurd, one will either prevail in the struggle or succumb to the rules around them. Alice simply accepts the fact she is not going to receive an acceptable answer because she is in a nonsensical world.

It is not until they have been in the boat for quite some time when Alice finally snaps at the Sheep for an answer.

Alice in Wonderland Knitting Pattern PDF

This is only after the Sheep keeps asking her for items and she almost falls out of the boat. Due to the breakdown of communication between them, Alice is rather frazzled.

In both stories, other characters question the meanings of words, too, in order to draw the readers attention to the usages of phrases. In Wonderland and Looking Glass Land, words are ambiguous and often have double meanings.

Alice could not be anyone else, except herself, but due to the circumstances of Wonderland she is unsure of who she is connected to where she is. The label misrepresented the item and its contents.


In this instance, Carroll provided a certain anticipation that was not met. Thus, when entering a fictitious world, readers should not have preconceived notions or expectations. Alice can look all around her, but not at the same time, thus she cannot technically see everything.

Apparently, the Red Queen can remember things that have not occurred yet, and assumes all the other characters have this ability. This type of ability does not make sense in the real world. Unless the Queen were thought to be a psychic, she should not have this special skill. A reader must understand the concept of yesterday, today, and tomorrow, as well as the meaning behind the capitalized words.

In this instance, the reader is unsure if the characters can ever eat jam because if they cannot eat tomorrow, did not have it yesterday, and it is nor allowed today, there does not seem to be a case in which it is legal to eat jam.

When Tweedledee and Tweedledum attempted to tell Alice a story to teach her the dangers of curiosity, however, they could not even decide on the proper name of the tale. Therefore, everything in Wonderland and the Looking Glass Land are subject to vagueness. When the baby turned into a pig, Alice was baffled, there was no reason for such a change, but it occurred.

Wonderland and Looking Glass Land cause confusion in order for the reader to question the logic behind such incidents. As Lacan addressed, people become socialized and develop certain expectations.

In this instance, the Mad Hatter must hold a celebration every day, making the concept rather lackluster.

A celebration is meant to be a rare occasion, something that does not happen often. Thus, having a party every day makes the concept obsolete.

If every day is special then no day is special. In the sequel, Alice in Wonderland, Humpty Dumpty addresses the idea of an unbirthday. The word unbirthday can be easily understood by readers without much explanation or provided context. Alice decided they were both at fault even though the Walrus ate many more oysters.

Time is not a thing, but a person. Thus, there is no stability in any sense. Angela Hart having the opposite meaning Dictionary. Pairing the prefix un with the word birthday, the ambiguity of the word is created on a basic level of language because no such word exists in the English language. The Mad Hatter is not considered angry as mad can sometimes imply, but insane, invoking a secondary meaning of the word. The Queen makes a declaration, but her subjects ignore her command, rendering her position as queen insignificant.

Both characters can be called mad, but for different reasons. Carroll manipulates the meaning of words, causing confusion within the reader. Thus, the person taking part in the story finds themselves asking similar questions, should the word be it or what?

In this instance, the reader questions the definition being offered. Grammar is thought to be a rigid structure that needs to be learned by anyone who reads and writes. For Carroll to include dialogue discussing the nature of grammar, as well as his own stylistic elements, the reader cannot help but question the importance of language. Carroll removed the societal constructs, allowing the words to take on new meanings and uses.

Similar to the Red Queen, Humpty Dumpty did not find her response to be acceptable. In order to communicate a precise answer, one must choose their words carefully. The Red Queen poses several questions to Alice, which cause her much confusion.

Fiddle-de-dee is a made up word, thus there is no translation for it.

Thus, the word itself is incapable of being defined or used in any precise manner. The name Mad Hatter was written with this cultural understanding in mind. By having the Queen and Alice use this word multiple times during their conversation, the reader has to then question their own understanding of fiddle-de-dee and acknowledge this made up word as an actual word. Contextualizing Meanings During a tea party with the Mad Hatter and several other characters, Alice experiences their complete lack of manners.

Upon stumbling across the Mad Hatter and his two friends, Alice finds herself across from a large table with dozens of empty chairs. His lack of warmth made Alice feel upset and confused.

Why would he have all these place settings around the table if he was not open to guests? So, Alice felt entitled to sit down, even though she was not invited. Rather than believe a mouse chooses not to speak to her, Alice comes to the conclusion the mouse does not speak English. Alice reaches this conclusion because all of the other animals in Wonderland have the ability to speak. Back in her world, Alice talks to her cat, Dinah, but she never responds nor does she expect Dinah to.

Due to Wonderland providing an expectation that animals can converse with her, Alice refuses to believe the mouse cannot speak.

Alice uses a real world example to explain an unreal situation or at least provide context for the event taking place.

Most people have a point of reference when they think of a stairwell. A pivotal point in Alice in Wonderland occurs in the courtroom, when Alice finally recognizes that the world before her lacks order and needs order at the same time.

As most people are aware, the verdict comes first in a hearing then the sentencing occurs shortly thereafter. For someone to be given a punishment without knowing if they are thought to be innocent or guilty, and to what degree, is absurd. Her history lessons may have been boring, but her schedule and classes provided a sense of security and acceptable expectations.

Without standards, Alice is completely dumbfounded. She acts an authority figure telling Alice how to speak and think. After this moment, anytime Alice came across flowers, she expected them to be able to speak. But, alas, this was not the case. In this sense, Alice could be trying to define herself in relation to the real.

Angela Hart While structure may stifle creativity, or so some believe, it offers an unchanging framework people can refer back to. In this manner, Carroll demonstrates that order and socialization can be a good thing.

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland PDF Summary

Alice had just been in jeopardy with the Red Knight, only to be saved by the White Knight. On their journey to the next part of the chessboard, he sings a song to Alice to make her feel better and celebrate their quest to reach the eighth square of the chessboard.

The song occurs to foster feelings of warmth, allowing Alice, and the reader, to feel at ease. The Mouse offers to tell his tale to Alice, who was very interested at first. The first tale refers to his story, while the second tail is in reference to his actual physical tail, which all mice have. The words in the story are read as though they were a tail trailing behind a mouse as it moved.

Due to the words and circumstances in Wonderland constantly evolving, Alice cannot develop a baseline or precedent to work from. Similarly, the reader is constantly caught off guard with the story. Aside from the poem looking like a physical tail, it is also written in tale rhyme, which is a repetition of sounds Garner The story itself addresses how a dog tried to act as the judge, jury, and executioner for the Mouse.

The Mouse holds a grudge against the dog, having unresolved feelings towards him for the unfair actions he took. The story is trying to convey that there should be fairness and justice in the world.

Sadly, the story does not resonate with Alice, who is confused and bored by the Mouse. If she had listened to his tale, she may have avoided her own trial. There is a fluidity and musicality to the language allowing the reader to follow the story with ease. In novels, readers have come to expect a dialogue and scenes to be written in a certain format.

Even the first novels adhered to certain standards to allow reader understanding. Upon further analysis different animals may represent different races or countries of origin for people. Thus the Mouse hating dogs and cats may be representative of a minority fearing a world superpower; i.

Nazis despising the Jews.

In the poem, Jabberwocky is written in the book with inverted text, facing the opposite way, making it impossible for the reader to understand Carroll Figure Two. Interestingly, Carroll wanted to invert every mention of the Jabberwocky, but later decided to only reverse this single passage Garner The reader becomes acutely aware of the fact everything is backwards in Looking Glass Land.

Humpty Dumpty adds context to the Jabberwocky poem chapters after it is first introduced providing context after the fact. The Jabberwocky poem may not have been written to make sense. Since seven years old, she may not have known how to construct a well-written poem, this the Jabberwocky poem, being a figment of her imagination, represents this lack of knowledge.

Also, Carroll included made up words in Jabberwocky that were not intended to be comprehendible: beamish, brillig, bandersnatch, franjous, chortled, galumphing, mimsy, mome rath, slithy, snicker-snack, and tove are just a few of the nonsensical word choices.

Alice remains unaffected by her journey, but the Looking Glass Land operates in an unreal way.

Chapter Three: The Caucus Race and a Long Tale Alice manages to swim out of the sea of tears and joins a group of animals who have done the same. They seem to face a new problem now: how to effectively get dry again. A Dodo suggests a Caucus-Race — which, essentially, means running around in circles until nobody wins. Unfortunately, Alice loses all of her newfound friends — mostly, small animals and birds — the minute she starts talking about the exploits of her cat named Dinah.

For some reason, the White Rabbit confuses Alice with his maidservant, Mary Ann, and he orders her to go into the house and retrieve the fan and the gloves. However, once Alice gets inside the house, she starts growing once again and gets stuck inside. The Rabbit and his animal friends try to get her out by throwing pebbles at her and — interestingly — the plan works: the pebbles turn into cakes, and once Alice eats them, she shrinks again.

Chapter Five: Advice from a Caterpillar Alice goes into the woods, and there she meets a blue Caterpillar. The Caterpillar is smoking a hookah and acts a bit rudely.

One side enlarges her, and the other shrinks her.If you do not charge anything for copies of this eBook, complying with the rules is very easy. When she eats the left side of the mushroom, she grows large; the right side has the reverse effect.

This is the driest thing I know. Alice in the Room of the Duchess. There were doors all 'round the hall, but they were all locked; and when Alice had been all the way down one side and up the other, trying every door, she walked sadly down the middle, wondering how she was ever to get out again. Thus, having a party every day makes the concept obsolete.
