Sample text

But the Duchess is like Alice; each of them respects rank. So the “more humane” Duchess yields to the Queen of Hearts. Next, Alice meets two of the most incredible creatures in Wonderland; the Gryphon (Griffin) and the Mock Turtle (whose name comes from veal soup). The two creatures listen sympathetically to Alice’s story of her adventures in Wonderland. ” Alice quickly finds out the false nature of their initial sympathy. The Gryphon’s intense, selfish sorrow is revealed finally as being just a fancy, and the Mock Turtle’s sensitivity is a reflection of his fearful name--a reminder of his eventual fate as something’s or someone’s meal.

Thus, fantasy is transformed into memory; and any memory can seem real, and it will seem real, in its own way, to Alice, always. com Alice is reasonable, well-trained, and polite. ” Considered in this way, she is the perfect foil, or counterpoint, or contrast, for all the unsocial, badmannered eccentrics whom she meets in Wonderland. Alice’s constant resource and strength is her courage. Time and again, her dignity, her directness, her conscientiousness, and her art of conversation all fail her.

Alice’s constant resource and strength is her courage. Time and again, her dignity, her directness, her conscientiousness, and her art of conversation all fail her. But when the chips are down, Alice reveals something to the Queen of Hearts--that is: spunk! Indeed, Alice has all the Victorian virtues, including a quaint capacity for rationalization; yet it is Alice’s common sense that makes the quarrelsome Wonderland creatures seem perverse in spite of what they consider to be their “adult” identities.
