Alice's Adventures in Wonderland / Through the Looking Glass, and What Alice Found There

Alice lives an ordinary life until the day she follows the White Rabbit down down down a rabbit hole Sh. I think that the failure not only of Children s Literature as a whole but of our very concept of children and the child s mind is that we think it a crime to challenge and confront that mind Children are first protected from their culture kept remote and safe and then they are thrust incongruously into a world that they have been told is unsafe and unsavory and we expected them not to blanchIt has been my policy that the best literature for children is not a trifling thing not a simplification of the adult or a sillier take on the world Good Children s literature is some of the most difficult literature to write because one must challenge engage please and awe a mind without resorting to archetypes or life experienceOnce a body grows old enough we are all saddened by the thought of a breakup We have a set of knowledge and memories The pain returns to the surface Children are not born with these understandings so to make them understand pain fear and loss is no trivial thing The education of children is the transformation of an erratic and hedonistic little beast into a creature with a rational method by which to judge the worldA child must be taught not to fear monsters but to fear instead electrical outlets pink slips poor people and lack of social acceptance The former is frightening in and of itself the latter for complex internal reasons I think the real reason that culture often fears sexuality and violence in children is because they are such natural urges We fear to trigger them because we cannot control the little beasts We cannot watch them every minuteSo to write Children s Literature an author must create something complex and challenging something that the child can turn over in their mind without accidentally revealing some terrible aspect of the world that the child is not yet capable of dealing with Carroll did this by basing his fantasies off of complex impersonal structures linguistics and mathematical theory These things have all the ambiguity uncertainty and structure of the grown up world without the messy human partsThis is also why the Alice stories fulfill another reuirement I have for Children s Lit that it be just as intriguing and rewarding for adults There is no need to limit the depth in books for children because each reader will come away with whatever they are capable of finding Fill an attic with treasures and the child who enters it may find any number of things put a single coin in a room and you ensure that the child will find it but nothing Of course we must remember that nothing we can write will ever be strange or disturbing to a child than the pure unadulterated world that we will always have failed to prepare them for However perhaps we can fail a little less and give them Alice Not all outlets are to be feared despite what your parents taught you In fact some should be prodded with regularity and if you dare not a little joy

E suddenly finds herself in an enchanted world surrounded by zany creatures like the Mad Hatter the Duc. Once she remembered trying to box her own ears for having cheated herself in a game of crouet she was playing against herself for this curious child was very fond of pretending to be two people If I ever had to choose to be another literary person than my beloved soulmate Don uixote it would have to be Alice in Wonderland Why would I need to be another character than the one and only Don Well it is good to have a backup if you are asked to come to a masuerade as a favourite book character a not completely unlikely risk and side effect of my profession and you realise that your blonde hair and the emphasis on blue dresses in your wardrobe makes that a much natural choice than the Medieval male dresscode of La ManchaOn the other hand Alice is a perfect complement to the Don in many ways While he sets out to give the ordinary world some magic she dives into Wonderland to make it sparkle with her common sense approach to madness A perfect pair those two characters In times like these they are needed than ever to fight the windmills or Jabberwockys of modern craziness As coffee is a means of survival to me and I like the idea of drinking it out of a mug featuring an illustration of a famous tea party as nonsensical as most but fun I once went to London and bought myself a Mad Hatter mug the handle nicely formed like one of those keys Alice had such trouble with The uote on the back of the mug has helped me along with the caffeine and a sense of humour as dark as my no milk and no sugar coffee survive many a lesson with teenagersIf you knew Time as well as I do said the Hatter you wouldn t talk about wasting itI know for a fact that this book can be reread as many times as needed to figure out your own identity and level of madness without any waste of time whatsoever Who am I then Tell me that first and then if I like being that person I ll come up if not I ll stay down here till I m someone else I can almost give the same promise that Milo got in The Phantom TollboothRESULTS ARE NOT GUARANTEED BUT IF NOT PERFECTLY SATISFIED YOUR WASTED TIME WILL BE REFUNDED

Hess and the Cheshire Cat Alice is delighted to find that nothing in Wonderland is the least bit ordina. Curiouser and curiouser edition This is the annotated edition collecting both novels in the Alice book series Alice s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass and What Alice found There WE RE ALL MAD HERE Begin at the beginning This was technically a re reading since I ve already read both novels previously the key difference here was that this is an annotated edition which includes a comprehensive section at the end of each chapter with tons of notes revealing behind the scenes detailing moments in the life of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson aka Lewis Carroll the real meaning of scenes the real inspirations for several of the characters in both novels historic meaning in the Victorian England of casual expressions that got outdated nowadays studies in the metrics of the poems included in the novels etc I don t think Then you shouldn t talk It was a curiouser and curiouser reading experience since this was my first annotated edition of any book and I believe that if you want to engage into this sort of books it s advisable having read the regular version of the novel first since reading all those annotations after each chapter it s a kinda of braking effect since depending the chapter you ll invest almost the same time reading the explanations than the chapter itself so you lose a great deal of the rhythm of your reading therefore if you haven t read the story before you may not enjoying as much as it was supposed to be It s a poor sort of memory that only works backwards Of course almost all the information was made by scholars in the Lewis Carroll s works doing assumptions and best guesses since the author was already gone when this annotated edition began to be conceived Therefore it s a priceless access to get a better understanding of the novels at the era when they were published BUT sometimes I ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast you can t fully take without a doubt the exposed explanations since you can t ask the author any to validate if their interpretations are truly accurate So as many things in life it s up to you if you wish to believe them I can t go back to yesterday because I was a different person then And as those scholars mentioned at some momento of the annotations that sometimes we are so obssessed to find a secret meaning behind any single uote any single character any single scene etc and while it s evident that some uotes characters and scenes have indeed a double significance some of them are merely things needed to keep flowing the narrative as simply as that without any conspiration or secret plot I m not strange weird off nor crazy my reality is just different from yours so don t get too deep into the annotations section and simply enjoy this wonderfully mad tale about a little girl who fell down into a rabbit s hole and she kept finding curiouser and curiouser things even through the looking glass and go on till you come to the end then stop
