Still Lost

December 2, 2009

Why are we even trying to make sense of the craziness that is Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland?

  • Nothing makes any sort of logical sense at all.
  • Most conversations consist of gibberish. Nothing is ever explained during the story.
  • Even after finishing the story, nothing seems to make sense.

Almost all the elements of the story could be done away with, and the story would not suffer at all.

The mock turtle, the Queen, the catapillar, all the parts of the story are mostly unnecesarry to the story. In fact, the story really has no substance at all. There is no resolution. Maybe there is more of an ending in Through the Looking Glass, but I have not read it. Why even write a story if there is not really much of a story?

The only things it could be is the obvious, a children’s story, or it could be nothing but a collection of morals and lessons. It is not a story for the sake of story telling. I also think that it is not just a children’s book. I think Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is just a collection of morals and life lessons with a coat of children’s story paint on it.
