Alice in Wonderland Critical Analysis - Alice in Wonderland belongs to the nonsense genre, and even if most of what happens to Alice is quite illogical, the main character is not. “The Alice books are, above all, about growing up” (Kincaid, page 93); indeed, Alice starts her journey as a scared little girl, however, at the end of what we discover to be just a dream, she has entered the adolescence phase with a new way to approach the mentally exhausting and queer Wonderland. It is important to consider the whole story when analyzing the growth of the character, because the meaning of an event or a sentence is more likely to mean what it truly looks like rather than an explanation regarding subconscious and Freudian interpretations...   [tags: Wonderland, Morton, logic]

Alice in Wonderland and the Mathematics Involved - The latter half of the nineteenth century became a time of evolution for different forms of mathematics such as symbolic algebra, Riemannian geometry, Boolean algebra , and quaternion calculus. "To him [Lewis Carroll], algebra was all about numbers," mathematician Keith Devlin explained. “But in the 19th century, people were developing all kinds of bizarre new algebras, where x times y was not equal to y times x.” (Devlin) While mathematicians knew that Carroll, a mathematician himself, was slipping numbers in to his classic, “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland,” the hidden math came as a surprise to many others....   [tags: Lewis Carroll, rational, math, language, limits]

Comparative Media: Alice in Wonderland - ... Not only that but it is some differences in what producers want to show than what the original writer wanted to. The animated movie, however, had more space than the novel to produce a vivid and engaging world with fascinating supporting characters. Because film doesn’t depend on words to create a scene or describe characters, there is more space for character develoment through action and dialogue.

Lewis Carroll Biography - Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, better known as Lewis Carroll, was heavily influenced by his father in a life of both curiosity and logic. Having literary works in both the mathematical or logical spectrum, as well as astonishingly creative pieces of literature, the Victorian writer decided to put the pseudonym "Lewis Carroll" as the author of his more outrageous works (Hudson 262).
