Analysis of Animal Characters in "Alice in Wonderland" by Lewis Carroll - Why are animal characters so popular in children’s literature. Why do they tend to be either fierce or friendly.

Nonsense and Justice in Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland - ... As I mentioned earlier, Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, better known by his pseudonym Lewis Carroll, beside being an English author was a mathematician, logician, Anglican deacon and photographer . Carrol created the character of Alice to entertain a daughter of his good friend Dean of Christ Church, little girl named Alice Liddell. The story was first published in 1865. One of the key characteristics of Carroll's story is his use of language. Consequently, much of the nonsense in Alice has to do with transpositions, either of mathematical scale or in the scrambled verse parodies....   [tags: Lewis Carroll, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland] 724 words

George Babbitt of Sinclair Lewis' Babbitt - George Babbitt: Image of a Presbyterian        In Babbitt, Sinclair Lewis portrays religion as a corrupt business.  In fact, he emphasizes this by focusing on his main character George Babbitt.  George Babbitt is characterized as a businessman in Zenith.  He is a man preoccupied about his reputation and his image before the main leaders of the town he lives in.  Lewis creates a hypocritical figure for Babbitt through his reasons for being a Presbyterian.  He says that if you were to question Babbitt about his religion he would say,  "My religion is to serve my fellow men, to honor my brother as myself, and to do my bit to make life happier for one and for all"  (199).  Of course, if you heard this from Babbitt you would have the idea that Babbitt was a true Presbyterian.  Lewis says that if you were to persist with the same question Babbitt would then reply,  "I'm a member of the Presbyterian Church, and naturally, I accept its doctrines"  (199).  This would make Babbitt look even better.  Being from the Presbyterian Church, the richest church in Zenith, he would be a man well set with good morals.  However, Lewis points at G....   [tags: Lewis Babbitt Essays]

Superiority of Races in Sinclair Lewis' Babbitt - Superiority of Races in Babbit           Hatred, intolerance, prejudice, and narrow-mindedness are all terms that can be applied when describing someone who is a bigot.  By these terms George F. Babbitt, the protagonist in Sinclair Lewis' Babbitt, and many of his acquaintances are quite the bigots toward all those that appear different than he is especially immigrants and minorities in America.  The blame should not be placed squarely on these men's shoulders for possessing such hate filled beliefs, but their opinion of the matter is generated from the accepted notion, which had been approved of and passed down through the generations, that immigrants and minorities are far less superior than the "native" white men who have "always" lived in America.  The irony of this subject in the book is that although men of Babbitt's stature openly shared and joked with one another about their superiority to all other races, not one would ever admit that he was even by a small degree a bigot....   [tags: Lewis Babbitt Essays]

Conspicuous Consumption in Sinclair Lewis' Babbit - Conspicuous Consumption in Sinclair Lewis' Babbit      The idea of conspicuous consumption, or buying unnecessary items to show one's wealth, can be seen in Babbitt by Sinclair Lewis.  Lewis describes the main character of the book, George F. Babbitt, as a person who has his values and priorities all mixed up.  Babbitt buys the most expensive and modern material goods just to make himself happy and make people around his aware of his status.  He is more concerned about these items than about his wife or children and to him, "god was Modern Appliances" (Lewis 5).  Through Babbitt, Lewis is attempting to show how the average American person will do or buy anything, even if  unnecessary, only to show off and make peers think highly of him or her.  As seen in Babbitt, George wakes up to the "best of nationally advertised and quantitatively produced alarm-clocks, with all modern attachments" (3).  Babbitt is extremely satisfied to be awakened by this expensive clock because it raises his value to the world.  A regular alarm clock can do, but George Babbitt needs the top-of-the-line model to show off his wealth.  He, along with the rest of the citizens in the book, takes great value in his car, which to him was "poetry and tragedy, love and heroism" (22).  One must think that of his family and friends, not of a piece of metal sitting in the garage.  Babbitt continues his conspicuous consumption lifestyle by vowing to quit smoking and then going out and buying "the electric cigar lighter which he had coveted for a week" (51).  Therefore, Babbitt does not necessarily buy the lighter for himself, but to show to everyone around him that he has the money to buy it, and consequently feels superior to them.  The finest, most modern items inside the house are also of importance to Babbitt....   [tags: Lewis Babbitt Essays]

Many Victorian novelists highlight this mechanization of human beings, as it contributed to the identity crisis epidemic of the Victorian Era in which children were especially affected. In Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll uses the emphasis of facts in the Victorian education system, the likeliness of Victorian Society to discourage the use of the imagination, and the importance of ideal male and female roles of the Victorian citizen, imposed on children at a young age, to create Alice’s confused character analogous to the identity crisis of children during the Victorian era....   [tags: Alice Wonderland Lewis Carroll Essays]

Lewis Carroll - 	Of all of Lewis Carroll’s works, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland has a unique standing in the category of whimsical, nonsense literature. Much has been written about how this novel contrasts with the vast amount of strict, extremely moralistic children’s literature of the Victorian time Lewis Carroll lived in.

(Lewis, 1988, p.108). This eluding to the concept of the life-giving breath of God the Father is directly related to an area of the book of Genesis which states: "The Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being."
