Example text

Her dream, in effect, ends just before a nightmare begins. ” 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.

In Alice’s case, good social breeding is more important than her natural disposition. But if Alice leaves Wonderland without acquiring any lasting, truly worthwhile knowledge, neither can she give any wisdom to the creatures whom she has met there. Nature, in each case, sets limits on the ability to assimilate experiences. In the Caucus-race, for instance, the race depicts the absurdity of democracy. Yet, Alice’s critical attitude-a product of her class education--is also satirized. The object of the race is to have everyone dry off; so it doesn’t matter who wins or loses, and clearly the outcome of the race is irrelevant.
