  • There has always been a debate about it. A lot of people think it is about a girl on acid. Other people think it is a totally innocent story. Lewis Carrol never actually explained it. I personally think it is about a girl on drugs!

  • I think Lewis Carroll was on drugs when he wrote it, but I tend to believe that it's about a girl with an overactive imagination who withdraws into her own world as her way of dealing with things. She may even be delusional to the point of believing these people/places to be real, but they're all her own elaborate defense mechanism against a world she doesn't understand. That's my take.

    My oldest daughter's name is Alice. :) :)

  • This is just a short definition from Wikipedia, but you get the idea: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is an 1865 novel written by English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll.[1] It tells the story of a girl named Alice who falls down a rabbit hole into a fantasy world (the Wonderland of the title) populated by peculiar and anthropomorphic creatures. The tale plays with logic in ways that have given the story lasting popularity with adults as well as children.[2] It is considered to be one of the best examples of the literary nonsense genre,[2][3] and its narrative course and structure have been enormously influential,[3] especially in the fantasy genre.

  • I have always thought is was about the world viewed from a small child. Children have such imaginations that at times they are wildly weird and funny and sooo off the wall. Children also use their imaginations when dealing with some heavy stuff in life.
