Kelly Schulze, Object Conservator, has finished completed the conservation on The Vine by Harriet Frishmuth (1880-1980) in the Alice Bimel Courtyard. Kelly finished removing loose corrosion products from the surface using a power washer, and removed the old wax coatings from the sculpture.

“...these days had never been as beautiful as these… each day a golden surprise” (2-4). In the short story “The Flowers”, surprise is the element that Alice Walker uses to portray the meaning. IT is at the heart of the meaning which is driven forward by imagery, setting, and diction. Walker takes her past experiences and uses them in her writings to make her story stronger.
This enjoyable novel is filled with nonsense and no real lesson to be learned. It is void of all obedience advice and the punishment for being naughty is non-existence. The situations are irrelevant and the characters make no sense, but that is the point. The book is trying to lock Alice’s childhood forever by adding nonsense. Carroll states in his introduction, “In gentler tones Secunda hopes there must be nonsense in it!”
Alice in Wonderland Societal Reading Victorian society demanded a specific role of civilians with strict expectations they always adhere to. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, more commonly recognised by his pen name, Lewis Carroll, is one author who questioned these expectations through the use of satire within his text Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Satirizing the rule and conventions of Victorian society is one manner in which Carroll subverts the nature of this time period by drawing specific attention to the worst aspects and proving how ridiculous they truly are.
The Alice books, translated into dozens of languages, “are quoted more than any other English work, after that of William Shakespeare” (Homes). Charles Dodgson, better known by his pseudonym Lewis Carroll, authored the first children’s books that did not have an overly moralistic nature. Furthermore, he legitimized the genre of nonsense in literature (Holmes). In addition to writing children’s books, Carroll also wrote poetry. A duality characterizes Lewis Carroll’s life and poetry: Charles Dodgson, the repressed, quiet mathematician and Lewis Carroll, the writer who wished to remain a child and live in Wonderland forever (Kelly 6).

Dodgson spent a lot of time going on picnics and walks with the Liddell girls and their governess. One of these special outings, unbeknownst to anyone, would give birth to the classic children’s tale Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. As he spun a tale of extraordinary happenings, using Alice’s name for that of the main character, she demanded it be written down and given to her. He complied to her request. What Lewis Carroll gave to that young girl would become a best seller classic.
THEME OF ISOLATION AND SEARCH FOR SELF IDENTITY The main plan of the story Alice in Wonderland is that the seek for self-identity and for one 's purpose within the world. We know, from the start of the story, that there 's a niche between Alice and her sister in terms archaic and interests. We are able to infer from the story that Alice has no peers, which she is in a very pre-adolescent stage with a special intuition that separates her from the others. Concisely, Alice in Wonderland is that the symbolic journey of a fille through a world that she is commencing to analyze and see otherwise.

Similarities and Differences Between The Book and Movie of Alice In Wonderland In 2010 a movie adaptation of Alice in Wonderland was released directed by Tim Burton, based on the 1865 novel Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. The movie adaptation made significant changes to the book, although they still have many similarities. They both share many symbolic elements and characters such as the Mad Hatter and the rabbit hole, and both have the theme of being lost between childhood and adulthood. They differ in that the movie has a more defined plot with a clear antagonist, but the book does not.
Alice’s encounters with the other characters in Wonderland push her to ponder about her own identity. For example in the Chapter II, after having experienced dramatic transformations in size by eating and drinking, she meets the White Rabbit in the hall. She asks herself, “I wonder if I’ve been changed in the night? Let me think: was I the same when I got up this morning? I almost think I can remember feeling a little different.
