The first evidence of this occurring features in the first chapter succeeding her tumble.

Donald Rackin said “The texts were, moreover, replete with primal scenes and overpowering, symbolic renditions of classic Freudian tropes (a vaginal rabbit hole and a phallic Alice, an amniotic pool of tears, hysterical mother figures and impotent father figures, threats of decapitations [castration]…” These tropes are difficult, almost impossible, for children to understand. However adults are able to catch on to some of them. These tropes are a necessity because they allow for a more profound understanding of the story.
