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. It helps to appeal to older audiences and allows the adults to connect with Alice and other characters. Carroll put these tropes into the story to specifically make the book more intelligible for adults. While some adults would read a children’s book with little hidden meaning and tropes, more would prefer to read something with more depth. It allows for a feeling of understanding. When they read the book as a child and then again as an adult and see the differences and realize the depth, they have a newfound sense of
Edgar Allan Poe left the ending of most of his stories enigmatic and therefore, open to controversial interpretations. Many debate whether the endings are the result of insanity or of haunting. It is evident that “The Black Cat” ending is caused by insanity, based on multiple re-occurrences that happen to the narrator. Many situations from the story support this claim.
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. Two examples of this within Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland can be found within the tea party scene in chapter 7. This chapter depicts a Mad Hatter and his friends, the dormouse and March Hare all sitting around a “large” table, “but all three were all crowded together at one corner of it”. When Alice happen upon this area, she rather quickly seats herself and begins to speak, but is spoken to by the Hare who explains “it wasn’t very civil of you [Alice] to sit down without being invited”. This is the first sign of the strange Victorian Etiquette that not only is there a specific way to approach a table and begin a conversation, but also the insignificant role children were expected to play – as silence was considered the most ‘correct’ way for them to be – especially in the presence of older company. This is reiterated as the dormouse tells his story about “three little sisters” and Alice constantly interrupts

Her Aunt Redd takes over the throne as Queen Alyss is cast out of Wonderland and has to find her way home to retake her throne. In this book there are many themes evident. One is making sacrifices for the good of others. It is shown through the characters Genevieve Heart, Hatter Madigan, and Alyss Heart.
A Toyota corrola from 1990 was the worst car back in the days but if you lost it you will be angry, the reason is because it cost you money and know you don’t even a car you should’ve appreciated when it was there and you have to appreciate everything you have.

Love is both uncontrollable and a conscious choice, meaning you’ll do anything to be with the person you love and deciding if you love them. It really depends on the person to decide if love is either uncontrollable or a conscious choice. In the story Kindred, by Octavia E. Butler, Rufus decides to love a black woman who then becomes a slave running away with her slave husband, Isaac. In this situation of the book Rufus can’t control his love for Alice, even though she was married to Isaac thus making the theme uncontrollable love. Octavia shows that in the book love is uncontrollable due to Rufus and Alice’s relationship, Rufus makes everything so difficult and he can’t help himself but to always want to be with Alice, therefore showing that their relationship is irresistible, fetching, wayward.
People share similarities in their daily lives every day.Maybe you and someone across the world are nearly similar.For instance, Alice Walker and Amir from The Kite Runner. Although they were both different, the two had very similar lives.As shown, both characters lost one of their parents, and both were misunderstood by their fathers. Otherwise, a difference is that they both share is that they never contradicted their fathers. Both stories have similarities and differences relating to the main character and were not all that different if you actually think about it.
Alice’s point of view toward life is to die instead of being a slave because she of the experience she had in the slavery time of America. Even though she was free until she married Issac, she experienced many terrible things

Alice is a lonely person because the author goes into detail about how she went to eight different schools and had no friends. For example, the text says, “ Alice was positive that her new school, lucky number eight would probably be as bad as the seven that had preceded
“In the tunnel where I was raped, a tunnel that was once an amphitheater, a place where actors burst from underneath the seats of a crowd, a girl had been murdered and dismembered. I was told this story by the police. In comparison, they told me I was lucky.” (Sebold 4)
Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, more commonly known by the pseudonym Lewis Carroll, wrote Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland in 1862. Carroll never meant to write a book; initially it was a short tale meant to entertain the three daughters of a close friend of Carroll. Three years later, in 1865, the book was published. Since then it has never been out of print, remaining an acclaimed work of fiction, read by children and adults everywhere. Six years after the first book’s release the follow up Carroll released a follow up, “Through the Looking-Glass”. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland can be described as a work of fantasy and literary nonsense. The story follows seven-year-old Alice, as she falls down a rabbit hole and enters a strange and absurd world
Alice in Zombieland is mainly about a girl named Alice and her life turns completely upside down after a car crash that destroyed her whole family, on her 16th birthday. Where she witnessed zombies killing her family after. After all the chaos from the accident, Alice attends to Asher High and meets her acquaintance at the time, Kat. Kat and Alice then gets invited to a party, where she then finds out about a group of 8 boys that stood out from everyone else. Kat told Alice everything about that group and specifically not to mess with Cole, the “leader”. As Alice begins to encounter and get closer to Cole a lot more, she finds out that she isn’t the only one that can see zombies. Alice then finds out that the reason that Cole’s gang was always not in school was because they were out fighting zombies with their powers. But then Justin Silverstone, comes along and then tries to convince Alice to join the Evil side, which was the Anima Industry where they control zombies instead of killing them. She say no but in the end she realized her father turned into a zombie, was on the Evil side, was with them.
Is Alice naive? Alice is naive, because she boasts about what she learns. Even though the facts are incorrect, she does not like to get ordered around or corrected, and tries to resolve that by ordering others around. She boasts about what she knows to some characters world. She is not good at finding friends or trying get them.
This because she is a capricious protagonist who can be perceived as utterly, unstable and unreliable. In one passage she cries and feels pity for herself, and in the following she expresses maternal compassion and care for others. Alice’s constant changes in size are puzzling for her. She seems to struggle in order to comprehend her identity, but the various oscillations in size and in life phases cause considerable confusion on her. The concept of identity can be also associated to an adolescent’s socio-emotional development. 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. But if I’m not the same, the next question is, Who in the world am I? Ah, that’s the great puzzle!”. It is however true that Alice has created these events and these characters in her dream world and they don’t necessarily symbolize her emotional condition. They can simply be figments of her imagination and constitute a natural response to her confusion about adulthood and growing up. The
