Alice in WTFland

Rereading Alice's Adventures and Through the Looking Glass for a class I'm taking.  No idea what to write my essay about.  The story is so entrenched in our culture, as are critiques of it, that having something interesting and meaningful to say about the story seems impossible.  And I don't know if I even like it.

I did however decide I didn't like the way the project on my needles was going so I ripped it out and started over (take 3).  This time there's an element I don't like as much as I thought I would but I'm tempted to just keep going because I'm tired of starting over.


A paper discussing the reasons you don't like it might be an interesting take if there are some concrete reasons beyond "not my style". Being so entrenched in our culture, as you say, I'm not sure how many people would stand up and say "You know, I really don't care for this."

Good luck!
I'm considering that. ‘What is the use of repeating all that stuff,’ the Mock Turtle interrupted, ‘if you don’t explain it as you go on? It’s by far the most confusing thing I ever heard!’ This will probably be the focus and talking about how so many of the references and in-jokes can be missed by not knowing Victorian children's education conventions.
:-) I'd read that.
