Alice in Wonderland, is one of all the books we all know whether by reading or watching the movie based on the book, that we picked up quotes that we use in everyday life.
Alice has been part of the imagination in all children who have ever watched the movie. With the
“Begin at the beginning, and go on till you come to the end: then stop.”
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (commonly shortened to Alice in Wonderland) is an 1865 novel written by English mathematician Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll.
It tells of a girl named Alice falling through a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by peculiar, human like creatures.
It is considered to be one of the best examples of the literary nonsense genre.
Alice is feeling bored and drowsy while sitting on the riverbank with her older sister, who is reading a book with no pictures or conversations.
She then notices a White Rabbit wearing a waistcoat and pocket watch, talking to itself as it runs past.
She thus follows it down a rabbit hole, but suddenly falls a long way to a curious hall with many locked doors of all sizes.
A small key is found to a door too small for her to fit through, but through it she sees an attractive garden.
She then discovers a bottle on a table labelled “DRINK ME”, the contents of which when drank, shrinks Alice too small to reach the key, which is left on the table.
As the chapter closes Alice eats a cake with “EAT ME” written on it in currants.
The sea of tears becomes crowded with other animals and birds that have been swept away by the rising waters.
Alice and the other animals convene on the bank and the question among them is how to get dry again.
A Dodo decides that the best thing to dry them off would be a Caucus-Race, which consists of everyone running in a circle with no clear winner.
She eventually frightens all the animals away, unwittingly, by talking about her (moderately ferocious) cat.
Alice comes upon a mushroom; sitting on it is a blue Catepillar smoking a hookah.
The Caterpillar questions her and she admits to her current identity crisis, compounded by her inability to remember a poem.
Before crawling away, the caterpillar tells her that one side of the mushroom will make her taller and the other side will make her shorter.
She breaks off two pieces from the mushroom.
One side makes her shrink smaller than ever, while another causes her neck to grow, where a pigeon mistakes her for a serpent.
With some effort, Alice brings herself back to her normal height.
She then stumbles upon a small estate and uses the mushroom to reach a more appropriate height.
Alice becomes a guest at a “mad” tea party along with the March Hare, the Hatter, and a very tired Dormouse who falls asleep frequently, only to be violently woken up moments later by the March Hare and the Hatter.
The characters give Alice many riddles and stories, including the famous “Why is a raven like a writing desk?“.
Alice becomes insulted and tired of being bombarded with riddles and she leaves, claiming that it was the stupidest tea party that she had ever been to.
Alice leaves the tea party and enters the garden, where she comes upon three living playing cards painting the white roses on a rose tree red because The Queen of Hearts hates white roses.
A procession of more cards, kings and queens and even the White Rabbit enters the garden.
The Queen, a figure difficult to please, introduces her trademark phrase “Off with her head!”, which she utters at the slightest dissatisfaction with a subject.
Alice is invited (or some might say ordered) to play a game of croquet with the Queen and the rest of her subjects, but the game quickly descends into chaos.
Live flamingos are used as mallets and hedgehogs as balls, and Alice once again meets the Cheshire Cat.
The Queen of Hearts then orders the Cat to be beheaded, only to have her executioner complain that this is impossible since the head is all that can be seen of him.
Because the cat belongs to the Duchess, the Queen is prompted to release the Duchess from prison to resolve the matter.
The Mock Turtle and the Gryphon dance to the Lobster Quadrille, while Alice recites (rather incorrectly) “‘Tis the Voice of the Lobster“. The Mock Turtle sings them “Beautiful Soup” during which the Gryphon drags Alice away for an impending trial.
Chapter Eleven – Who Stole the Tarts?
Alice attends a trial in which the Knave of Hearts is accused of stealing the Queen’s tarts. The jury is composed of various animals, including Bill the Lizard; the White Rabbit is the court’s trumpeter; and the judge is the King of Hearts.
During the proceedings, Alice finds that she is steadily growing larger. The dormouse scolds Alice and tells her she has no right to grow at such a rapid pace and take up all the air.
She scoffs and calls the dormouse’s accusation ridiculous because everyone grows and she cannot help it.
Meanwhile, witnesses at the trial include the Hatter, who displeases and frustrates the King through his indirect answers to the questioning, and the Duchess’s cook.
