All the time people try to find a meaning, and later controvert it. For example, critics view a novel by Lewis Carroll Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, as a quest for maturity story, Carroll's view on Victorian Society and even existential meaning on life. All of those interpretations come from philosophical "drive" of the critics. The truth is that anyone can poi...

    Of all of Lewis Carrolls works, Alices Adventures in Wonderland has a unique standing in the category of whimsical, nonsense literature. Much has been written about how this novel contrasts with the vast amount of strict, extremely moralistic childrens literature of the Victorian time Lewis Carroll lived in. Yet, as odd as this novel appears in relation to the other Victorian childrens stories, this short novel is odder because it was written by an extremely upright, ultra conservative man; a Vi...

    Lewis Carroll is one of the most well known Nonsense Writers. Though using nonsense in poetry has been dismissed as simply 'for entertainment purposes', most nonsensical poetry acts as an allegory, has deep symbolism and leaves the door wide open for varying interpretations. Lewis Carroll has utilized this sense with nonsense through his poems and prose found in his novels Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass. Through Carroll's interactions with his close friends and family, and the...

    After hundreds of publications, films, and stage plays, some scholars have begun to fear that Alice has become "cold and monumental, like a classic tomb" say Gilbert K. Chesterton, of the novel (Gardener, 1960). The Adventures of Alice In Wonderland is no longer a light, fun book of nonsense, but now, more than ever, just a required reading for most high school students. The truth is that Lewis Carroll's humorous antics are not quite as senseless as they may seem to the average, American teenage...

    Alice in Wonderland, the most famous work of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, better known as Lewis Carroll, is the enduring tale of one girl's journey into a world of whimsy and imagination.

    Does Poetry Matter To me poetry does not matter. I do not like poetry because a poem is just a passage that contains a hidden meaning and I can never figure out what a poem is about. If poetry was not around then authors would just come out and say what they wanted to say. Their thoughts would not get confused and people would not miss the meaning that the author is trying to get across. Poetry is just an art form like painting, music, sculpting, and writing. You could take away any art form an...
