October - Alice in Wonderland
Posted on October 21 2018
Since its original publication in 1865, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland has proven an enduring literary classic. The ground-breaking fantasy has never been out of print, has been translated into more than 170 languages, and has influenced artists from surrealist painter Salvador Dali, to filmmaker Tim Burton, fashion designer Vivienne Westwood and Beatle John Lennon.
In the story, Alice is engaged in a quest for her own identity and growth, for some understanding of logic, rules, the games people play, authority, time, and death. When you approach the classic story with this idea in mind, it offers interesting and meaningful interpretations all readers can relate with.
Alice in Wonderland was a milestone in the history of literature, not just because it was one of the first books written for amusement during the victorian age, but because it featured an inquiring, independently minded, self-possessed heroine who seems as modern today as she did in 1865. Ultimately, the triumph of the book, in the Victorian era or any age - is Alice's experience presented as a means of validating for the reader that there is a point at which authority must be challenged, the truth must be told, and power taken back from those who don't deserve it.
