Why So Curious?December 2, 2009
Honestly, why was Alice so curious? Of course it is just a story and anything can happen in a story …
…but why Alice and why in such an eccentric place?
Children are always curious due to a good reason, they are growing up. Without curiousity, children would never learn anything. The children need curiosity because their curiosity allows them to ask questions, explore their surroundings and slowly grow up just like they are suppose to. Throughout the entire story, I have always said that analyzing the story is pointless due to Carroll making it up on the spot. Yet, that doesn’t mean it is just one silly story. Nothing is wrong with analyzing a story and for learning experience it never hurts to start somewhere.
I believe in Alice in Wonderland, the story really shows Alice growing up. From the time she falls down the rabbit hole to the time she woke up, Alice changed an awful lot. From being a series of different sizes to meeting a great variety of strange characters, Alice learned a lot. Wonderland was nothing like Alice’s safety zone in the real world.
By experiencing Wonderland, Alice learns alot about herself and how the real world will treat her once she grows up a little bit more. This adventure was a good experience for Alice.
