Since Tim Burton drew many ideas from Looking Glass to include in the first movie, the film is left out to dry from a proper roster to resort on using returning characters not even in the book or ones who had not appeared until this one. Here she finds a mirror image of her own world, but with everything reversed. I was told that, because I was female, I could not ride a motorcycle. Alice is left wondering who had been dreaming during her adventures in the Looking-Glass world. First, there's the room you can see through the glass——that's just the same as our drawing-room, only the things go the other way. Alice continues on to meet the White Queenwho is very absent-minded and later transforms into a sheep.

With Alice's Adventures in Wonderland[ edit ] Adaptations combined with Alice's Adventures in Wonderland include the live-action movie Alice in Wonderlandstarring a huge all-star cast and Charlotte Henry in the role of Alice. I was watching the boys getting in sticks for the bonfire——and it wants plenty of sticks, Kitty! However, the incompetence and immaturity of those that may be considered adult characters in the book calls the idea of a progression into question. The mirror imagery is meant to showcase a distorted version of our world, with both playing by seemingly senseless rules.

She encounters Tweedledee and Tweedledum next, who dance, recite poetry and bicker. Buy Study Guide Alice is sitting in a chair scolding her kitten, Kitty, when she notices the alternate world inside the Looking Glass. She finds herself in a carriage full of animals, and once she passes over the next brook, she realizes she is alone with an enlarged gnat from the carriage. I wonder if they'd give you milk in there?

Through the Looking Glass book

And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, 'Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.

Jumping over the final brook into the eighth square, Alice is joined by the Red and White Queens, who frustrate her with their impossible quizzing. Additionally, there is no sense of consistency in the book; as soon as a rule for the looking-glass world is introduced, it is either abandoned or changed.

Alienation Alice is in fact alone through much of the story, though not as much literally as figuratively. That is truly insane, and it was truly a missed opportunity.

Through the Looking Glass Book Review

She finds herself in a carriage full of animals, and once she passes over the next brook, she realizes she is alone with an enlarged gnat from the carriage. She has created a poster that I think is just marvelous, and I would like to share it with you today.

And as in uffish thought he stood, The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame, Came whiffling through the tulgey wood, And burbled as it came! She determines to explore this other world, and as soon as she steps inside, she finds a place much like yet much different from her home.

Alice is placed as the White Queen's pawn, and begins the game by taking a train to the fourth rank, acting on the rule that pawns in chess can move two spaces on their first move. Alice is left wondering who had been dreaming during her adventures in the Looking-Glass world.

Based on a real little girl whose father was also at Oxford during the time Dodgson was there, Alice and her sisters formed the inspiration for these books which went on to be ranked among the best loved in children's literature.

Well, I shouldn't mind that much! The Queen gasped, and sat down: the rapid journey through the air had quite taken away her breath, and for a minute or two she could do nothing but hug the little Lily in silence.

Let's pretend the glass has got all soft like gauze, so that we can get through. The Red Knight is captured by the White Knight.

Alice in the book is easy to follow even through the madness, as she is traveling through this chess board to become queen and the reader never loses sight of that. The Sheep is cranky and rude to Alice. Now, don't smile, my dear, I'm asking it seriously.

You can just see a little peep of the passage in Looking-glass House, if you leave the door of our drawing-room wide open: and it's very like our passage as far as you can see, only you know it may be quite Through the Looking Glass book on beyond.

They have turned away from the people who have said NO! She explains also a bit of the backwards nature of life in the Looking-Glass world.

Yet despite all the analysis and study, Through the Looking-Glass remains a charming and innocent portrayal of childhood imagination and creativity. Alice meets a gnat who is very sad and after the journey, he introduces her to the Bread-and-Butterflythe Rocking-Horse-Flyand the Snap-Dragonfly.

Alice continues on to meet the White Queenwho is very absent-minded and later transforms into a sheep. What have you got to say for yourself?

Alice herself! But she didn't get on very fast, as she was talking all the time, sometimes to the kitten, and sometimes to herself. I can see all of it when I get upon a chair——all but the bit just behind the fireplace.

So, to punish it, she held it up to the Looking-glass, that it might see how sulky it was——"and if you're not good directly," she added, "I'll put you through into Looking-glass House.
