Critical Analysis – Alice in Wonderland Paper
In the next essay, we will discuss Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll and adapted to a play by Anne Coulter Martens. In this retelling of the original story by Lewis Carroll, Anne Coulter Martens shows children the importance of what we say, how we say it, and how you need to study the things around you and, more importantly, yourself. I think Alice in Wonderland is a story that will keep being important for people through years because, more than a simple story, it tells us to be a better person.
The story starts when the Cheshire Cat waits for Alice to get down the rabbit hole.

He runs off and Alice asks Cheshire (or Chessy) for help getting home since it’s her birthday and her parents made a party for her.

On the way, she meets a big, blue caterpillar, a Duchess that has a pig as a baby, Humpty Dumpty, the Mad Hatter, the Hare, and a Dormouse. Then she finds the Queen, and she tells Alice to come with her to play crocket.
When Alice follows the Queen’s group to play croquet, she gets lost and meets Tweedledee and Tweedledum. She asks them for directions, but they start fighting. Chessy goes back to lead the way and she arrives at the crocket field. There, everyone plays horribly to let the Queen win so she doesn’t tell the Executioner to behave them. The Knave steals and eats the Queen’s cherry tart, and Alice is accused of the crime. She’s forced to attend a trial where she’s found guilty, but she finally understands Wonderland is a dream. She gets rid of everyone in the trials and says goodbye to Chessy.
