For example, in our devised drama, the freezing was never meant to go wrong, but it did and the same in "Alice's adventures in Wonderland", in the normal world there is never meant to be a talking cat, but there was. "Alice's adventures in Wonderland" was written in the middle of the nineteenth century, and reflects the culture and society that was present in that time, for instance the "mad hatter" was mad because of the solution that was on his top hat, this problem, the problem of going mad because of the solvent used on top hats, was only their in the nineteenth century.

I am a student, isn't that what we do, get drunk and stoned every night? Time to sort out the things I do need from the things I don't need in here. What's this? A hover? I really cannot remember buying this, let alone using it. Oh well if I haven't hovered yet, now isn't the time to start. This room is full of junk; it's full of antiques. There so old now they must be worth nothing. This room is just rubbish, upon rubbish, sprinkled with a fine layer of dust. Sounds a bit like a cake to me.

When her governess scolds her, she states that she can't find a book with no pictures in it interesting. Her governess replies by saying: "My dear Alice, there are many interesting books in this world with no pictures." "In this world maybe, but in my world, a book would be nothing but pictures." The governess rejects this idea, saying it is nonsense, and continues the lesson. Alice however, starts talking to her cat. "That's it! If I had a world of my own everything would be nonsense." And so Alice begins singing a song about a Wonderland. When the song finishes, she sees a rabbit in a tailcoat and watch, just like she had sang about.

Alice In Wonderland by Lewis Carroll can be used in school psychology courses to teach adolescent development.
For adolescents, everything is based on images, and image changes results in identity changes. A person's mental abilities mature with each experience he or she has gone through. When adolescents are confronted by a battle of wits, they respond by thinking abstractly. These battles help the mind to sharpen its reasoning capabilities. Alice meets the Frog Footman when she knocks on the door of the Duchess' house. He makes the statement that since he is on the same side of the door as she, there is no sense in her knocking for him to let her in (Carroll 57).

Alice replies questioningly whether a name must mean something. As a matter of fact every word must have a meaning, or it would be useless. An argument might be that names of people do not have meanings, but that is not true.

The film's last scene is with the two focus characters. We are taken back to the beginning, by them remembering the first time they met. We are tricked once again into thinking that they are going to live happily ever after, however the film adapts a unconventional root and it ends in a blast, we are then introduced to the characters true colours. We are left with three themes which make up the whole of the film: love at first sight, temptation and lies.

In the world of Alice, everything what the creatures in that 'country' says is solidly logical. What they say is what it is, there are no metaphors or any kind of word-game like in our world. In the movie the Kind tells the Hatter "take off your hat", and the Hatter answers with a Wonderland language "It is not mine". The logic we have in our mind is turned upside down in the Wonderland (and that is probably why the furnitures are up sided down in the entrance of the Wonderland).

The line 'So you think that was no sin we did?' reveals religion to the conversation. The man is confused by religion. People at the time were not sure weather to be Protestant or Catholic. He talks of how one of his family was burnt for being Catholic so they became Protestant and one burnt for that to. He is afraid of his sins. That is why he was asking if he was the devil at the beginning, because he was afraid that the sin they had committed was so bad that he was becoming the devil or that the devil was going to get him for it, 'sometimes I think the devil has me.'

Girls are going crazy for the bands they love. People are not afraid to protest against wars and they think life is about love, freedom and peace. Hippies want to 'make love not war' peace movement had the aim to eliminate nuclear weapons and the worldwide fear they engendered and reducing defense spending. Pop culture is not just about music, it also about the fashion trend, hairstyle, behavior and the way of life. Social convention was rejected; the youth do not want to accept the old ways of living, and new attempts for a better life style is created.

Compare the language themes and style in the two extracts explaining how this relates to the audience and purpose.
This effects the style and themes used in Alice as children would be encouraged to take on a more mature attitude but still lead an active imagination. This is shown throughout the book by the attitudes of characters in concern to their place in the hierarchy. A clear example of this is in Alice in Wonderland would be the Queen as she clearly acts as though she is better than everybody else and everyone in her presence acknowledges this and conforms to these rules.

He finishes off his hurried sentence with asking a rhetorical question: 'Where can I have dropped them, I wonder?" He asks himself this, and from the first chapter, we can see that he does talk to himself quite a bit when he is nervous or anxious. This reminds me of an aged person. There is emphasis on the 'can'. There's also inverted word order. This shows us, that the book was written in Victorian times. Lewis Carroll uses a group of three at the end of the paragraph, '...since her swim in the pool, and the great hall with the glass table and the little door...'

At the end of the book Alice finds that the red queen has turned into her kitten and that she is still sitting in her lounge. The whole episode has been a dream. There are no morals or messages in this book.

Everything was going fine. I was in the garden playing with my bird, admiring its plumage. I loved all of my birds. But this one was my favourite out of them all. It was a special bird to me, I had had it for over five years and I never wanted to let it go I never wanted it to fly the nest. Just like I never wanted to let Alice go. I never wanted Alice to fly the nest, she, like the bird, is my favourite granddaughter I never wanted to see her leave me.

The chief character in the story Survival is Alice. In The Son's Veto Sophy is depicted as remarkably pretty and exceedingly attractive at the inception of the story 'the nut-brown hair was a wonder and a mystery'. My experience of Sophy is that she is considerably independent considering her disability, which is explained during the course of the story 'who remained stationary in the chair till the way should be clear enough for her to be wheeled out without obstruction'. Sophy is quite well off to as her son goes to a public school, so subsequently he is exceedingly well educated 'exclaimed the public schoolboy'.
