Alice novel. In Alice in Wonderland, in the beginning

Alice in Wonderland is a fantasy novel which was written by Charles Lutwidge Dudgson who also is known as Lewis Carroll in 1865. The book is narrated by 3rd person anonymously to vocalize Alice’s thoughts and feelings. While reading this novella, we discover that protagonist Alice is a little child, whose age is not specified in the novel after she falls to the hole in her dream, somehow her attitudes and her thoughts start to take shape ideationally. Alice’s adventure starts with falling through a rabbit hole to her fancy wonderland and ends with waking up and leaving her dream. This essay will thematically explain how Alice changes by the end of the novel. In Alice in Wonderland, in the beginning of the book, Alice gets bored while watching her sister who is reading a book without any picture in that time. “Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do: once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in it, ‘and what is the use of a book,’ thought Alice ‘without pictures or conversation?”.(pg. 2) If Alice can think as detailed like that we can say Alice has a colorful and creative character who wants to enlarge her life, she does not want to be stuck into the given world she wants to go after her expectations and curiosity. “… when suddenly a White Rabbit with pink eyes ran close by her”. (pg.2) “In another moment down went Alice after it, never once considering how in the world she was to get out again”. (pg.3)Considering her colorful thoughts when she sees the white rabbit with waistcoat she follows the rabbit without any hesitation and falls down through the hole. Her attitude in the beginning of the book is innocent and childish.”Poor Alice! It was as much as she could do, lying down on one side, to look through into the garden with one eye; but to get through was more hopeless than ever: she sat down and began to cry again”. (pg.12)The first important change occurs while she is observing the wonderland and tries to discover. She is only a child and cannot be expected any different reaction in the beginning. She is afraid and alone there. Wonderland has rules which are completely different from hers.  She continues to observe the wonderland she meets each creature who can talk to her. This is something peculiar to her but she likes to talk to them. After a while, she starts to think that she is clever than the creatures in Wonderland and this makes her a little bit egoist. “There was a dead silence instantly, and Alice thought to herself, ‘I wonder what they will do next! If they had any sense, they’d take the roof off”. (pg.36)She criticizes their choices just because she thinks she knows the best. She changes in every aspect of herself. She is transforming to both matured child and adolescence stage of her. The environment which is we are living in can affect us by any measure so does Alice.Alice is getting bigger and smaller size time to time in the novel. This alteration affects her behaviors such as; when she is big she feels stronger because she becomes the biggest creature in the area and also she has more experiences than others as she comes from another world, when she is small she escapes or run away easily but on the other hand she feels insecure and defenseless because she becomes almost the smallest creature in the area. As we assume Alice as a child her different emotional thoughts in such a place can be conceived reasonable. Every people need to defend themselves and feel secure.Even though this wonderland is a fiction of Alice’s mind, Alice changes a lot by the end of the book. Her innocence and childish attitude replace her ego and instability. She vacillates what to do throughout the whole story. “How should I know?’ said Alice, surprised at her own courage. ‘It’s no business of mine”. (pg.79) Her courage can be seen only with that quotation by the end. “The King laid his hand upon her arm, and timidly said ‘Consider, my dear: she is only a child!”.(pg.79)She is considered as a child for her rigid behavior.  Her shyness is not with her anymore.Alice’s psychological and personal development can be debated in every aspect. Besides that with the aforementioned reasons we can say, when everything starts to be complicated and Queen and the King want to behead her, she is getting indignant and angry. At the end of the novel, Alice’s sister wakes her up and wonderland gets finished. However, we can approach this end beyond the book’s fact, she wants to end her wonderland by herself because Alice understands wonderland is not real and does not make any sense.
