Alice is always described as precocious, because she is forward and inquisitive. Alice questions everyone and everything, and in this reverse world of chess, there are many puzzling things that need answering. Being imaginative leads her to be a lonely child who seeks comfort in her fantasy world. She shows considerable determination and fearlessness, as she stands her ground with the Red Queen, even appearing more intelligent than the adults, and other characters.
In, Through the Looking Glass, Alice is on a journey to become a queen-an adult. The symbolism that can be interpreted from book is endless.
I like Alice. Her self doubt makes her relatable. I appreciate the fact that she challenges life. What is reality? And, she can make sense of her imagination.
This is what Alice would say if we met.
'You are a curious thing, aren't you? Your imagination is just as ridiculous as my own. I've often heard people talk about what utter nonsense it is-this world we live in-but isn't it such fun? We should swap mirrors sometime.'
