Falling Down the Rabbit Hole: What Every Woman Should Know about Alice in Wonderland

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is the first book on the Pathways Introductory book list. Written by a mathematician who had a lively interest in logic, semantics and philosophy, the story of Alice's fall down the rabbit-hole is packed with intriguing problems. When Alice is puzzled — which is very frequently — you should be too. Enjoy your trip! Lewis Carroll. Illustrated by Sir John Tenniel.

Culture September 28, Alice was sitting on the banks of the river her sister and lovely cat Dinah when, to her surprise, she sees a white rabbit — dressed to the nines in a waistcoat — looking at his pocket watch before diving into the rabbit hole. It seems that Carroll was not just a good mathematician; besides being an excellent storyteller, he even tried his hand at drawing. Unfortunately, he majority of the first printed editions were destroyed because Carroll was unsatisfied with his initial illustrations. While the novel is written for children, few people actually read it when they are young. However, many believe that more children should enjoy the novel, not only as entertainment but as a tool for personal growth.

He appears at the very beginning of the book, in chapter one, wearing a waistcoat , and muttering "Oh dear!
tradition encounters a global perspective of the past

Symbolism, Imagery, Allegory

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 conversations? So she was considering, in her own mind as well as she could, for the hot day made her feel very sleepy and stupid , whether the pleasure of making a daisy-chain would be worth the trouble of getting up and picking the daisies, when suddenly a White Rabbit with pink eyes ran close by her. There was nothing so very remarkable in that; nor did Alice think it so very much out of the way to hear the Rabbit say to itself "Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be too late! In another moment down went Alice after it, never once considering how in the world she was to get out again.

Going "down the rabbit hole" has become a common metaphor in popular culture, symbolizing everything from exploring a new world to taking drugs to delving into something unknown. Think The Matrix , for example, where "following the white rabbit" and later choosing the "red pill" starts Neo off on a journey of philosophical realization from which he cannot return. In Alice's Adventures in Wonderland , the rabbit hole is the place where it all begins. It's Alice's unthinking decision to follow the White Rabbit that leads to all of her adventures. The pop culture version of this symbol perhaps doesn't take into account the "unthinking" nature of this choice quite enough. After all, Alice's decision is pretty foolhardy; if this weren't a magical fantasyland, she'd probably be killed by the fall, and she has no idea where she's going, what she's facing, or how to get home. You may also notice that going down the rabbit hole is a one-way trip — the entry, but not the exit, to the fantasy world.

  1. The rabbit-hole went straight on like a tunnel for some way, and then dipped suddenly down, so suddenly that Alice had not a moment to think about stopping .
