Alice's Adventures in Wonderland written by Lewis Caroll was originally published on November 26, 1865. On the other hand, the movie version, directed by Clyde Geronimo, Wilfred Jackson, and Hamilton Luske and produced by Walt Disney, was published in 1951. Carroll's book has twelve chapters and begins by describing a girl who named Alice that falls down a hole and finds herself in wonderland. In comparison, the movie begins with a scene not included in the book in which Alice sings about “her world,” foreshadowing wonderland. In the beginning, the versions are similar. Alice follows the rabbit because she is bored with her sister who only wants to read books with pictures. When she follows the rabbit, Alice finds herself in a different world. The difference is that in the book when Alice comes to the place, she finds the rabbit and follows him until she sees many doors. In the movie, however, the door talks to her instead.
At the mention of the name Alice, one tends to usually think of the children’s stories by Lewis Carroll. Namely, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass are two classic works of children’s literature that for over a century have been read by children and adults alike. These two stories tell the tale of a young girl named Alice who finds herself in peculiar surroundings, where she encounters many different and unusual characters. Although Alice is at the centre of both stories, each tale is uniquely different in its purpose, characters and style.
In 1862, floating upon the river Isis, Charles Dodgson narrated for Alice Liddell and a few others in company his original tale of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Gliding along underneath the blue sky, Dodgson wove his words into one of the most classic children stories of all time. Thesis: Although Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland may have only begun as a children’s story, many adults have sought to discover the “true meaning” of the novel. Curiosity has led to years of searching and interpretation of the origins of Carroll’s novels, and the symbols inside, developing into theories ranging from practical to nearly impossible, eventually evolving into their own stories in the film industry.
The fantasy film adaption of Lewis Carroll’s original novel ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’ was directed by Tim Burton and produced in 2010. The visually engaging version of Alice’s quirky adventures is comprised of many vivid mise-en-scene effects in the dynamic scene where Alice slays the Jabberwocky. These vast arrays of elements include colour, lighting, set design, props, makeup, creative costumes and sound effects.
Many themes are explored when reading Lewis Carrol’s, Alice in Wonderland. Themes of childhood innocence, child abuse, dream, and others. Reading the story, it was quite clear to see one particular theme portrayed through out the book: child to adult progression. Alice in Wonderland is full of experiences that lead Alice to becoming more of herself and that help her grow up. It’s a story of trial, confusion, understanding, and success. And more confusion. Though others might argue that the story was distinctly made for children just to get joy out of funny words, and odd circumstances, the tale has obvious dynamics that confirm the fact of it being a coming of age story.
A wonderland is defined as an imaginary place of delicate beauty, magical charm, and a place that excites admiration. When one thinks of a “wonderland,” the ideas that come to mind include wonderful, magical, and mysterious things. In both Alice in Wonderland and Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, the idea of a wonderland is existent in both of these movies. The two films both contain main characters who resemble characteristics that a hero would have. Alice in Wonderland and Miss Peregrine’s home for Peculiar children both include similarities with regard to the portrayal of a wonderland.
Tim Burton’s 2010 version of Alice in Wonderland differs greatly from Disney’s 1951 animated version. In the nearly 60 years since the animated film came out, technology in filmmaking increased tremendously, namely with CGI and new visual effects. This enables the filmmakers to create a version of Lewis Carroll’s famous novel that is live-action, while still including the fantastical world he imagined. For example, CGI and special effects that did not exist in 1951 were used to create many characters in Tim Burton’s film, such as the anthropomorphic animals that Alice encounters, like the March Hare, the Red Queen’s frog servants, and Absolem, the hookah-smoking caterpillar. Special effects were also used to create the visual setting in the 2010 version, such as the vibrancy of the
If the movie Alice in Wonderland was like the book then what would it be like? Though the movie is sort of like the book there are a few things missing. When she's falling in the movie her dress catches her but in the book she just falls. When she finishes falling in the book she's surrounded by many doors, but in the movie it's just one small door. And also the door isn't living in the book but in the movie it is. The garden of live flowers and Tweedledum and Tweedledee weren't in the book as well. They did come in until the second book "Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There. In the movie the Cheshire Cat is there to help her but in the book she helps herself most of the time.
Lewis Carroll's Wonderland is a queer little universe where a not so ordinary girl is faced with the contradicting nature of the fantastic creatures who live there. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is a child's struggle to survive in the condescending world of adults. The conflict between child and adult gives direction to Alice's adventures and controls all the outstanding features of the work- Alice's character, her relationship with other characters, and the dialogue. " Alice in Wonderland is on one hand so nonsensical that children sometimes feel ashamed to have been interested in anything so silly (Masslich 107)."
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, was a children’s book written by Lewis Carroll. The focus of
Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll endures as one of the most iconic children 's books of all time. It remains one of the most ambiguous texts to decipher as Alice 's adventures in Wonderland have created endless critical debate as to whether we can deduce any true literary meaning, or moral implication from her journey down the rabbit hole. Alice 's station as a seven year old Victorian child creates an interesting construct within the novel as she attempts to navigate this magical parallel plain, yet retain her Victorian sensibilities and learn from experience as she encounters new creatures and life lessons. Therefore, this essay will focus on the debate as to whether Alice is the imaginatively playful child envisaged by the Romantics, or a Victorian child whose imagination has been stunted by her education and upbringing.
Lewis Carroll was a famous American author of the children 's classics Alice 's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass. Although his novels were primarily written for children, no other children’s book has received so much adult attention such as this one. Lewis Carroll has been inspiring directors, writers, and artists of all sorts for decades. The latest addition happened in 2010, where director Tim Burton created a film, Alice in Wonderland, based off of Lewis Carroll’s fantasy novels. The film brings to life Lewis Carroll’s novels of a land filled with wonders and strange and curious creatures. The film tells a story of 19-year-old Alice, who returns to the whimsical world she first encountered as a young girl. In this Tim Burton’s adaption of the Alice in Wonderland movie, special effects played a crucial element in providing the Wonderland setting and the animated characters in the film to look as realistic as possible.
The original book of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll, has many differences within the plot when compared to the 1951 Disney movie adaptation. One of the differences between these two adaptations is that in the book, Tweedledee and Tweedledum never appear or are mentioned. In the movie, Tweedledee and Tweedledum are included. This makes the reader/audience understand the text differently because there are more characters incorporated into the movie that change the plot. Adding new characters to the movie change the significance of those characters, because they add new dialogue and actions to the plot. Another plot difference between these two adaptations has to do with the caterpillar. In the book, the caterpillar crawls away from Alice. However, the caterpillar turns into a butterfly in the movie. This is significant to the plot in both the movie and book, because they symbolize different things. The caterpillar turning into a butterfly signifies how much he has grown throughout the movie, and it’s finally his time to leave. The caterpillar turning into a butterfly in the movie adds more significance to the plot, because he is transforming into something new. Whereas, the book simply has the caterpillar crawl away. One of the last differences between these two adaptations is that in the movie no one could see the cat, except for Alice. This makes the audience understand the text differently, because the cat has more of a specific meaning to the movie.
After reading Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and then watching the Disney movie Alice in Wonderland, I found that there were a couple of main plot differences. A main plot difference was that the poem the Caterpillar asked Alice to Recite was different in the book than it was in the movie. In the movie, Alice recited a poem titled How Doth the Little Crocodile, and in the book she recites the poem titled You Are Old, Father William. The Caterpillar is also portrayed much meaner throughout the movie compared to the book. At the end of the book, Alice woke up her sister and told her about the dreams that she had. It turned out that the sister also dreamt something very similar. In the movie though, Alice had woken up her parents.
