In this essay I am going discuss the importance of imagination and also answer this question in regards to Alice's Adventure in Wonderland. Imagination is one thing enabled by intelligence to us humans. Nevertheless, perhaps due to the fact that it is considered to be a childish characteristic, we don’t realize the real significance of imagination as being responsible for the world that we live in. Imagination enables us to accomplish a lot of things, not necessary useful or good. Without imagination there wouldn't be reality. Imagination is a base of reality. Imagination can push us to accomplish our goals. The book "Alice in Wonderland” was a result of undeniably vivid imagination of the author Lewis Carroll. And not only that, …show more content…
And imagination on its own, I'm guessing, helped them push their goals. At least imagination does for me. For example, I am lazy and I don't want to study for an exam. Then I think what would happen if I get a good grade. I put myself in future and see myself as a powerful man who is living a happy life, than I ask myself, how did I get here? By working hard and studying for exams and getting a good and deserved job. This always boosts my moral and keeps me on going. There is no artist without imagination, so if humans didn't have imagination we would have no art in any of its forms. No books, no music, no pictures, no photographs. Imagine a world without music. It's a bit sad isn't it? Our homes would be plain and our happiness couldn't be as strong of an emotion as it is. I think that everyone, at some point in their lives, lied down in their beds before sleep and thought. I know that I did this many times. During those "thinking seance" me, myself and I learned a lot by analyzing what I did and what could have I done better. That would create a lot of scenarios. From those scenarios I would learn for future similar situations that I might find myself in. This was an act of imagination, but for me it was very close to real life experience.

That is why Carroll wrote Alice story primarily for children, to prevent them to lose it, but for adults too. This story taught me that imagination has no end and sweet dreams should be memorized and remembered. I believe that this story is funny and entertaining. It is mostly suitable for children and it can motivate them to free their imagination just as Alice did. In addition, they can have a good time reading because it’s a child classic. So to sum it all up, imagination is, in my opinion very underestimated and very important characteristic of all humans. This proves how underestimated imagination is: "you have wild imagination". It's the sentence used to offend someone for trying to accomplish something that is, at the given time, impossible. Maybe it's in human nature to judge such unimaginable ideas, but if it wasn't, I'm sure that this world would be developing much faster. As I have earlier said, imagination can be good, bad or just imagination. For some, it's a source for fun, for some source for great ideas, and some use it to fuel their evil. This world would be a different place without it, that's what I don't doubt at
