  • Childhood And Imagination In The Adventures Of Alice In Wonderland By Lewis Carroll

    Age has always been an issue of mind over matter. Just as age is not limited by how one looks or feels, imagination does not either. It is often the case that age limits imagination, but that is not the true. No one can blame themselves for wanting that sense of creativity to live within for as long as possible, which is exactly how Alice felt throughout her journey. In The Adventures of Alice in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll uses references to his own past, Alice’s change in size, and imagery to show that people can keep elements of childhood, like imagination, forever. It is well known and quite obvious that childhood only lasts for a short amount of time before becoming an adult. It is not easy to let go of farcical games in the front yard of the house or walking around with neighborhood kids. G.M. Young said, “Lewis Carroll exemplified a ‘new unpietistic handling of childhood’” (British Writers). This means that Carroll expressed a new meaning of childhood to adulthood while up keeping imaginative thought. We often see Alice as someone who follows the rules, “but there is nothing goody-goody in the treatment of her adventures” or in the way she handles herself (British Writers). This shows that Alice is growing up as anyone would, but she is holding on to her childhood as a source of imagination. As a matter of fact Carroll was never truly an ‘adult’ himself. The Adventures of Alice in Wonderland was first written for his favorite children and friends, Alice, Edith, and…

  • The Pros And Cons Of The Dodo Bird Piminet

    The Dodo bird verdict terminology, which was inspired by “Everybody's won and all must have prices” phrase in Alice's in Wonderland novel, describes the attitude that all talking therapies are equally effective and common factors shared by all of them are more important than specific technical differences (Rosenzweig,1936). In response to that a strong statement, in 1975, when one of the first comparative studies reported that there are significant differences in the outcomes among different…

  • Western Black Rhino Extinction

    Imagine the American Great Seal, but with a Dodo. The pudgy, large-beaked, flightless bird, carries one fistful of arrows and an olive branch. The banner carrying the words E Pluribus Unum is drooping sadly out of the greenish beak. Or maybe replace the dodo with a velociraptor. Or a Western Black Rhino. All of these stories have sad endings, with the dodo and velociraptor going extinct thousands of years ago. But extinction isn’t something that happened to the dinos and the dodo birds. The…

  • Analysis Of Survival Of The Fittest

    Although no perfect examples come to mind, the example of the Dodo, a flightless bird native to the island of Mauritius, is a somewhat familiar one. Mauritius was an uninhabited island when first settled by the Dutch in the early 17th century.(BBC News, Jonathan Fryer, 14 Sep 2002.) The Dodo had no natural enemies, and had not fear of humans or the rats that stow away in the holds of ships. Between over-hunting and predation by invasive species, it was extinct by 1681. (Ditto…

    Since the European Union has opened its market, its preferential treatment toward African, Caribbean, and Pacific (ACP) countries has threatened the entire future of free trade in the global banana industry (Lightner & O’Mara, 1999).
