Memorabilia on Ebay: Alice in Wonderland

This post is also available in: Romanian

One girl’s dream of a victorian world, in which life gets pastel, the characters drink tea, animals are humanized, play and make trips nearby. Actually, she prefers to reflect reality in chimeras, finding similar fantasies to every milestone in his life. There are also shadows and mystery involved. Somehow, no one understands anything, but remains changed forever once smitten with those oddities of this story.

Although I personally never liked the story, seeing an unsuccessful film version with creepy characters I was left with on my retina, I can’t agree more that it has so many meanings, like any large-scale literary metaphor. Its ideas come to life in role plays and challenges of rhetorical questions and the absurd of the situation and find their translation in the the stages through which each of us become mature, consciously or not. Since everything is play and playfulness, Alice in Wonderland  is playing with our minds, claiming innocence, sacrifice, courage, failure, responsibility, friendship and charm of life – in real and imaginary plan. For those who liked the story in particular and have been looking for some great memories to cling on the wall or to meditate on the absurd world in which we get to live here there are.
