Fantasia: rifugio dell'anima e specchio del mondo

Appunto inviato da elenasofia93 Voto 4

Un percorso, che parte da Alice in Wonderland e si collega alla teoria del piacere di Leopardi e allo spagnolo Unamuno con la sua opera "Niebla", che parla di come sia difficile distinguere tra fantasia e realtà. (4 pagine formato docx)

This book tells about a 7-year-old girl, Alice. She was sitting in the garden with her sister, when she suddenly saw a strange white-rabbit running. He was looking at the watch he had taken out of his waistcoat-pocket, and he kept on saying he was late.


So Alice decided to follow him, but all at a sudden she fell into a very deep rabbit hole. When she finished falling, she found herself in Wonderland, an illogical world made of paradoxes, absurdities and nonsense, where the only rule was that there are no rules. There she met a lot of weird characters, such as the Cheshire-Cat, the March Hare and the mad Hatter. She wanders in Wonderland until she met the Queen of Hearts, who asked Alice to play croquet together. In the end she was involved in a trial and she rebelled against all the Queen’s absurdities, but before the end of the trial, she woke up from what she realized was a dream.

TRA FANTASIA E REALTA' (Clicca qui >>)

Apparently it can be seen only as a children’s story, in particular because of its  bizarre characters and situations. But it has a deeper meaning: in fact Carroll questions the logic of the linguistic structures, and so he subverted and inverted grammatical figures, and used paradoxes and nonsense to create tension between order and chaos.


The main aspect reflected by the book is the parody of the Victorian society. Carroll shows how in Wonderland everything is possible, instead in the real world everybody and everything has to follow moral conventions imposed by the society.
