Sample text

Alice, page 55) Š 舠All right,舡 said the Cat; and this time it vanished quite slowly, beginning with the end of the tail, and ending with the grin, which remained some time after the rest of it had gone. 舡 (Alice, page 103) The King and Queen of Hearts were seated on their throne when they arrived, with a great crowd assembled about them舒all sorts of little birds and beasts, as well as the whole pack of cards. (Alice, page 125) Š 舗Twas brillig, and the slithy toves Did gyre and gimble in the wabe; All mimsy were the borogoves, And the mome raths outgrabe.

She tells her sister her dream, whereupon her sister dreams Alice舗s dream. But this second dream is different from Alice舗s, for it is a dream in which the dreamer is half awake and acknowledges that the dream cannot last forever and will 舠change to dull reality舡 (p. 143). Alice, her sister surmises, will wake and grow up into everyday reality, within which the dull and boring world no longer seems opposed to desires but must be reconciled to them. Earlier the extinct Dodo had solemnly called for 舠more energetic remedies舡 (p.

272). Near the end of the books, Alice angrily calls quits to the pack of cards and pulls the tablecloth out from under the diners舗 meal. Indeterminism creates a world where there is no end to worrying about what Alice was unable to consume, and the most non-consumable thing about ourselves is our own passions. What is to be done with them? Desire resembles a game not with subjects who reciprocate our feelings but with losers and winners. Both books end violently, with the upsetting of a table and of a pack of cards, acts that suggest the end of an unsuccessful game and the figurative death of Alice舗s desires.
