So I thought I’d reacquaint myself with an old classic. I always remembered despite being a big fan of Alice in Wonderland never really paying much attention to the poetry. I decided to reread the story and pay a little better attention to it. I realized I enjoyed the story, but I’m not really a poetry fan. I had however forgot about the wonderful job Lewis Carol did describing the thought process of a small child. The short little ideas that jump one to another in such short rapid succession are very much like the mind of a child. The other thing that struck me is how scenes jumped from one to the other. One minute Alice is sitting under a tree and listening to two queens snore, the next she is standing at a great door. At any rate it’s a very good story and I suggest it to anyone who’s a fan of good writing.
