Alice in wonderland inspired...
























A short piece on Alice to inspire...
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (commonly shortened to Alice in Wonderland
)
is an 1865 novel written by English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll .

It tells the story of a girl named Alice who falls down a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by peculiar and anthropomorphic creatures.
The tale plays with logic
in ways that have given the story lasting popularity with adults as well as children.
It is considered to be one of the best examples of the literary nonsense genre.
I love this little piece of ref:

Historical references

In the eighth chapter, three cards are painting the roses on a rose tree red,

because they had accidentally planted a white-rose tree that the Queen of Hearts hates.

Red roses symbolized the English House of Lancaster, while white roses were the symbol for their rival House of York.

Therefore, this scene may contain a hidden allusion to the Wars of the Roses.
