Alice Who?

unnamed (1).jpg

Alice Liddell is “The Beggar-Child” by Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. Alice from “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” in chapter two is struggling with her identity and finding who she is. She wonders what is different about herself today from yesterday. Alice tries to answer some questions that she would know, and falls short of the correct answers. She says, “four times fives is twelve, and four times six is thirteen,and four times seven is– Oh dear!” (pg724). Alice thinks that she is this girl named Mabel who she know to not be too bright. Such as Alice Liddell looks lost in this photo. She looks like she is trying to find out who she is just like Alice is confused about who she is. Alice Liddell is wearing tattered clothing and no shoes, which is a statement that she does not have a place to go, or shoe is “lost”.
