Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
Published in 1865, the book lampoons the moralistic and hypocritical Victorian era. Alice, a child, discovers the nonsensical and nightmarish world of adults. Her painful growing and shrinking experiences are a symbol of puberty and the confusing search for a new identity.
