Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

As discussed in this YouTube video - we will rank and review Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland to share a few writer’s tips with you without reading the book yet!

First, we rank the book based on three factors:

  1. Enjoyability

  2. Applicability

  3. Literary Value

Score:

Enjoyability (5*)

Through every tunnel and turn, Lewis Carroll takes us deeper into his pleasant purple colorful world. The writing is straightforward yet captivating as we find ourselves soon wrapped into silly scenarios that serve a greater message.

Lewis wastes no time suspending our disbelief, yet somehow we manage to live every word in picture.

Great light enjoyable classic.

Applicability (1*)

Applicability depends on how we look at this scenario.

Though Lewis avoids direct advice and criticism, there are several lessons a writer pulls from this book.

However, I believe it is best to save the Applicability score for books that offer direct value or resource to the reader - so we shall instead transfer the good value to the “Literary Value” section.

Literary Value (5*)

Whether it’s engaging the environment, creating conversation or symbolizing political scenarios Lewis seems to achieve a mastery of literature with this piece.

You’d assume that a master’s work may reflect something of an infinite enigma, yet it feels opposite here.

Simple. Simple. Simple.

There are a fruitful amount of lessons for the writer in this book, and here I extract an easy three:

Three Interesting People/Shows to Research From This Book:

  1. Create Conversation

  2. Focalize Symbolism

  3. Animals Amplify Imagery
