It touches on subjects ranging from syntax to rhetoric and dialogic logic.
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass follow Alice, a young Victorian girl, as she falls down a rabbit hole and finds herself in a magical and confounding new world.

All of Alice's strange adventures examine the themes of childhood imagination and innocence, as well as logic and wordplay.
