Alice in onderland
Lewis Carroll, born Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, 1832-1898, was not only a writer, but a mathematician as well, which is probably why he loved riddles and puns (Lewis pp). His facility at word play, logic and fantasy has delighted and captivated audiences for more than a century (Lewis pp). His work appeals to both the naive and the most sophisticated, and has been a source of influence of many major twentieth century writers, such as James Joyce and Jorge Luis Borges (Lewis pp).

From Chapter IX in "Alice in onderland," Alice asked, "hy did you call him Tortoise if he wasn't one" ... To which the Mock Turtle angrily replies, "e called him Tortoise because he taught us" (Carroll 127). Carroll's love for math is apparent in Chapter IX in "Through the Looking Glass," when the hite Queen asked Alice, "Can you do Addition ... hat's one and one and….


Alice's interactions within her own dream help to serve as a personal unraveling of her thoughts and feelings in the real world. The philosophical implications of her experiences are many, and as the movie is viewed, it is necessary to first frame each part of the story within specific philosophies. Only then can the story be seen as both a personal exploration and realization as well as a philosophic dialogue between Alice's conscious self and world and her subconscious. Without the philosophical lenses provided by many of history's greatest minds, the movie holds much less interest and meaning. Certainly author Lewis Carol did not intend for the story to take on such meaning as previously discussed, but the story of Alice, in her own world is an allegory within an allegory for self-realization and actualization. Each viewer can personally relate to the experiences she has through the looking glass as….

hile I always found these to be extremely entertaining, I never connected them to the politics of the time. I did catch some of the timeless joked, like Alice stating that in life, "one must either eat or be eaten." I was always quite entertained by the little "nuggets of wisdom" in this book, quotes by all kinds of animals and people. It requires concentrated consideration to really make sense of some of it, but it never feels like nonsense, but rather a witty way of poking fun at the utter nonsense of politics and social structures. You do not have to be British to get some of the timeless jokes, such as why the little Mad Hatter's group celebrates the un-birthday: there are more of them.
The illustrations of Carrol and his friend, Teniel, actually extend the symbolism of the story, especially regarding liberties taken with perspective and scale.….


Alice in Wonderland as Victorian Literature -- Being a child in Victorian England was difficult. They had to behave like the adults did, follow all rules, they had to be seen but not heard. Children, however, are naturally curious; unable to sit for long periods of time, and as part of normal cognitive development, consistently asking questions about the world. In fact, childhood is the period when a child acquires the knowledge needed to perform as an adult. It is the experiences of childhood that the personality of the adult is constructed. Alice's adventures, then, are really more of a set of curiosities that Carroll believed children share. Why is this, who is this, how does this work? and, her journey through Wonderland, somewhat symbolic of a type of "Garden of Eden," combines stark realities that would be necessary for her transition to adulthood.

For Victorians, control was part of not….

Other cinematic techniques that aided in the telling of the story was simplicity of the focus and frames. ith modern computer animation, shots that pan, move in and out, or adjust focus without cuts are now as commonplace in animation as they are in live-action films. The older style of animation, in which backgrounds were often stationary and hardly ever shifted scale without a cut, is actually better suited to the telling of Alice in onderland. This keeps the focus on Alice and her experience in onderland, scaling everything to match whatever her current body size happens to be and relating importance and relationship by the placement of the various characters and background elements in relation to Alice within the frame. The film and therefore viewer's focus shifts, generally speaking, only when Alice's does, in keeping with the flow and construction of the novel.
Another film technique employed in the….

The natural hatred between mice and cats is reflected in the mouse's expressed anguish against Alice's amazed narrative of cats in her world: "Let us get to the shore, and then I'll tell you my history, and you'll understand why it is I hate cats and dogs." This simple line carries with the weight of the history of social inequality: Carroll endeavors his readers to look into history how inequality has become a long tradition encouraged and perpetuated in human society by people with self-interests. In this example, grown-ups become symbols for the wealthy people who continually oppress the poor in order to gain control over society.
In the same respect, Carroll's expression of disdain for grown-ups as shown in "Alice's" also illustrates his disagreement over his protagonist's 'growing up.' Alice's transformation to being a giant is both a pleasant and unpleasant experience: as a giant, the possibilities of doing….

The tone of "Jabberwocky" is ironically tense even though the creatures and situations described in the poem are nonsensical. The tone of "How Doth the Little Crocodile" is ironically tense because of the juxtaposition of danger and naivety: the "gently smiling jaws" of a truly dangerous animal and not just a "Bandersnatch" or "Jabberwocky."
Speak Roughly" is another onderland poem that relies on irony and tension by juxtaposing the innocence of youth with the harsh realities of the adult world. In "Speak Roughly," the speaker claims that little boys sneeze only to annoy and tease his parents. The speaker urges beating the child because of his disrespectful behavior. "Speak Roughly" is even darker in tone than "Jabberwocky" because of the reality of child abuse. Many parents do beat their children for reasons that make no more sense than sneezing. Any reader will know that a Jabberwocky is a fictitious creature,….

Ideals of Fantasy and Reality According to Descarte and Hume
This paper considers what is real and what is fantasy by understanding the ideals of philosophers such as Descarte and Hume. Bibliography cites seven sources.

The reality of croquet and the ever moving hoops

To become like Alice in wonderland, to seek that which only exists in the mind of our imagination is the dream of every person to bring forth what is not real and make it real. The mind is a complex place, by understanding the attitudes and aspects of individuals we are able to understand that the imagination is fuelled by the Will and that the will is fed by the imagination.

When looking at the world as if it was a croquet game in Alice and wonderland we can argue quite easily that life is a mutable role in the ideology of the philosophers, by looking at several aspects and….

Edgar Allen Poe and Lewis Carroll: Unhealthy and Healthy Relationships With Women
Edgar Allan Poe and Lewis Carroll are two writers where their relationships with women, and especially with young children have been questioned. The main issue with Poe is his marriage to his 13-year-old cousin Virginia. For Carroll, the issue is the strong relationships he had with young girls. For both writers, suggestions have been made that their relationships with young women are perverse. To consider these claims it is necessary to look at the types of relationships each writer had with young women and the reasoning for these relationships. A consideration of this will show that Edgar Allan Poe does have unhealthy relationships with women, while Lewis Carroll has healthy relationships with women.

Edgar Allan Poe has a history of choosing inappropriate relationships. This began when Poe was attending private school, when he fell in love with a friend's mother.….

Company: Philip Morris International

Phillip Morris, one of the leading international tobacco companies, is split into two divisions: Phillip Morris International and Phillip Morris USA. The reason for this bifurcation is not administrative, but legal. Officially, Phillip Morris USA proclaims that there is no safe cigarette, and admits that quitting smoking is difficult. Its CEO recently proclaimed: "Because tobacco use is addictive and can be very difficult to quit, our tobacco companies help connect adult tobacco consumers who have decided to quit with cessation information from public health authorities" (Galuszka 2011). Phillip Morris USA must also comply with U.S. regulations banning televised cigarette advertisements and cigarette advertisements aimed at minors.

Internationally, however, smoking is far more acceptable socially than it is in the U.S. While consumption of cigarettes is going down in the U.S., it is actually escalating abroad. Because Phillip….

Oppressed Edible Woman
The Edible Woman -- Margaret Atwood

The Edible Woman offers a look at the conventionalized aspects of society that result in a version of cultural violence which is gender-oppressive. In kaleidoscopic fashion, the protagonist undergoes a series of transformations that are fundamental to her self-identity, her current and future places in society, and her rediscovery of mediating levers to overturn the cultural violence boulder that has come to rest on her shoulders.

The Warping of Marian's Self-Identity

The Marian the reader first meets is a liberated young woman with the clear-headed ability to assess the society in which she lives. She appears to have rejected the role that society has described for women her age. Her relationship with a young lawyer is relaxed by the standards of the day -- a time before hard-line feminism had been articulated -- and her job is meaningful and situated beyond a supporting-position context. If….

10)."
Just as in the U.S. economy, where individuals have been economically left behind, such will be, and is, the case in the emerging global economy (p. 10). Ayres says that the impression, or the turning of society's blind eye towards the chaos of the economically disenfranchised, tends to cause the more affluent amongst us to believe that the term "global" means everybody will be a part of the emerging global economics, and this will produce an economic benefit that will be enjoyed by everyone (p. 10). That is not accurate, and, moreover, those people who presume to take a comfort in the economic globalization are not just turning a blind eye to the disenfranchised, but may find their selves vulnerable in a way that serves to be their light, much like Hank's in Monster's Ball. On this point Ayres says:

There is a popular impression, among the affluent and well-connected,….

Film History
PAGES 18 WORDS 8657

movie industry in America has been controlled by some of the monolithic companies which not only provided a place for making the movies, but also made the movies themselves and then distributed it throughout the entire country. These are movie companies and their entire image revolved around the number of participants of their films. People who wanted to see the movies being made had to go to the studios in order to see them. They made movies in a profitable manner for the sake of the studios, but placed the entire industry under their control and dominated over it. The discussion here is about some of those famous studios inclusive of that of names like Metro Goldwyn Mayer, Culver, RKO, Paramount Studios, Warner Bros, 20th Century Fox, Walt Disney Studios, Universal Studios, Raleigh Studio, Hollywood Center Studio, Sunset Gower Studio, Ren-Mar Studios, Charlie Chaplin Studios and now, Manhattan Beach….

The person/message feedback reflects whether the focus is on the person who sent the feedback or the message. The immediate/delayed one is focused on the timeline of the feedback. The monitoring one has to do with the spontaneity and sincerity of the feedback. Finally, the supportive-critical one reflects the divergence or convergence of the feedback with the original message.
Self-centered feedback is a combination of the feedback types previously mentioned, being a person-focused one, most likely supportive, intentional and positive. This type of feedback can enhance the communication content if it reflects a sincere, unbiased opinion, but because it's likely to be subjective, it can distort the feedback message and implicitly become detrimental to the communication.

6. Interviewing

It is said that non-verbal communication accounts for more than 90% of the message sent out in an interview. In fact the verbal content weights only 7% of the message the interviewer receives from….
