why it (F/D) matters
In Lewis Carroll's
Through the Looking Glass
, there are several interactions between children and adults. This has lead readers to ask whether the book shows and adult's perspective of childhood or a child's perspective of adulthood. Because the adults in the novel are portrayed as mean, selfish, nonsensical, and even childish, Through the Looking Glass can be said to show a child's view of adulthood.
The reader first encounters an adult when Alice meets the Red Queen, who treats her in a condescending way.
This furthers the Red Queens development as a condescending character while simultaneously establishing absurdity as the law of the land, thus making her more powerful
she is absurd.
The idea of absurdity being the norm, and adults being mean, is continued through Alice's interactions with other minor characters throughout the novel.
In the very first lines of dialogue between the Red Queen and Alice, the Red Queen is sharply interrogating her and giving instructions on manners, "Where do you come from?...where are you going? Look up, speak nicely, and don't twiddle your fingers all the time"(73).
This reflects how many children view their interactions with adults: the adult demands answers and gives instructions without a care for the child's well-being or concerns.
The Red Queen solidifies her persona as an overbearing character when she goes on to say, "all the ways about here belong to ME"(73) and pats Alice's head as she begins a string of nonsensical comments such as, "
could show you hills, in comparison with which you'd call that a valley"(74). Alice then tries to leave the garden with the Red Queen, who points out, "it takes all the running YOU [Alice] can do, to keep in the same place."
