Transcript of Exposition/Rising Action
"Who in the world am I?" Ah, that's the great puzzle.
Rising Action: Alice finds a door that leads to a garden and drinks a bottle labeled "DRINK ME" so she can shrink and fit through the door. She forgets the key and begins to cry.
"When she got to the door she found she forgotten the golden key, and when she went back to find it, she found that she could not possibly reach it. The little poor thing sat down and cried." (Carroll 10)
Resolution occurs when Alice pulls the table cloth
Alice proceeds to pick up the Red Queen and starts shaking her
The shaking makes Alice realize it was only a dream
Alice was just shaking one of the kittens
"Dinah'll miss me very much to-night, I should think!" (Dinah was the cat.) "I hope they'll remember her saucer of milk at tea-time." What does this tell us about Alice?
"What a curious feeling!" said Alice. "I must be shutting up like a telescope." Be careful of what you wish for.
Climax: Alice is finally able to control her size and once again becomes her normal size. From there she goes to the King's court.
"Who cares for you?" said Alice (she had grown to her full size by this time). "You're nothing but a pack of cards!" (116)
Falling Action: Alice realizes that Wonderland is all a dream and takes down the King's court. She then wakes up.
"...she gave a little scream, half of fright and half of anger, and tried to beat them off, and found herself lying on the bank, with her head in the lap of her sister..." (116)

Literary Devices and Plot Structure
Symbolism: Carroll uses symbolism to show the progression of Alice's maturity as she ventures in wonderland.
" 'Now I'm opening up like the largest telescope that ever was!... she was was rather now nine feet high... Poor Alice!It was as much as she could do, lying down on one side, to look through into the garden with one eye... she sat down and began to cry again." (Carroll 26,27).
Imagery: By using imagery Carroll is able to give the reader an image of a young and naive little girl lost in a dream blindly looking for answers.
Metaphor: Carroll uses metaphors to allude to underlining messages and ideas concerning Alice’s coming of age.
Rhyme: Though a simple and lesser literary device, Carroll uses rhyme to emphasis the silliness and juvenile ways that cling so desperately to Alice.
