Alice's Hero's Journey
Transcript of Alice's Hero's Journey
The Call to Adventure
Alice’s call to adventure initially starts when she accidentally falls down the rabbit hole while chasing the white rabbit.
Refusal to the Call
Alice refuses to believe that wonderland is real.
Return with the Elixir
In the original story of Alice in Wonderland, Alice's sister is the one who sees Alice return with the elixir rather than Alice herself. The true elixir is not a potion or a monster that she had defeated. Alice brings back the wonderful memories of her crazy, wild dreams.
Meeting With The Mentor
The Cheshire cat follows Alice through out her journey giving her riddles to help her complete her quest through wonderland.
Alice goes through the rabbit hole when she crosses into wonderland. Afterwards, she crosses through a fairly small door.
Crossing the Threshold
Tests Allies and Enemies
Alice goes through one main test and that is to find her way through out wonderland meeting many allies who help her along the way and a few enemies as well. Her biggest foe is the queen of hearts who tries to kill both her and the rabbit, who helps her along with wonderland's inhabitants.
Alice approaches trouble when she ventures into the queen's castle and starts to paint the roses.
Alice goes to play croquet with the queen but her life depends on not winning.
Alice's reward in her journey is unlike that of any other hero. Her reward is confidence. She gains confidence in herself.
As Alice begins to grow she predicts that it will soon be time for her return home. Alice and the Queen of Hearts eventually quarrel and Alice is chased by a pack of cards, which are the guards.
The Road Back
Alice’s adventure starts of as an ordinary day. She’s sitting with her sister under a tree, reading a book about her lessons.
The Ordinary World
Alice leaves wonderland and awakes in her sister's lap. She realizes that it was all a dream.
"..she pictured to herself how this same little sister of hers would, in the after-time, be herself a grown woman; and how she would keep, through all her riper years, the simple and loving heart of her childhood: and how she would gather about her other little children, and make THEIR eyes bright and eager with many a strange tale, perhaps even with the dream of Wonderland of long ago: and how she would feel with all their simple sorrows, and find a pleasure in all their simple joys, remembering her own child-life, and the happy summer days."
