Alice is a fictional character in the books Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel Through the Looking-Glass, which were written by Charles Dodgson under the pen name Lewis Carroll.

Alice follows him into the drawer of a table, which leads to a cellar and then down a deep life shaft to a room piled high with leaves.
Alice's odyssey, in this sense, is a hunt for her own context, and her frequent calls to the Rabbit - "Oh sir, please wait!" - are a plea for time (which for him, as for most adults, is in short supply) to be given for explanation and involvement.
But the ending, with Alice waiting to snip off the head of her treacherous 'teacher', is also balefully personal: she is now free from the tyranny of her elders, but the only power this realisation has given her is the power of destruction.
