Example text

You promised to tell me your history, you know,” said Alice, “and why it is you hate—C and D,” she added in a whisper, half afraid that it would be offended again. ” said the Mouse, turning to Alice, and sighing. ” And she kept on puzzling about it while the Mouse was speaking, so that her idea of the tale was something like this:— Chapter III: A Caucus-Race and a Long Tale 43 comfits: a candy or sweetmeat; especially, a candied fruit, nut, and so forth. thimble: a small cap worn as protection on the finger that pushes the needle in sewing.

Fury says he has nothing to do, and responds to the mouse’s protests that they don’t have enough individuals to judge the trial and render a verdict. Fury responds that he’ll be prosecutor, judge, and jury, and concludes that he’ll condemn the mouse to death. At first glance, the poem seems to resemble a cat playing with a captured mouse. Carroll, however, may have also used this as a metaphor (a figure of speech containing an implied comparison) for the legal system of Victorian England, where capital punishment in the form of public executions was still widely practiced.

Carroll’s background in mathematics comes into play in his description of this scene. During her fall, Alice is unable to calculate how far or how fast she is descending. The subterranean descent, moreover, reflects a philosophical and scientific fascination with the concept of a hole that would pass through the earth that was examined by, among others, Galileo and Francis Bacon. Among the questions considered by such individuals were changes in air pressure and gravity as one neared and passed through the center of the earth.
