Alice in Wonderland and Utopia

Leah Hadomi, Robert Elbaz

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper we study the ways in which Alice in Wonderland simultaneously reaffirms and transgresses the Utopian structure through the consideration of the three basic productive modes of Utopia: the games, the language, and the dream which are essential to the Utopian generic structure as a whole. Alice, we claim, constitutes an insecure form on the very limits of the literary production, and as such, it hovers between sense and nonsense, repetition and difference.
