Alice in Wonderland Mad Tea

`Have some wine,' the March Hare said in an encouraging tone.

Alice looked all round the table, but there was nothing on it but tea. `I don't see any wine,' she remarked.

`There isn't any,' said the March Hare.

`Then it wasn't very civil of you to offer it,' said Alice angrily.

`It wasn't very civil of you to sit down without being invited,' said the March Hare.

About the Piece
The Text Used
Everyone knows Alice in Wonderland having grown up with the Disney movie, but Lewis Carroll's 1865 novel is darker, and much stranger. Alice is a girl maturing into a young woman in a strange land surrounded by seemingly insane people. I can relate, from my own adolescence, with the feeling of being mature enough to understand everyone is not quite as put-together as they had once seemed, yet not being mature enough to cope with the fact that authority figures may just be as clueless as myself.

The text in this piece is from chapter 7 of Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland, published November 26, 1865
