Example text

Just then she heard something splashing about in the pool a little way off, and she swam nearer to make out what it was: at first she thought it must be a walrus or hippopotamus, but then she remembered how small she was now, and she soon made out that it was only a mouse that had slipped in like herself. “Would it be of any use, now,” thought Alice, “to speak to this mouse? ” So she began: “O Mouse, do you know the way out of this pool? ” The Mouse looked at her rather inquisitively, and seemed to her to wink with one of its little eyes, but it said nothing.

The tale concerns an individual named Fury who convinces a mouse to conduct a trial in which Fury will prosecute the mouse. 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.

Alice, misunderstanding “not” for its homonym “knot,” replies that the tail (or tale) is getting caught in a knot, and she offers to help undo it. Offended at having his tale interrupted and misunderstood, the Mouse walks away. ” he says to Alice. Alice pleads for the Mouse to return, and all the others join her in the request, but the Mouse does not return.
