In 1865, Lewis Carroll published his famous children’s story, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. In 1951, Walt Disney used the story as the basis for an animated feature film. Since 1865, several books, movies, and study guides have been produced to discover the story’s underlying meaning. Lewis Carroll was the pen name for English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. At first glance, it appears he wrote the story in a drug induced state. Its surreal quality has raised a few eyebrows through the years. Since the drug culture was not a prominent problem back in the day, it is safe to assume he was inspired by some other source. His classic tale demonstrated the importance of words as they pertain to our sense of identity and value.
