During my recent years I have learned a lot about the fairy tale Alice in Wonderland. From people saying that the story is based on drug use due to various scenes in the book. However it was only recently that I found out that the fairy tale is based on a true story about Alice Liddell. Alice Liddell was the daughter of Henry Liddell, the Dean of Christ Church Oxford. Christ Church is the constituent college of the well-known Oxford University and is located in central Oxford. It is probably one of the oldest education institutions in world. If you have watched the movie “The girl in the book” it is more or less the same story, although some might say exactly the same. Alice was a young girl when Lewis Carroll met her family while he was visiting the Christ Church as a photographer. That was when he grew an interest in the family and later Alice became his muse. The amazing part is that a story that only seemed real in books and movies might actually be someone’s biography. Of course as readers we know that writers find inspiration in the simplest of things, and most of them would be real things, but I have always thought that make believe was always supposed to stay as make believe. It might be mainly due to my jealousy and envy of their life how their daily actions in their life could inspire a multi-million dollar worth story and box office charting movie. It just makes me feel like I’m just existing doing nothing with my life. The most bizarre thing of all is that this story could easily be about someone next door to you but it still seems so surreal.
