Interesting.So it's your contention that a 10 year old girl was a familiar the"East End" of London and hookas?A remarkably worldly 10 year old indeed.

No, but I'm sure Dodgson was and he was the one telling the stories. My point is that the stories were originally just meant as stories to entertain a friend of the family. The stories were made up for Alice Liddell, and the main character is named Alice because he was telling stories to entertain her. It wasn't meant to originally be a highbrow satire even if it is a work that encourages us to think in the end.

There's also another somewhat contentious school of thought that has doggedly maintained that Dodgson's work represents a mathematical conceit/conundrum, and have been laboring for decades to solve it's intrinsic formula.

No.... everyone knows that Christopher Robin is in a coma from a bicycle accident when he was trying to run away from the suicide murder of his mom and dad and all the animals in the Hundred Acre Wood are his beloved stuffed animals. They each represent either a stage of life Robin will never experience or his feelings. So Tiger is his teenaged years, being excited easily and very open to new experiences, while Rabbit represents his adulthood he will never experience; constant work and frustrations with little pay off, with owl being is late adulthood.

As for the rest of the stuffed animals; Roo is his (small amount of) happiness. Kanga is clearly his mother, but we will get back to her later. Piglet is his fears of the unknown and needs constant reassurance by Pooh, who is Robin's desire to stay in this peaceful existence in the Hundred Acre Wood. While Eeyore is his self awareness, completely depressed over the fact that he is going to die any day now and because of that shuts himself away from the rest of the community.

And have you ever wondered why Roo has a loving mother, but no father? It's because he saw his dad kill his mom and then himself, and so he shuts away most memories of his father. It's also part of the reason Pooh takes place in the woods, Robin was a kid that was abused by his peers for loving stuffed animals and his dad for being a "wimp", so he would take trips to the woods, the only place he felt peace. It was also where he crashed his bike. And speaking of dads, the only time he is brought up, he is represented by Helphalumps. And the bullies he had were Woozles....

And so, Robin rests in the hospital bed, while in his dreams, he is laughing, saying, "Silly old bear" to the stuffed bear he considered his only friend.

Or something like that.

I've always thought the characters in that particular cartoon were a bit... slow in the head.
