First of all, what is the definition of strange?

To many, it is something that is rather out of place and doesn’t seem to belong. This can pertain to Alice in many ways. When Alice is first arriving in this strange place, she is the one that doesn’t seem to fit in. All of the characters that Alice encounters perceive her to be the one that doesn’t blend in with their surroundings. For instance, when Alice meets the characters at the tea party, (The Mad Hatter, The March Hare, and The Mouse) they carry on a conversation that would seem ridiculous for a normal person like Alice to comprehend. However, to them, Alice is the one that doesn’t understand what is going on. Throughout the story, Alice is constantly coming across situations that would only be appropriate for a dream.

It depends on the circumstances on what is normal and what is not. In Alice’s dream, talking animals, disappearing cats, and talking playing cards are not considered out of the ordinary. Sometimes, in real life, things that appear to be strange do have a place in reality. If the situation calls for it, we can also change our ways to fit the circumstances. If we don’t know how to fit into our environment, we would appear strange, just like Alice. It would be nice to be like Alice. Somehow, even though she is the odd character, those around her accept that she is strange. Even though they realize this, they somehow go on with their lives and get to know her better. Alice is just like everybody else on this planet. Every single person on this earth wants to be able to fit and blend in with everybody else.
