A Partial Vindication of Carroll's Hatter: Head Games and Ambiguity in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

Fernando J. Soto

Abstract


What?!! When Alice joins the Hatter and the March Hare at the famous Tea-party table, could it be Alice who's rude? And might the Hatter be sane, even helpful? Most Carroll scholarship would disagree. But Fernando J. Soto makes a convincing case for revisiting the Tea-party to see whose manners really need minding. He also proposes Alice may have a scalp disease that would definitely put you off your tea!
