For the child, the future lies undeniably beyond her (in a world of ever more sophisticated language skills), whereas for the adult, the future is something she must remember to return to. Carroll seems to be saying that children, in their rush to grow up, can pretend to be adults too soon; and adults can also, in a very different kind of game, forget how to be children舒that is, forget the sensual, even nonsensical desires of childhood, which endure in language as in life. It is not surprising that children love puns and riddles, just as kings and oracles do.

Alice thought to herself, 舠I don舗t see how he can ever finish, if he doesn舗t begin舡 (p. 108). When is a feeling not a feeling? Perhaps when you want to share a feeling that you can舗t. Alice舗s feelings and her conversations go nowhere because they have no one to go to. Alice generally experiences her emotions by herself舒that is, her emotions, like pity, are usually rapidly substituted by a chain of dissatisfaction and worry.
