Summary

Alice in Wonderland tells the story of a little girl named Alice who falls into a rabbit-hole and ends up in a magical-fantasy world populated by strange creatures and talking animals. This monologue is right at the beginning of the story. Alice is sitting on the riverbank with her sister, reading a book. All of a sudden she sees a white rabbit, wearing a coat and carrying a watch, run past her. The rabbit complains that he is late. She follows the rabbit and ends up falling down a rabbit hole...

Excerpt

ALICE: [Angrily] Why, how impolite of him. I asked him a civil question, and he pretended not to hear me. That's not at all nice. [Calling after him] I say, Mr. White Rabbit, where are you going? Hmmm. He won't answer me. And I do so want to know what he is late for. I wonder if I might follow him. Why not? There's no rule that I mayn't go where I please. I--I will follow him. Wait for me, Mr. White Rabbit. I'm coming, too! [Falling] How curious. I never realized that rabbit holes were so dark . . . and so long . . . and so empty. I believe I have been falling for five minutes, and I still can't see the bottom! Hmph!. . . . . After such a fall as this, I shall think nothing of tumbling downstairs. How brave they'll all think me at home. Why, I wouldn't say anything about it even if I fell off the top of the house! I wonder how many miles I've fallen by this time. I must be getting somewhere near the center of the earth. I wonder if I shall fall right through the earth! How funny that would be. Oh, I think I see the bottom. Yes, I'm sure I see the bottom. I shall hit the bottom, hit it very hard, and oh, how it will hurt!
