Q: Was Carroll on drugs when
he wrote the Alice books, or are the books about drugs?
A: No. Carroll did not use drugs while
writing the story. The larger part of the story was invented when he was on a
boat trip with a friend, the real Alice and her sisters. He invented it
while they rowed. The drug rumor was
first spread in the 1960’s by supporters of the then new LSD subculture. The
rumor is believed to have originated from the psychiatrists who introduced LSD
into our society.
There is indeed one part in the book that may describe the use of
drugs: the hookah smoking Caterpillar who advises Alice to eat from the mushroom. But
with the story Carroll made fun of all aspects of society, and it may be
possible that he was just reflecting the age with this part.
In the Victorian era there were no drug laws like we know them. Opium, cocaine, and laudanum (a
painkiller that contained opium) were used for medicinal purposes,
and could be obtained from a pharmacist (mind that LSD was not yet invented at the time!).
So in Carroll’s days it was not uncommon to experience the effect of being ‘high’, whether
or not accidentally.
However, it was definitely not Carroll’s intention to write a
book about drugs: he wanted to entertain a
little girl whom he loved. The chapter about the hookah smoking
caterpillar wasn’t even part of the original story; it was added later
when Carroll decided to
Some people insist that one has to be on drugs to write such a
creative story. But why shouldn’t someone have a
creative mind of his own?
If Carroll was on drugs, the Alice books would probably be a series of rambling, disconnected,
surrealist scenarios. But the Alice books are far from random. They contain some
very intricate logic problems and very clever puns (not to mention Alice’s
journey in “Through the Looking-Glass”, which follows the moves of a chess
game), that could only be the work of a sharp mind in full control of its
abilities. Furthermore, you’ll find the same style of writing in the magazines
he wrote in his youth, his various poems, stories, and other writings, and
especially in the letters he wrote. If the Alice books were drug induced, the
rest of his voluminous output would seem to suggest he was on drugs 24/7.
No evidence has ever been found that linked Carroll to recreational drug use.
Even in his extensive diaries, Carroll has never made any reference to the use of drugs.
As a bisexual, it sickens me that some people WILL keep scrolling.
As the straight daughter of a gay man, it sickens me that some people will keep scrolling.
As a straight girl with a basic understanding of equality and love, it also sickens me that people will keep scrolling.
As a straight Christian woman, I pray that people will not scroll past this. Love, not judge.
I’m re-reblogging for that last one.
