A common thread we see in Alice in Wonderland and Lord of the Rings (LOTR) is power. Compare and contrast the representations of power in the two films. Some points that might help is to consider who has the power and what the different types of power are.
In this week’s lecture, the professor talked about the “madness” of power in Alice in Wonderland. What is this madness, and do we also see it in LOTR?
Lastly, choose a LOTR meme (you can choose any from the LOTR memes discussion on canvas or any other ones that you find. Just be sure you attach the memes you’re discussing to your post). When thinking about memes through the lens of adaptation, please tell us what elements are being adapted here? What kinds of background knowledge does the meme (or memes if you wish to discuss more than one) require?
