In this retelling of the Alice in Wonderland story set in Aboriginal Australia, the White Rabbit becomes the Kangaroo 'not, it should be emphasized, because there is no Pitjantjatjara word for 'rabbit', but simply because an Aboriginal Alice would naturally have seen a kangaroo in her dream.' (viii). Similarly the Red Queen is the Witch Spirit and the Caterpillar becomes a Witchety Grub while the Queen's Croquet Party becomes the Corroboree of the Witch Spirit. ('Introduction to Alitji' in Nancy Sheppard Alitjinya Ngura Tjukurtjarangka=Alitji in the Dreamtime (1975): viii).

— Appears in: Antipodes , December vol. 29 no. 2 2015; (p. 343-352)
'My chief purpose in this essay is to discuss influences that helped shape Patrick White's thought as he wrote the most individual of his novels, The Aunt's Story (1948). I also seek to place The Aunt's Story in historical context in its theme of the exploration of the psyche through the analysis of dreaming. That important theme was propelled into late nineteenth- early twentieth-century literature by Lewis Carrol's two stories, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865) and Through the Looking -Glass (1871)...(343)
