Alice's Name

Alice's name symbolizes two things. First of all, the meaning of the name is "of the nobility." When Alice first arrives, she acts as if she is above everyone else by telling them what to do. This makes Frank's telling her that she is hired help and that she should stay in the car ironic and a blow to her self-image.

Alice is also the name of the main character of the novel, Alice in Wonderland, and the situations of the two "Alices" are similar. Both go though an entrance that takes them into a different world than the one they came from - a world that is much crazier. In the end, they tell their story and leave others to discover it for themselves. In the novel, Alice leaves Isaac, and Alice in Alice in Wonderland leaves her sister.
