Abstract / Synopsis

In 2009, a literature scholar, Melanie Bayley, proposed that Lewis Carroll's famous books about Alice visiting the magical and illogical Wonderland were attempts to mock and critique the modern mathematics of the day. In this short paper, I aim to support Bayley's thesis and expound upon Carroll's artful use of symbolism to attack excessive use of symbolism in mathematics.
