Abstract :
This paper sheds light upon the newly existed literary movement, the post-millennium 
structuralism, which is a complete deviation from the last century's movements. The paper 
experiments the literary approach of the latest phenomenon in a digital scene retrieved from 
of one of the most popular stories of the nineteenth century, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland 
by Lewis Carroll. The approach does not only indicate the importance of the deviations in the 
story that goes in parallel with the pace of the technological and materialistic world as 
children become more consciously aware at earlier ages, but also summons the EFL 
educators on the new standards of teaching literature to children. The paper also manifests the 
psychological and academic features of the non-native English learners during their 
developing years and how they involuntarily and intentionally construct the new teaching 
trends in literature, which would never be stabled as long as education presumes. 
Keywords :
