Flann O’Brien’s novel, The Third Policeman , consists of many seemingly unrealistic events, thus sharing similarities with the fantastic piece, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. The events and characters within O’Brien’s storyline obtain no source of reason, leading to another wonderland. However, if particular components of the novel are studied further, and in relation to the aftereffects of trauma, O’Brien’s work is more realistic and logical than what is fantastically portrayed on the text’s surface.
