The Queen of Hearts' Gothic Roots

In Tim Burton's Gothic masterpiece Alice in Wonderland, the Queen of Hearts is one of the most memorable characters. With her bright red lips and crazy hair, she is the perfect symbol of love gone mad. In honor of Valentine's Day, we are taking a look at this twisted queen and her love for all things violent and dark.

The Queen of Hearts is a character full of contradictions. She is both loving and cruel, gentle and violent. She represents the dark side of love, which can be passionate and all-consuming but also dangerous and destructive. This makes her the perfect symbol for Valentine's Day, a holiday that can be filled with joy and happiness but also heartache and pain.
