Meet the Author

Lewis Carroll
Lewis Carroll was the pseudonym of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. He was born on 27th January 1832 in the county of Cheshire, England and was the third of eleven children. Carroll went to study at Oxford University's Christ Church.
Henry Liddell arrived at Christ Church with his wife and children to serve as the new dean. Carroll became a close friend to the family, and would entertain Liddell's children with his fantastic stories. At the insistence of Alice, one of Liddell's daughters, Carroll wrote Alice's Adventures Underground in 1864. This collection of stories served as the basis for Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, which was published one year later.

When Alice's Adventures in Wonderland became an overwhelming success, Carroll published a sequel, known as Through the Looking Glass, in 1872. As he continued with his writing and teaching careers, Carroll also pursued a number of other passions including art and photography. He is also credited with inventing a word game known as Doublets.

Lewis Carroll passed away on 14th January 1898 at the age of 65.

Biography

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, known by his pen name, Lewis Carroll, was a man of diverse interests -- in mathematics, logic, photgraphy, art, theater, religion, medicine, and science. He was happiest in the company of children for whom he created puzzles, clever games, and charming letters.

As all Carroll admirers know, his book Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865), became an immediate success and has since been translated into more than eighty languages. The equally popular sequel Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, was published in 1872.

The Alice books are but one example of his wide ranging authorship. The Hunting of the Snark, a classic nonsense epic (1876) and Euclid and His Modern Rivals, a rare example of humorous work concerning mathematics, still entice and intrigue today's students. Sylvie and Bruno, published toward the end of his life contains startling ideas including an 1889 description of weightlessness.

The humor, sparkling wit and genius of this Victorian Englishman have lasted for more than a century. His books are among the most quoted works in the English language, and his influence (with that of his illustrator, Sir John Tenniel) can be seen everywhere, from the world of advertising to that of atomic physics.
