Lewis Carroll was one of the greatest writers the world has ever seen, and just because you're too world-absorbed and narrow-minded to understand poetry you don't have to insult him! Never read it, I admit, but I have a bright, vivid imagination and a theoretical mind to boot! If I were to read it, which I can't at the moment, being broke, I would probably love it! YOU are the stupid people! And in any case, LEWIS CARROLL ISN'T SUPPOSED MAKE SENSE!!! ITS ABOUT IMAGINATION!!!!!!!!!! Authoress
