Lewis Carroll

1832-1898

Lewis Carroll, born Charles Lutwidge Dodgson on January 27, 1832, in Daresbury, Cheshire, England, was a multifaceted figure known primarily for his literary masterpiece, "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland." Raised in a family of clergymen, Dodgson exhibited an early aptitude for mathematics and literature, eventually studying at Christ Church, Oxford, where he later became a mathematics lecturer.

Under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll, Dodgson published "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" in 1865, followed by its sequel, "Through the Looking-Glass" in 1871. These whimsical tales, characterized by their surrealism and wordplay, have captivated generations of readers with their imaginative worlds and memorable characters.

Beyond his literary endeavors, Carroll was also a skilled photographer, capturing portraits of notable figures of his time. His keen interest in logic, mathematics, and puzzles contributed to the intricate and nonsensical nature of his storytelling.

Despite his success, Carroll's personal life was marked by a sense of mystery and controversy, with speculation surrounding his relationships with young girls, including Alice Liddell, the inspiration for his iconic protagonist.

Lewis Carroll passed away on January 14, 1898, leaving behind a legacy that continues to enchant and inspire readers worldwide. His contributions to literature and photography remain celebrated, ensuring his place among the most influential figures of the Victorian era and beyond.
