Happy birthday Lewis Carroll. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (27 January 1832 – 14 January 1898), better known by the pseudonym Lewis Carroll, was an English author, mathematician, logician, Anglican deacon and photographer. His most famous writings are Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel Through the Looking-Glass, as well as the poems “The Hunting of the Snark” and “Jabberwocky”, all examples of the genre of literary nonsense. He is noted for his facility at word play, logic, and fantasy, and there are societies dedicated to the enjoyment and promotion of his works and the investigation of his life in many parts of the world, including the United Kingdom, Japan, the United States, and New Zealand.

We are all mad

‘But I don’t want to go among mad people,’ said Alice. ‘Oh, you can’t help that,’ said the cat. ‘We’re all mad here.’

Everything’s got a moral, if only you can find it.

Lewis Carroll (Charles Lutwidge Dodgson) (1832-98), British writer and photographer. A lecturer in mathematics at Christ Church, Oxford, he is remembered as the author of the children’s classics Alice s Adventures in Wonderland (1865), and Through the Looking-Glass (1871) written for Alice Liddell, the young daughter of the classicist Henry George Liddell. Both describe a child’s dream adventures, and were first illustrated by Sir John Tenniel. Unlike most children’s literature of that period they were neither moralistic nor instructive. Their fantasy, satire, and surrealism make them equally appealing to adults. He also wrote inspired humorous and nonsense verse, notably The Hunting of the Snark (1876). Carroll was a respected portrait photographer. At first a typical Victorian ‘lion- hunter’, he sought out celebrities to pose for his camera, but he later concentrated on photographing children, particularly little girls. He excelled in getting them to look relaxed: his masterpiece is a study of Alice Liddell as a ‘beggar girl’. Carroll gave up photography in 1880 and his lectureship a year later, presumably to concentrate on writing, the greatest of his talents.
