Charles Lutwidge Dodgson Biography:

Produced on January 27, 1832 in Daresbury, Cheshire, England, Charles Dodgson composed and created games as a kid. Dodgson was self-conscious but loved creating stories for kids. His novels including “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” were released under the pen name Lewis Carroll. The oldest boy in a family group of 11 kids, Carroll was quite adept at amusing himself and his sibs. As a lad, Carroll shone in math and won many academic prizes. At age 20, he was given a studentship (called a scholarship in other schools) to Christ College. Besides serving as a lecturer in math, he was an enthusiastic photographer and composed essays, political pamphlets and poetry. “The Hunting of the Snark” shows his amazing skill in the genre of literary rubbish.

Carroll suffered from a poor stammer, however he found himself vocally eloquent when talking with kids. The relationships he had with young people in his mature years are of great interest, as they certainly inspired his best known writings and have been a stage of disturbed guess over time. Carroll loved to amuse kids, also it was Alice, the daughter of Henry George Liddell, who could be credited along with his pinnacle motivation. Alice Liddell recalls spending many hours with Carroll, sitting on his sofa while he told wonderful stories of dream worlds. When Alice arrived home, she exclaimed he should write the story down for her.

He met the small girl’s request, and via a number of coincidences, the story fell to the control of the novelist Henry Kingsley, who encouraged Carroll to print it. The novel Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland was launched in 1865. From the time of his departure, Alice had become the most widely used children’s book in England, and by 1932 it was among the most used on the planet. Besides composing, Carroll created several fine pictures. His famous portraits include those of the actress Ellen Terry as well as the poet Alfred Tennyson. He also photographed kids in every potential costume and scenario, eventually making naked studies of these. Despite conjecture, little real evidence of child abuse may be brought against him. Just before his 66th birthday, Lewis Carroll found a serious case of flu, which caused pneumonia.
