Classic Poetry from Passions in Poetry


Lewis Carroll 1832 - 1898

English novelist and poet. Famous for his children's stories, especially Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865), Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There (1871). His children's poems include Phantasmagoria (published with other poems in 1869), The Hunting of the Snark (1876) and Sylvie and Bruno (1889). He also published various mathematical treatises of which the most notable is his light-hearted defence of Euclid, Euclid and his Modern Rivals. His stories and poems have been seen as revolutionising children's literature,
breaking with and even parodying the moral tales which had previously dominated.

Biography

Dodgson was a rector's son and third in a family of eleven. He showed artistic and literary talent from an early age, producing comic family magazines with the help of his brothers and sisters. He was educated at Rugby and Christchurch College, Oxford, where he afterwards became a lecturer in mathematics and remained for most of his life, developing also a keen interest in amateur photography.

He took great pleasure in the company of children, particularly young girls, and his most famous works stemmed from the stories he told to his young friends Lorina, Alice, and Edith Liddell. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland began as a story told to the girls on a boat trip up the Isis in Oxford.
