Lewis Carroll
Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) was an Anglican deacon and a tutor in mathematics--his great love--at Oxford. All his life, he was fond of puzzles and word games, and he published several mathematical treatises. He was also an amateur photographer, specializing in portraits of children which, in the late 20th century, are considered somewhat ambiguous. His great works, ALICE IN WONDERLAND (1865) and THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS (1872) were written to amuse the daughters of a friend; Lewis Carroll himself, though he loved children, never produced any. Carroll's books are full of wonders, and are often quoted; perhaps the most famous quote is something the Red Queen says in THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS: "Now here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!"
From the Publisher
Annotation As he escorted the three young daughters of a colleague on a trip up the river Isis, the Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson invented ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND, the story of a little girl who tumbles down a rabbit hole. Written down expressly for Alice Liddell, the story was originally entitled ALICE'S ADVENTURES UNDERGROUND, but it is also known as ALICE IN WONDERLAND, and it was published under the name of Lewis Carroll. The book is full of such wonderfully eccentric characters as the Queen of Hearts, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the Cheshire Cat, the Mock Turtle, and the Mad Hatter. The book is simultaneously a political allegory, a parody of Victorian children's literature, a fairy tale, a dream, and a child's chronicle of growing up. Carroll also wrote a sequel entitled THROUGH THE LOOKING-GLASS AND WHAT ALICE FOUND THERE.
First Line Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank and of having nothing to do. Once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in it, "and what is the use of a book," thought Alice, "with no pictures or conversations?"
