Lewis Carroll Alice in Wonderland

Task 1. Study Lewis Carroll’s biography

Lewis Carroll was born in 1832 and died in 1898. He is famous as an author of two of the best-known and best-loved children’s books ever written: Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. He is also remembered for his neologisms and nonsense rhymes.

Lewis Carroll is the pseudonym of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. He invented this pseudonym by translating his two first names back into English from Latin and reversing their order.

Lewis Carroll showed his talent for writing at an early age. He received good education and became mathematical lecturer at Oxford where he worked until his retirement. He was ordained as a clergyman in 1861, and did not have a family of his own. He was a shy man, handicapped by a stammer. His self-consciousness was lessened only in the presence of children. Alice Liddell, one of the daughters of the Dean of Christ Church, was the greatest among his “child friends”. He dedicated both of his novels to Alice.

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland was an instant success when it was first published and together with Through the Looking Glass, has remained popular with children and adults alike ever since.
