Lewis Carroll

As a child

Lewis Carroll, a pseudonym of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, was born on 27 January, 1832. He was educated at Richmond School in Yorkshire, Rugby School and Christ Church, Oxford.

As an adult

From 1855 to 1881 Lewis Carroll was a mathematical lecturer at Oxford, where he was a somewhat eccentric and withdrawn character. He loved being with children and wrote many nonsense poems and books to entertain them. He died of bronchitis in his sister’s home in Guildford on 14 July, 1898.

As an artist

Lewis Carroll’s most famous works are Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (published in 1865) and the sequel Alice Through the Looking-Glass, which contained the nonsense poem classic The Jabberwocky (published in 1872). He wrote these tales to entertain Alice Liddell, daughter of the Dean of Christ Church.
