Lewis Carroll Fairy Tales

Lewis Carroll

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson who is best known by the pen name Lewis Carroll. (27 January 1832 - 14 January 1898)

His most famous writings are The Hunting of the Snark, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel Through the Looking-Glass. Dodgson's family was predominantly northern English, with Irish connections.

During the earlier times in his life, young Dodgson was educated at home. At twelve he was sent away to a small private school at nearby Richmond, where he appears to have been happy and settled.

The young adult Charles Dodgson was about six feet tall, slender and deemed attractive, with curling brown hair and blue or grey eyes.

From a young age, Lewis Carroll wrote poetry and short stories, both contributing heavily to the family magazine Mischmasch and later sending them to various magazines. Between 1854 and 1856, his work appeared in the national publications. In 1856 he published his first piece of work under the name that would make him famous, a romantic poem called "Solitude".

"Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" was published in 1865 under the Lewis Carroll pen name, which Dodgson had first used some nine years earlier, and later in 1871, a sequel: "Through the Looking - Glass And What Alice Found There".

Over the remaining 20 years of his life, throughout his growing wealth and fame, his existence remained little changed. He continued to teach at Christ Church until 1881, and remained in residence there until his death.

Lewis Carroll died on 14 January 1898 at his sisters' home, in Guildford, of pneumonia following influenza.

Some other of his works: A Tangled Tale, Euclid and his Modern Rivals, Facts, He thought he saw an Elephant, Pillow Problems, Sylvie and Bruno, The Game of Logic, and many others.
