Lewis Carroll

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (pronounced /?d?ds?n/, DOD-s?n; 27
January 1832 – 14 January 1898), better known by the pseudonym
Lewis Carroll (/?kær?l/, KA-r?l), was an English author,
mathematician, logician, Anglican deacon and photographer. His most
famous writings are Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel
Through the Looking-Glass, as well as the poems "The Hunting of
the Snark" and "Jabberwocky", all examples of the
genre of literary nonsense. He is noted for his facility at word
play, logic, and fantasy, and there are societies dedicated to the
enjoyment and promotion of his works and the investigation of his
life in many parts of the world, including the United Kingdom, Japan,
the United States, and New Zealand.
