The magic World of Lewis Carroll

Lewis Carroll was born Charles Lutwidge Dodgson at Daresbury in Chesire, on 27 January 1832. He was an English author, mathematician, logician, anglican deacon and photographer.

What is Lewis Carroll most famous for?

Lewis Carroll is most famous for his story, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, published in 1865. It was written for Alice, the daughter of a friend.

Alice was a real girl, of course, and her name was Alice Liddell and she was about 10-years-old when Carroll came up with the concept for her adventures. 

His other writings included the sequel 'Through the Looking-Glass' as well as the poems "The Hunting of the Snark" and "Jabberwocky".

Jabberwocky

The poem Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll, is considered by many to be one of the greatest nonsense poems written in the English language. It was originally featured as a part of his novel 'Through the Looking-Glass', and 'What Alice Found There' (1871).

`Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!"

He took his vorpal sword in hand:
Long time the manxome foe he sought --
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
And stood awhile in thought.

And, as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! And through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.

"And, has thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!'
He chortled in his joy.

`Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

There is a good story about Queen Victoria enjoying Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland so much that she asked for a first edition of the author’s next book. Two years later a beautifully wrapped package arrived, containing an inscribed copy of An Elementary Treatise on Determinants: With Their Application to Simultaneous Linear Equations and Algebraical Geometry. Sadly, the story isn’t true.
