Author: Lewis Carroll
Lewis Carroll is the pseudonym of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832-1898), a humorist and writer of children's literature. The child of a scholarly country parson, he was born at Daresbury in Cheshire and attended a Yorkshire grammar school and Rugby. At Oxford he studied mathematics, obtaining a university post but lecturing and teaching with difficulties because of his habitual shyness and bad stammer. He produced several mathematical textbooks and some occasional comic writing.
