Lewis Carroll

1832–1898
Lewis Carroll

Since Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland first appeared in 1865, Lewis Carroll’s (Charles Lutwidge Dodgson) works have been loved by children and adults alike. His nonsense poetry and invented language create clear images of fantastic landscapes, animals, and heroes.

What People are Saying

"I did not expect to fall in love with poetry. I just expected to recite and be done with it. After just sitting there and analyzing my poems, I realized that the stories told through these few words mean so much. I had to step out of myself and step into the author's shoes, and with that comes great work."
