35 Inspirational Lewis Carroll Quotes On Success

Lewis Carroll (real name Charles Lutwidge Dodgson) was an English writer of world-famous children’s fiction, notably Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel Through the Looking Glass. He was noted for his facility at wordplay, logic, and fantasy. The poems Jabberwocky and The Hunting of the Snark are classified in the genre of literary nonsense. He was also a mathematician, photographer, and Anglican deacon. Carroll came from a family of high-church Anglicans and developed a long relationship with Christ Church, Oxford, where he lived for most of his life as a scholar and teacher. Alice Liddell, daughter of the Dean of Christ Church, Henry Liddell, is widely identified as the original for Alice in Wonderland, though Carroll always denied this. Born in All Saints’ Vicarage, Daresbury, Cheshire in 1832, Carroll is commemorated at All Saints’ Church, Daresbury in its stained glass windows depicting characters from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. In 1982, a memorial stone to Carroll was unveiled in Poets’ Corner, Westminister Abbey.
