|Lewis Carroll (1832-1898), list of works|
|A shy, eccentric mathematician, Charles Lutwidge Dodgson suffered from a moderate stutter when attempting to interact with adults - the impediment completely disappeared, however, when he talked to young children. Only truly comfortable around children, Dodgson amused the famous Alice, Edith, and Lorina Liddell, the young daughters of the Dean of Christchurch, by telling stories. They were so taken with his stories that he wrote them down in the two Alice books, published under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll. Although they were written for children's amusement, the fanciful narratives are underscored with intricate wordplay, complex philosophical questioning, and biting satire of Victorian mores.|
