Famously known for his children’s books such as Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll is considered one of the best authors of his time with his unique writing structure and amazing stories. Chelsea House Publishers say, “Lewis Carroll is popularly considered the greatest of English nonsense writers.”€ (Bloom) and this should live on forever.

Lewis Carroll was born January 27, 1832 in Cheshire, England. He was born as Charles Dodgson but his pen name is Lewis Carroll. The reason for creating a pen name was to “keep his two professional lives separate.”€ (Moss). He was a writer and a professor. He was the “eldest of eleven children”€ (Carroll) with four boys and seven girls. Pretty big family if you ask me. Growing up, he didn’t go to school until he reached twelve years old and was sent to Rutland, a nearby school. When he was 14, he then went to Rugby and earned excellent grades in classical languages and mathematics. There wasn’t much excitement in his life up until he reached eighteen years of age.
“At 18, Carroll entered college at Christ Church College, Oxford University”€ (Lewis). He went to school to become a mathematics teacher and earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees. Once he reached these degrees, he then began teaching mathematics at Oxford where he had received his schooling. Carroll taught at Oxford for most of his life. He really didn’t want to do anything other than teach.
While he was growing up, he always enjoyed making up games for his younger brothers and sisters. He loved being around his younger siblings and making them enjoy their youth. As an adult, he would put small parties together for the younger children he knew. The children were the main purpose for why he started writing his stories. He began writing them in short sequences but as other authors read them, they persuaded Carroll to publish them all as one story which became Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. It
