Dodgson, Charles Lutwidge, an English writer, better known as "Lewis Carroll." Born in 1833, he was educated at Christ Church, Oxford, where he graduated as B.A. in 1854, afterwards taking orders and becoming Senior Student of Christ Church: he is a distinguished mathematician. His Alice's Adrentures in Wonderland 'in 1865 achieved a wonderful success, as did his Alice Through the Looking- Glass in 1872. These works have been translated into many languages, and there are few, young or old, who are not familiar with "The Cheshire Cat," "The Duchess," "The Mock Turtle," and "The Jabberwock." Alice's Adventures have been successfully produced upon the stage. Other writings of the same author are The Hunting of the Snark, Phantasmagoria, Euclid and his Rivals, A Tangled Tale, and Game of Logic, Sylvie and Bruno.
