Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, celebrated under his pseudonym Lewis Carroll, was born in 1832. His fascination with word games, puzzles and writing was evident from an early age. He was educated at Rugby School and then Christ Church, Oxford, where he was later appointed lecturer in mathematics and subsequently spent the rest of his life there. His most famous works are Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865), its sequel Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There (1871) and The Hunting of the Snark (1876). He died, unmarried, in 1898.
