Description

This is the most significant biographical work on the author of Alice In Wonderland to be published in recent years. Karoline Leach's study contends that Carroll was far from being emotionally - and sexually - obsessed with female children and his `muse' Alice Liddell. She tells the strange story of how the false image of Carroll came into being and how he adored - and was adored by - women of all ages and enjoyed adult relationships that woud have scandalized the Victorian age in which he lived. In The Shadow of The Dreamchild is a radical re-evaluation of the life and work of one of England's most mysterious literary figures.
