Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) was born in 1832. Already reading The Pilgrim's Progress at the age of seven, his exceptional intelligence was apparent from the outset - his Mathematics master at Rugby wrote of him, 'I have not had a more promising boy at his age' - and he went on to be awarded a double first class honours in Maths at Christ Church, Oxford. Despite going on to hold a lectureship at Christ Church for twenty-six years, however, Dodgson found it difficult to apply himself to academic work, and it is for his extraordinary literary works that he is known. His two Alice books were originally composed for the daughter of the dean of his college, Alice Liddell, and are the most famous and enduring of his works along with The Hunting of the Snark, a book of nonsense verse. He also wrote works on logic and satirical pamphlets on Oxford politics, and became a pioneering amateur portrait photographer, specializing in Victorian celebrities and children. He died in 1898, at the age of sixty-five.
