Description - The Complete Illustrated Lewis Carroll by Lewis Carroll
Lewis Carroll (Charles Lutwidge Dodgson) is famed for his magical stories, 'Alice in Wonderland' and 'Through the Looking-Glass', here illustrated throughout the inner pages by Sir John Tenniel's much loved drawings. However, inspired by the insatiable Victorian appetite for party games, tricks and conundrums, this eccentric and polymathical Englishman also wrote many other works of a humorous, witty, whimsical and nonsensical nature such as the mock-heroic nonsense verse 'The Hunting of the Snark', as well as dozens of other verses, stories, acrostics and puzzles, all of which are included in this volume. Oxford scholar, Church of England Deacon, University Lecturer in Mathematics and Logic, academic author of learned theses, gifted pioneer of portrait photography, colourful writer of imaginative genius and yet a shy and pedantic man, Lewis Carroll stands pre-eminent in the pantheon of inventive literary geniuses. AUTHOR: Charles Lutwidge (27 January 1832 14 January 1898), better known by the pen name Lewis Carroll was an English author, mathematician, logician, Anglican and photographer. His most famous writings are 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' and its sequel 'Through the Looking Glass' as well as the poems 'The Hunting of the Snark' and 'jabberwocky', all considered to be within the genre of literary nonsense. His facility at word play, logic, and fantasy has delighted audiences ranging from children to the literary elite, and beyond this his work has become embedded deeply in modern culture, directly influencing many artists.
