About Lewis Carroll

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832-1898), known by his pen name, Lewis Carroll, was an English mathematician, photographer, and prolific writer, especially known for his beloved books Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass. Preferring the company of children to adults, his Alice books were inspired by his friendship with the young Alice Liddell, the daughter of the Dean of Christ Church, where Carroll was a mathematics instructor.

LORI CAMPBELL is a lecturer at the University of Pittsburgh, where she teaches courses in 19th- and 20th-century literature and cultural studies. She is the author of Portals of Power: Magical Agency and Transformation in Literary Fantasy.
