Jan 27, Lewis Caroll (Alice in Wonderland) Born. Find Literature and videos

27th January 1832 was the day when Charles Lutwidge Dodgson - (pen name Lewis Caroll) was born. A British Author, well known for her children's Literature was also a distinguished mathematician and logician who wrote several mathematical treatises as well as fiction and poetry, Lewis Carroll is best known as the creator of the classic children's novel Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

What I find so noticeable is the Character. As Wiki refers, "The stammer has always been a potent part of the conceptions of Dodgson; it is part of the belief that he stammered only in adult company and was free and fluent with children, but there is no evidence to support this idea. Many children of his acquaintance remembered the stammer while many adults failed to notice it."

It is believed that Lewis caroll caricatured himself as the Dodo in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and find difficulty in pronouncing his last name.

Well, here's the profile of Lewis Caroll in Literature Index and you can Add the Profile to your Literature Scrap Book. If children have yet now started a Literature Profiles Scrap Book, here's a Project to start right away and get them to add "A Character a Month" and be Literature savvy. Just like me:-) Believe it, English Literature is endless learning and so is Internet - Information Super Highway! Enjoy!
