  1. 1. Lewis Carroll<br />Nicholas Foster<br />English 1102<br />Ms. Owens<br />17 July 2010<br />And His Works<br />
  2. 2. Brief Bio<br />Carroll was born in 1832, in Cheshire, England. <br />He grew up studying mathematics and English literature while graduating from Christ Church College at Oxford. <br />He later started lecturing at that same school and started writing children’s literature for a living. Carroll loved children. He was inspired early on by the head of the Oxford College’s daughter, Alice Liddell.<br />Carroll was known for being a Logician, Nonsense writer, Mathematician and Photographer.<br />
  3. 3. Carroll was inspired by the freedom and wisdom that childhood had to offer.<br />
  4. 4. Some of his best known works<br />Poems<br />Phantasmagoria<br />Jabberwocky<br />The Hunting of The Snark<br />The Looking Glass<br />
  5. 5. Books<br />Alice In wonderland<br />Through the looking glass<br />Alice’s Adventures Underground<br />The Game of logic<br />
  6. 6. Carroll’s Vision and style<br />Writings of fantasy and nonsense literature became widely known after works of Carroll’s were being produced and attracted many followers. Many acrostic and nonsense poems were created by him as well. <br />Carroll’s child-like mind as an adult never seemed to fail him on creating such an amusing sight for children to see and laugh about.<br />He did not want to be married or have kids of his own, but just share what his mind had to offer to children since he loved them so much.<br />
  7. 7. Inspirations<br />Carroll also inspired others to create books for children and even inspired some very well known music singers to write songs about his work. <br />Many people looked into his work for a life meaning. <br />In the late 1960’s two of the Beatles songs were inspired by the Alice books, ‘Lucy in the sky with Diamonds’ and ‘I am the Walrus’. <br />Carroll also attracted other well known famous people such as John Lennon, whose favorite books were the Alice books. <br />
  8. 8. His choices of words throughout his work were even so influential that he eventually helped shape our language too, creating words that are held now to this day in our dictionary. <br />One word for example, is portmanteaus such as chortle (chuckle, snort) that has been taken from his creation and put into today’s’ dictionary.<br />
  9. 9. Some of his photography<br />
