  • We all believe that we are mad in some kind of way. That is what makes our imagination so special. Imagination is what makes a poet so unique in their writing.
  • Let’s join Alice Liddel as she follows the White Rabbit into the rabbit hole towards Wonderland and meet a very brilliant and distinctive poet, Lewis Carroll.
  • >Charles had written many Mathematical books but he only used Lewis Carroll for his children books >His pen name cam from a translation in Latin as "Carolus Lodovicus", then anglicized and reversing their order. > He is famous for his well known Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the looking glass and what Alice Found there.
  • >Charles was enrolled to Rugby School. After Rugby he enrolled to the University of Oxford. He followed his father’s wishes to attend Christ Church University. >He married his cousin Francis Jane Lutwidge in 1827
  • >During his years as a student Charles was bullied by older boys.He was not the best speaker and had a stutter. He had suffered illness during his time. He had the Whooping cough that had left him with a persistent cough which returns once in a while during his lifetime. The measles that had left his left year deaf and it can not be improved. >As a photographer his models were young children mainly young girls. >His favorite model was Alice Liddle who he had a very unhealthy friendship with. He was inspired by her to write Alice in Wonderland and is the main character. Charles wanted to marry Alice when she was 11 years old.
  • Looks like the white rabbit wants me to get to two of Lewis’ poems.
  • Most of Lewis Carroll’s are written with words he made up or nonsense words. 1 st Stanza: There is a lot if imagery. The way the sentence is constructed is different from any poem. \\ 2 nd Stanza: Describes the dangerous creatures and the how dangerous the Jabberwocky is. 3 rd Stanza: The “he” with the vorpal sword is the hero who is a mere boy. 4 th Stanza: The creatures comes towards the hero. 5 th Stanza; The boy slays the Jabberwocky. 6 th Stanza: His father is proud of the boy. 7 th Stanza: Returns to the beginning of the poem.
  • >Stanza 1-2: Refers to a rowing trip Charles took with Alice Liddle and her two younger sisters, Edith and Lorina. >Stanza 3-4: Charles is fading away from the Liddle family between the publications of Alice in Wonderland and Through the looking glass. >Stanza 5-6: It looks forward and anticipates that the children in upcoming generations will enjoy the books. >Finality: Revise the first two stanzas but it uses it as a metaphor to life. >The poem's an acrostic riddle containing its own answer: the first letter of each line spells out Alice Pleasance Liddell --the original Alice.
  • >It’s an expansion of the centuries-old child’s song. >Charles had limited it exactly twenty-one lines, one for each letter of Alice's name. These triplets create a strange mood of things left undone, things cut off early--a mood to suit his theme. >Things are left undone like his future with Alice >Alice grew up too fast >The end of his friendship with Alice and her family >Our ideas and dreams live on but not us.
