Portrait of Lewis Carroll
Lewis Carroll

Born 27th of January, 1832, Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, or otherwise known as Lewis Carrol, was a famous English author, mathematician, logician, Anglican deacon and photographer.

He is most loved by many people, including me, because of his classic book, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and its amazing sequel, Through the Looking-Glass.

In fact one of my favorite books is Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. He is also known for some of his rather popular poems, “The Hunting of the Snark” and “Jabberwocky”.

What amazes me is that though he was a person who stammers, and a person who is epileptic he didn’t let that stop him from writing a treasured story for all ages, young and old, that is still loved today.

He is also loved for the work he did in word play, logic and fantasy, which we all seem to enjoy secretly or not. Sadly he died on the 14th of January 1898, but like I said, we still love him.

I think that it is really cool that though he had a disability he overcame it and became one of the most loved authors of all time. His story really inspires me, as he became an amazing person that we respect very highly in society.
