Lewis Carroll

January 27 1832 - January 14 1898
Born in Daresbury CHeshire Egland

Lewis Carroll's real name was Charles L. Dodgson. He was the eldest of his 11 siblings. he excelled in math and won many scholarships, he took the scholarship to Christ College. Lewis had a very bad stammer, although when he found himself talking to children he spoke very fluently. He once met a small girl whose name was Alice. He began to tell her stories that would later become his most extraordinary works, like Alice in Wonderland.

Lewis Carroll is famous for many writings such as Alice in Wonderland. His books and poems have inspired many people. Although  most of his writings are for little children many adults find his work extraordinary. My favorite poem my Lewis Carroll is The Walrus and the Carpenter.

Jabberwocky

'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves Did gyre and gimble in the wabe; All mimsy were the borogoves, And the mome raths outgrabe. "Beware the Jabberwock, my son The jaws that bite, the claws that catch! Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun The frumious Bandersnatch!" He took his vorpal sword in hand; Long time the manxome foe he sought— So rested he by the Tumtum tree, And stood awhile in thought. And, as in uffish thought he stood, The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame, Came whiffling through the tulgey wood, And burbled as it came! One, two! One, two! And through and through The vorpal blade went snicker-snack! He left it dead, and with its head He went galumphing back. "And hast thou slain the Jabberwock? Come to my arms, my beamish boy! O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!" He chortled in his joy. 'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves Did gyre and gimble in the wabe; All mimsy were the borogoves, And the mome raths outgrabe. -
