An English writer born in 1832. Under his real name—Charles Lutwidge Dodgson—he was known as a mathematician and a photographer, but the real fame came with his pen name: Lewis Carroll. From a young age, he wrote poetry and short stories for magazines, but his first real commercial success came about when he wrote his first book in 1865, ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’. Six years later, ‘Through the Looking-Glass’ was published as a sequel. Ever since this age, both novels are considered Classics of world literature.
