In fact, the famous writer Lewis Carroll was an English
mathematician, logician, philosopher, Anglican deacon and
photographer Charles Lutwidge Dodgson.
He was born on January 27, 1832, in a house of a highly conservative cleric of the Church of England. Growing up with his seven brothers and four sisters, he showed them tricks, performed puppet shows and wrote poems that he published himself in the self-made family newspaper. As many other strange people, Lewis-Charles was left-handed.
He died on 14 January, 1898 at his sisters' home, "The Chestnuts" in Guildford, from influenza followed by pneumonia. He was two weeks from turning 66 years old. Almost immediately after his death, the biggest part of his manuscript patrimony was burned by his brothers, who just did not know what to do with all this enormous bundles of paper.
Even if Carroll is famous first of all as the author of Alice’s adventures, he also wrote many other works, including ‘an agony in 8 fits’ “Hunting of the Snark”, the poem “Phantasmagoria”, the novel “Sylvia and Bruno” and many scientific books about logic and mathematics.
