Robert Douglas-Fairhurst illuminates two entangled lives: the Oxford mathematician Charles Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) and Alice Liddell, the child for whom he invented the Alice stories. This relationship influenced Carroll’s imaginative creation of Wonderland―a sheltered world apart during the stormy transition from the Victorian to the modern era

Book Description Vintage Publishing, United Kingdom, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2015 COSTA BIOGRAPHY AWARD This is the secret history of Alice s Adventures in Wonderland. Wonderland is part of our cultural heritage. But beneath the fairy tale lies the complex history of the author and his subject. Charles Dodgson was a quiet academic but his second self, Lewis Carroll, was a storyteller, innovator and avid collector of `child-friends . Carroll s imagination was to give Alice Liddell, his dream-child , a fictional alter ego that would never let her grow up. This is a biography that beautifully unravels the magic of Alice. It is a history of love and loss, innocence and ambiguity. It is the story of one man s need to make a Wonderland in a changing world. Seller Inventory # AAZ9780099594031
