Short description:

He was an English writer of world-famous children's fiction, notably Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel Through the Looking-Glass.
He was noted for his facility at word play, logic, and fantasy.
The poems Jabberwocky and The Hunting of the Snark are classified in the genre of literary nonsense.
He was also a mathematician, photographer, and Anglican deacon.
Carroll came from a family of high-church Anglicans, and developed a long relationship with Christ Church, Oxford, where he lived for most of his life as a scholar and teacher.
Alice Liddell, daughter of the Dean of Christ Church, Henry Liddell, is widely identified as the original for Alice in Wonderland, though Carroll always denied this.
