Today is Mr. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson’s birthday, but in 1832. He was a maths scholar and teacher at Christ Church, Oxford, England. He is best known today by his pen name, Lewis Carroll, and in 1865 published ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’. ‘Through the Looking Glass’ followed in 1871.
Rhinos have loved his work from the very beginning, sharing his convoluted narratives and bizarre characters. All very witty and double-edged nonsense. These books have too many virtues and surprises and delights to enumerate. (Meaning more than 3).
We encapsulate his work with the expression “Wow!”
Thanks for the reminder to celebrate his memory. P
