Author Fun Facts: Lewis Carroll

Hey Everyone!

It’s that time to do another one of my author fun facts posts! Today’s author is none other than the author of Alice in Wonderland Lewis Carroll. I don’t know about you, but I don’t know that much about this author. I decided to do Lewis Carroll because I love Alice in Wonderland, and I wanted to learn more about him. These posts are meant to educate you on authors that you may not know a lot or anything about.

Let’s get this list of facts started:

 

  • His real name was Charles Lutwidge Dodgson
  • He invented a way to allow people to write in the dark
  • Most of his life he had a stutter
  • The do-do in Alice in Wonderland he created based off of him
  • He wrote 11 books about math
  • Someone actually believed he could be the serial killer Jack the Ripper
  • He taught math at Oxford University
  • He was born on January 27, 1832
  • He suffered from chronic migraines, and epilepsy, stammering, partial deafness, and ADHD
  • His inspiration for the Cheshire Cat came from cheese molds
  • He basically collected microscopes
  • In Alice in Wonderland he infused logic and word puzzles

 

I hope you all learned something new about this author that you didn’t know, I know I did!
