Successful author, pioneer photographer, mathematical gift and writer of the verse of nonsense, Lewis Carroll remains a source of fascination to continue his work.Although many have sought to understand this complex man, there remains for many an enigma.Leading now international authority, Edward Wakeling, offers his unique assessment of the man born Charles Dodgson, but that the world knows it better than Lewis Carroll, author of Alice’s adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass.Carroll’s new biography presents a cost estimate based on his social circleContrary to the many previous authors, Carroll’s circle was not child-centred: his correspondence was enormous, almost 100,000 numbering elements at the time of his death and included royalties and most of the greatest artists, illustrators, publishers, academics, musicians and composers of the Victorian era.Edward Wakeling relies on his personal database of almost 6,000 letters, most of them never published, to fill in the gaps left by previous biographies and to solve some of Lewis Carroll’s key myths, such as his friendships with children and his drug use.Meticulously documented and based on the study of a lifetime of man and his work, this important new work will be an essential reading for researchers and admirers of one of the leading authors of the Victorian era.
