When it came to youngsters, Carroll had a unique affinity. One of Alice Liddell’s children urged him to write the tales he would relate to them on their travels. That’s precisely what he did, and Alice in Wonderland (1865) was shortly published by Lewis Carroll due to his efforts. In children’s literature, the book was a global best-seller and made him famous across the globe.

He also became well-known in the emerging art genre of photography. Often, his subjects were little children, whom he shot in a variety of settings and outfits. In 1881, he resigned from teaching and photography after a long career in which he had worked in various fields. Other of his well-known works is “Through the Looking-Glass” and “What Alice Found There” (1871), a sequel to the original Alice novel, as well as mathematical papers like “An Elementary Treatise on Determinants” (1867) and “Curiosa Mathematica” (1888).

On January 14, 1898, he passed away. Lewis Carroll quickly became one of English literature’s greatest writers, contending with Shakespeare and the Bible for literary supremacy. Wordplay, logic, and childlike imagination are what people remember him most.
