Summary

Just when we thought we knew everything about Lewis Carroll, here comes this ''insightful . . . scholarly . . . serious''- (John Butcher, American Scientist ) biography that will appeal to Alice fans everywhere. Fascinated by the inner life of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, Robin Wilson, a Carroll scholar and a noted mathematics professor, has produced this revelatory book ??filled with more than one hundred striking and often playful illustrations ??that examines the many inspirations and sources for Carroll ??s fantastical writings, mathematical and otherwise. As Wilson demonstrates, Carroll made significant contributions to subjects as varied as voting patterns and the design of tennis tournaments, in the process creating large numbers of imaginative recreational puzzles based on mathematical ideas.
