Lewis Carroll - Part1
Lewis Carroll's real name was Charles Lutwidge Dogson. When he grew up he meant to be a clergyman but he was so shy and he stammered so badly that he decided he could never preach sermons in public. So he became a tutor at Christ Church College, Oxford.
Charles Dogson was a very clever young man. He taught mathematics and was a gifted portrait painter. Like so many shy men, however, he found his best friends among children. They did not mind if he was slow in speech and they were never impatient if he stammered. Best of all, Charles found he had a wonderful audience among children for his stories and he took great delight in gathering a group of boys and girls around him for his story-telling.
Among his admirers was a little girl called Alice Liddell and it was for Alice that he wrote Alice in Wonderland, the book which made him famous. Charles Dogson published his book under the pen name, Lewis Carroll, a name which was to become very well known.
