Lewis Carroll (1832-1898)
Dodgson was a rector's son and third in a family of eleven. He showedartistic and literary talent from an early age, producing comic familymagazines with the help of his brothers and sisters. He was educated atRugby and Christchurch College, Oxford, where he afterwards became alecturer in mathematics and remained for most of his life, developing also akeen interest in amateur photography.He took great pleasure in the company of children, particularly young girls,and his most famous works stemmed from the stories he told to his youngfriends Lorina, Alice, and Edith Liddell. Alice's Adventures in Wonderlandbegan as a story told to the girls on a boat trip up the Isis in Oxford.
A Boat beneath a Sunny Sky
A BOAT beneath a sunny sky,Lingering onward dreamilyIn an evening of July ­­Children three that nestle near,Eager eye and willing ear,Pleased a simple tale to hear ­­Long has paled that sunny sky:Echoes fade and memories die:Autumn frosts have slain July.Still she haunts me, phantomwise,Alice moving under skiesNever seen by waking eyes.Children yet, the tale to hear,Eager eye and willing ear,Lovingly shall nestle near.In a Wonderland they lie,Dreaming as the days go by,Dreaming as the summers die:Ever drifting down the stream ­­Lingering in the golden dream ­­Life, what is it but a dream?THE ENDLewis Carroll
