Lewis Carroll: Interviews and Recollections

Lewis Carroll: Interviews and Recollections is more than a biography of the author of the Alice books; it is a record of the man as people knew him. Here is a collection of reminiscences about Lewis Carroll (1832-98) as recalled by his teachers, friends, relatives, colleagues and pupils who provide anecdotes of the schoolboy, proficient in Latin and mathematics at the age of 12, the gifted undergraduate and don, the eldest male of a large family dealing with his brothers' and sisters' problems and of the author of some of the best known children's classics in the English language. Morton N.Cohen was editor of The Letters of Lewis Carroll .
