A sensitive man with many interests, he was an amateur painter and inventor, and an avid theatergoer who moved in London舗s artistic circles. A talented art photographer, he made portraits of various luminaries of the day, including Tennyson and the Rossettis. Most frequently, however, he turned his lens upon his favorite subjects and companions: young girls. Carroll舗s love of purity and guilelessness and his early experience with his many siblings made him prefer the company of children to that of adults.

The quandary of a logically grounded knowledge constituted out of an illogical universe pervades both books. The questions that Alice asks are not answered by the animals in Wonderland nor by anyone after she wakens. It is likely that her questions don舗t have answers or that there are no right questions to ask. Alice舗s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass remain the most prophetic of the nineteenth century舗s anti-narratives, inverted quest romances, circular mathematical treatises on the illogical logic of forgetting one舗s desires.
