An Edition of the Letters of Lewis Carroll (Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, 1832-1898)

Authorized edition of Lewis Carroll's correspondence. Three thousand letters collected, catalogued and transcribed; fellow to spend year in England working with collaborator annotating letters, working with public records and local archives. Lewis Carroll was one of most versatile figures of 19th century, man of genius and wide interests. His letters are, more often than not, works of art in themselves, and they provide insight into the heart and mind of an engaging human being whose inspiration left for posterity such varied products a Alice in Wonderland (and the other fantasies which have made his name a household word) and the treatises in logic only now beginning to be fully appreciated. His letters provide a new and refreshing awareness of life and literature in Victorian England. Fellow has been working since 1962 in collaboration with English author Roger Lancelyn Green on the authorized edition of Carroll's correspondence.
