About the Author
Lewis Carroll was the pen name of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, an English writer, mathematician, Anglican deacon, and photographer. Best known for his classics Alice s Adventures in Wonderland, Through the Looking Glass, and Jabberwocky, Carroll was also an accomplished inventor who created an early version of what is today known as Scrabble. The publication of Alice s Adventures in Wonderland in 1865 brought Carroll a certain level of fame, although he continued to supplement his income through his work as a mathematics tutor at Christ Church, Oxford College. Carroll s whimsical characters and nonsensical verse resonated with Victorian-era readers, and his books continue to be enjoyed by numerous modern societies dedicated to his promoting his works.

The only nugget of interest is the much-anthologised Mad Gardener's Song which is classic absurdist Lewis Carroll nonsense, and even here the nine verses appear popped into the narrative, such as it is, at irregular intervals and for no obvious reason.
Download this tedious mélange by all means and give it a go [it costs £0:00 after all] but it's heavy going, I warn you.
Personally if I'm feeling low I have found that reading a bit of "Sylvie and Bruno" cheers me up. I suppose it opens my mind up to the great variety and interest there is in life, and suggests to me how to use my brain to explore and master (and get fun out of) the world - and perhaps other worlds too... There has never been another book like this - it's really unique. And it's well worth buying.
