Here’s a name I bet you don’t know — Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. He was born on January 27, 1832, in Daresbury, Cheshire, England, and in 1982 he was honored with a memorial stone in Westminster Abbey’s Poets’ Corner. Of course, we know him by his pen name, Lewis Carroll, and as the author of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel, Through the Looking-Glass.
According to Wikipedia, Alice in Wonderland, first published in 1865, “has never been out of print.” That’s over 150 years, and it shows no signs of stopping. Walter Besant wrote that Alice in Wonderland “was a book of that extremely rare kind which will belong to all the generations to come until the language becomes obsolete.” It looks like he was correct.
