Lewis Carroll is the pseudonym of Charles Ludwige Dogson. He was born in a clerical family, being the third child out of eleven. Together with his brothers and sisters he enjoyed, from an early age, literary pursuits, and they even produced family magazines in which Carroll proved his early love of parody, word games and puzzles.He was a first-rate mathematician and after graduation from Rugby and Christ Church, Oxford, he became a lecturer at this College.
But his fate was to remain in the world's memory, not as the great mathematician, but as the writer of some of the most loved children's books. Charles Ludwige Dogson became suddenly famous by publishing, in 1865, under the name of Lewis Carroll, one of the most delightful books in English, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, which was originally written to amuse one of his numerous little girl friends, the daughter of the Dean of the Christ Church.

The book is the story of a little girl who, down through a rabbit hole, reaches an underground Wonderland. From that moment, she meets all kinds of Cheshire Cat, the Duchess and the Mad Hatter, the Dormouse and the March Hare, the Mock Turtle and especially-and so different from the common fairytale heroes-the pack of Cards the King and the Queen of Hearts).

Alice has all kinds of strange adventures, one of them being the trial she has to go through, because of a stolen plate of tarts. The Knave of
Hearts is judged for theft by an animal and bird jury court of law and all that is going on there, is quite strange, even absurd:the jurors don't know their own names but are busily writing down on their slates, the King and the Queen presiding the trial give contradictory sentences.

One by one, there appear strange, fantastic characters, such as the Hatter or the March Hare, whose behaviour is bizarre they move or speak as in a dream, when we can't explain logically what is going on, or the heroes'behaviour.
