By Morton N. Cohen (eds.)

Lewis Carroll is among the world's best-loved writers. His immortal Wonderland and pleasant nonsense verses have enchanted generations of youngsters and adults alike. The wit and mind's eye, the knowledge, experience of absurdity and sheer enjoyable which fill his books shine simply as truly from the various letters he wrote. '...each is a miniature Wonderland...They display a really pleasant man...the mix of extreme goodness and unselfishness with a magic, nonsense wit is unique'. The Scotsman '...a impressive number of pleasant and enjoyable letters reflecting all that was once embraced in that impressive character...all his allure, artistic enjoyable, knowledge, generosity, kindliness and artistic mind'. Walter Tyson, Oxford Times
