'Carroll, Lewis' was the pen-name of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832-1898). (The pseudonym reflects his love of word-games: Lewis and Lutwidge are both forms of the same name - Louis in French, Ludovicus in Latin, Ludwig in German; while Carroll echoes the Latin form of Charles, Carolus. The reversal of the order is his playing with the elements of his name.)
Dodgson was a Student (lecturer) in Mathematics at Christ Church, Oxford. His first published work was
Dodgson, C. L. (1860) A syllabus of plane algebraical geometry, systematically arranged, with formal definitions, postulates, and axioms, Oxford.

But his interest to most readers of AWE will be the fictions and 'entertainments' he wrote as Lewis Carroll:

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865)
Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There (1871), a sequel to Alice in Wonderland
The Hunting of the Snark (1876), a nonsensical long narrative poem
Sylvie and Bruno (1889), a fiction for younger readers
Sylvie and Bruno Concluded (1893)
