This carefully crafted ebook: 'The Life and Letters of Lewis Carroll' is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. This biography, subtitled The Original Scandalous Biography by Carroll's nephew, was written by Carroll's nephew and published only eleven months after his death in December 1898. It accidentally started the entire image of Lewis Carroll as a pedophile by deliberately suppressing all the evidence for his sometimes unconventional relationships with women, explaining that some of those women had been little girls... The Victorians had no concept of our modern idea of pedophilia. In fact, a man who loved pre-pubescent girls was considered especially saintly and innocent, and this was why Collingwood over-emphasized this aspect of his uncle's character so much. Stuart Dodgson Collingwood (1870-1937) was an English clergyman and headmaster. He wrote two books about his uncle, Lewis Carroll.
