||Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland/
Through the Looking GlassThe Rev. Charles Dodgson, better known as Lewis Carroll, started writing his fantasy stories at the request of young Alice Liddell in 1862. Dodgson had forged a strong friendship with the Liddell children, but an incident in June 1863 causes Dodgson and the Liddells to go their separate ways. However, Dodgson completed his handwritten manuscript and presented it to Alice Liddell as a gift in 1864. The book was published the next year. It was popular enough to garner a sequel in 1871. The relationship between Dodgson and Liddell forms one of the core back stories in Namesake. The modern Alice is also Namesake to Wonderland.
