"In the Shadow of the Dreamchild" uses new research to show that the long-standing image of the life of Charles Dodgson, better known to millions of fans around the world as Lewis Carroll, as exclusively child-centred and unworldly, his preoccupation with Alice Liddell, and his supposedly unnatural sexuality are all in fact nothing more than myths: that they belong to an invented persona, created around the name "Carroll," and have almost nothing to do with Dodgson's real but overshadowed life. Meticulously researched, the book traces the development of this false persona and demonstrates how generations of biographers have helped to create fictions about Dodgson's life, rather than bring the documentary facts before the public. It uses the data to recreate a startlingly new picture of Dodgson's personality, his experiences, and, crucially, his all-important relationship with the Liddell family." In the Shadow of the Dreamchild" challenges almost every scholastic and literary insight on Carroll that has developed over the past century.
