Abstract

“The origin of Alice in Wonderland Syndrome: Charles Dodgson and his attraction to small children”

Stefan Bittmann

1864, Lewis Carroll wrote the novel of Alice in Wonderland “Alice`s Adventures under Ground”. Lewis Carroll was the pseudonym of the researcher Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. His fondness for small children led to the writing of “Alice`s Adventures in Wonderland”, which was published in 1865, a story beginning with rowing Lorina, Alice and Edith, the three small daughters of the College Dean H.G. Liddell, through the Thames for a picnic near the city of Binsey. Charles Dodgson had a fable for small children and painted them nakely. Dodgson spent special attention to small children with paintings and photographs. Charles Dodgson wrote diary about the experience with the three daughters, especially Alice, unfortunately diaries between 18.4.1858 till 8.5.1862 were missing. These parts of the diary were never found.
