abstract
The 19th-century author Charles Dodgson, better known as his persona Lewis Carroll, is famous worldwide for his nonsense novel Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Many are aware of the second Alice book, Through the Looking Glass, but his final novel Sylvie and Bruno has received far less attention. The purpose of my study is to examine the reasons for Dodgson's successes and failures insofar as his development of comedy in each novel is concerned. Literary and comedic theories, diaries and letters, biographies, and criticism of Dodgson's works guide my analysis of his texts.
