I just finished reading the article about Carroll as a photographer and looking at the photos, and now I feel a little bit disturbed. Both the article and the photos have also helped to sway my opinion back to thinking that Carroll was possibly a pedophile because of some of the language that he would use in the letters, such as asking to see the young child drawn without any clothes on. Personally, I feel like that screams “Weirdo!”, but then I also remember that during this time it was very common to take photographs of people naked, so maybe it is not really that strange. I would love to hear some other people’s opinions on the topic so I can have a little broader perspective on this!
What did you all think when Leach claimed that Lewis Carroll was involved in an affair with Mrs. Liddell and essentially Alice was used for a cover-up? (p.16).
