Lewis Carroll at Texas: University of Texas at Austin, Carroll Studies Number 8. A nicely illustrated catalogue of this legendary collection. Many theories have been put forward to explain the missing material. A popular explanation for one missing page 27 June is that it might have been torn out to conceal a proposal of marriage on that day by Dodgson to the year-old Alice Liddell. However, there has never been any evidence to suggest that this was so, and a paper offers some evidence to the contrary which was discovered by Karoline Leach in the Dodgson family archive in This paper is known as the "cut pages in diary document", and was compiled by various members of Carroll's family after his death.
Part of it may have been written at the time when the pages were destroyed, though this is unclear. The document offers a brief summary of two diary pages that are missing, including the one for 27 June The summary for this page states that Mrs. Liddell told Dodgson that there was gossip circulating about him and the Liddell family's governess , as well as about his relationship with "Ina", presumably Alice's older sister Lorina Liddell.
The "break" with the Liddell family that occurred soon after was presumably in response to this gossip. Lorina was also the name of Alice Liddell's mother. What is deemed most crucial and surprising is that the document seems to imply that Dodgson's break with the family was not connected with Alice at all; until a primary source is discovered, the events of 27 June will remain in doubt. In his diary for , Dodgson recorded experiencing his first episode of migraine with aura, describing very accurately the process of "moving fortifications" that are a manifestation of the aura stage of the syndrome.
Another form of migraine aura called Alice in Wonderland syndrome has been named after Dodgson's little heroine because its manifestation can resemble the sudden size-changes in the book. It is also known as micropsia and macropsia , a brain condition affecting the way that objects are perceived by the mind. For example, an afflicted person may look at a larger object such as a basketball and perceive it as if it were the size of a golf ball. Some authors have suggested that Dodgson may have suffered from this type of aura and used it as an inspiration in his work, but there is no evidence that he did.
Dodgson also suffered two attacks in which he lost consciousness. He was diagnosed by a Dr. Stedman, and they believed the attack and a consequent attack to be an "epileptiform" seizure initially thought to be fainting, but Brooks changed his mind. Some have concluded from this that he was a lifetime sufferer of this condition, but there is no evidence of this in his diaries beyond the diagnosis of the two attacks already mentioned.
Carroll had at least one incident in which he suffered full loss of consciousness and awoke with a bloody nose, which he recorded in his diary and noted that the episode left him not feeling himself for "quite sometime afterward". This attack was diagnosed as possibly "epileptiform" and Carroll himself later wrote of his "seizures" in the same diary.
Most of the standard diagnostic tests of today were not available in the nineteenth century. Her conclusion, quoted in Jenny Woolf's The Mystery of Lewis Carroll , is that Dodgson very likely had migraine, and may have had epilepsy, but she emphasises that she would have considerable doubt about making a diagnosis of epilepsy without further information. There are societies in many parts of the world  dedicated to the enjoyment and promotion of his works and the investigation of his life.
In , his great-nephew unveiled a memorial stone to him in Poets' Corner , Westminster Abbey. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. For other people named Charles Dodgson, see Charles Dodgson disambiguation.
