Lewis Carroll and Parody

Carroll cemented his role as an entertainer not only by writing an engaging and creative story but also by using parody to downplay didacticism in prior works. Isaac Watts, for example. Carroll also parodies practices and ideas of the time, not only people. Royalty, for example, is parodied, as well as mock turtle soup.
