The spires and colleges of Oxford have long captivated authors and poets, and in recent years have served as a setting for a variety of best-selling books and films, from Harry Potter to Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials trilogy. But perhaps Oxford’s most famous appearance as a literary backdrop dates back 150 years, when the mathematician Charles Dodgson, writing under the pen name Lewis Carroll, recorded the fantastic adventures of Alice in Wonderland.

In a recent New York Times feature, Charlie Lovett journeyed through Oxford in a search for evidence of Alice’s world.
