◆本書より◆


「Some of Lewis Carroll's rules were rather one-sided affairs. We come across many contradictory traits in his character: he had a horror of being photographed but never tired of pressing others to sit to him; he was fond of collecting *cartes* but to have his own portrait collected by others was distasteful to him; he was a lion-hunter who hated to be lionised himself; he was a great autograph collector but when he suspected others of writing to him only in order to get his signature he would use script or a typewriter and ask a friend to sign for him. Caricatures went only one way too, as the incident with Isa Bowman shows. When Lewis Carroll saw a caricature which she had attempted of him, he went red in the face, snatched it from her and tore it up. Another incongruity was that in spite of his dislike of receiving surprise visits he often dropped in on people unexpectedly himself.」

(ルイス・キャロルの人との関わり方は一方的で、矛盾したものだった。本人は写真恐怖症で自分が被写体となることを避けたが、他人の写真を撮りまくった。他人の写真をコレクションするのを好んだが自分の写真を他人に与えるのは嫌った。有名人が好きだったが自分が有名人になるのは厭だった。サインの収集家だったがサイン欲しさに手紙を書いてくる者に対しては署名にタイプライターを使ったり代書させたりした。似顔絵も、描くのは好きだが描かれるのは嫌いで、アイザ・ボウマンが描いた自分の似顔絵を奪い取って破り捨てた。突然訪問されるのを嫌ったが、自分は他人の家に予告なしに押しかけた。)
