Do Lewis Carroll's poems prove that He's Jack the Ripper?
Even after almost 130 years, the Identity of Jack The Ripper is is still one of the great unsolved mysteries of forensic science. One of the most illustrious suspects, accused posthumously by Richard Wallace in his book "Jack the Ripper, Light-Hearted Friend", is the writer Charles L. Dodgson alias Lewis Carroll.
It seems impossible that the author of "Alice in Wonderland" and "Through the looking glass", could commit such horrible crimes but, according to Wallace's theory, Carroll's literary works was merely a hallucinated sublimation of his morbid fascination with the female body.
Wallace creates an intricate play-pattern analisys of "Nursey Alice"(an adaptation of "Alice's advertures in Wonderland" for younger readers) and develops from excerpt of this book a series of anagrams wich seem to hold detailed descriptions of the murders and hard evidences against him and his Oxford colleague, Thomas Vere Bayne.
