This paper explains that Lewis Carroll and Edgar Allan Poe have both developed strong relationships with children; but Carroll?s focus on children was a healthy one, whereas Poe?s was not. The author points out that Poe can be viewed as a troubled man whose childhood caused him to develop significant problems in his view of women and relationships, which can be seen in his poetry and short stories. The paper stresses that Carroll?s relationships with children are healthy ones where he relates well to children and feels a genuine fatherly care for children as seen in "Alice?s Adventures in Wonderland".
