    Mathematician Keith Devlin asserted in the journal of The Mathematical Association of America that Dodgson wrote Alice in Wonderland in its final form as a scathing satire on new modern mathematics that were emerging in the mid-1800s.

    Devlin, Keith (March 2010).

    "The Hidden Math Behind Alice in Wonderland".
