Edmund Clerihew Bentley was born in London and educated at Oxford. He studied law, but devoted himself to journalism, writing for the Daily News and Daily Telegraph in London. He is perhaps best remembered for his light verse, including the collection Biography for Beginners, which featured the verse form he devised for short, humorous biographical poems, the Clerihew. He also wrote literary criticism, and a series of acclaimed detective novels commencing with Trent's last case.
