Biographical notes:

William H. Mallock was born into a wealthy, aristocratic family; after graduating from Oxford, he applied himself to writing, producing novels and non-fiction rife with social commentary. The key to Mallock's works were his conservative ethos and resistance to change, which incited him to oppose the profound social and political changes of the era and trumpet the need for orthodox beliefs. In addition to novels, he also wrote poetry, essays, and numerous articles in periodicals; his signature work, The New Republic, is an adept satire and commentary on social conditions. He continued to write and lecture in opposition to change, earning him the title of the "last Victorian voice of orthodoxy."
