Thomas Bailey Aldrich, an American poet, short-story writer, and editor, who had an influence on writers of his day both through his own writing and as editor of some of the most prestigious literary periodicals of the day, including THE ATLANTIC MONTHLY. His use of the surprise ending influenced the development of the short story, and his popular classic THE STORY OF A BAD BOY (1870) which is based on his childhood, was one of the first American novels to present a realistic portrayal of a young boy rather than a romanticized ideal. The book had a strong impact on other writers of the day, especially Mark Twain, who six years later wrote a similar story, TOM SAWYER. Aldrich's poems were published in such volumes as CLOTH OF GOLD (1874), and MERCEDES AND LATER LYRICS (1884). His best-known prose is MARJORIE DAW AND OTHER PEOPLE (1873).
