Biographical History

English novelist.

From the description of A few people : corrected and revised manuscript, 1938-1939. (Unknown). WorldCat record id: 122552981

English author E.F. Benson was part of a distinguished Victorian family; his father became Archbishop of Canterbury, and two brothers were also writers. He worked as an archaeologist in Greece and Egypt before devoting his time to writing. A prolific and diverse writer, he published novels, short stories, plays, and non-fiction, notably biographies. His most popular and characteristic works are probably the Lucia novels, quintessentially English human comedies centered on the memorable and domineering character Emmeline Lucas.
