Warner, Rex, 1905-1986Variant names
Rex Warner was born in Birmingham and was raised in the bucolic splendour of the Cotswold Hills, his father a clergyman, his mother a teacher. Winning a scholarship to Oxford, Warner developed an odd mix of intellectual intensity and rugged rusticism, which would inform his writing throughout his life. Popular with critics but seldom with the public, a central theme of his writing is man as a political entity, exemplified by his celebrated novels of Classical Rome and Greece.
