Maurice Baring was born into an aristocratic family, educated at Cambridge and Oxford, and travelled abroad. A life-long interest in languages helped him succeed in various posts in Britain's diplomatic corps. He then elected to pursue a literary career, serving as military correspondent during the Russo-Japanese war. A writer of diverse forms and consistent quality, he is perhaps best remembered for his novels, which emphasize character study and social commentary. He also wrote poetry, journalism, criticism, parodies, plays, memoirs, short stories, and biographies, and served as translator or compiler for a number of works.
