Walpole, as the biographer of the life of John Cornelius, wrote a long, first person narrative of the life of a genius who could never bring his world of dreams in tune with the world of reality for himself or for those who read his books, a writer who strove desperately to produce serious novels, and who died famous and acknowledged for three slim volumes of fairy tales. Walpole wrote romantically of a character whose life was never very real, and who could not find happiness, except at odd moments because of this gulf between him and the world.

Author Image

Sir Hugh Seymour Walpole (March 13, 1884 - June 1, 1941) was a British Novelist during the first half of the Twentieth Century. He was one of the most popular authors of his times, until his literary reputation was destroyed by Somerset Maugham.

His most famous novel is perhaps Rogue Herries, the first of four books in his Herries Chronicles series. He wrote thirty-six novels, and five volumes of short stories.
