Synopsis

After a prolific life as an author with a European reputation, outselling Dickens, Edward Bulwer Lytton was ennobled and, on his death, buried in Westminster Abbey. Since the First World War, however, his literary reputation has sunk and he is now little read. Bulwer Lytton is the first modern biography of an extraordinary man whose literary output was prodigious. It ranged from novels, such as The Last Days of Pompeii, to poetry, plays, biographies and extensive political commentaries and journalism. A dandy to rival Disraeli, Bulwer Lytton lived life in London. at Knebworth, his country house, or more frequently abroad, with hectic intensity. Arousing strong emotions in public, his private life was turbulent in the extreme; his acrimonious and bitter divorce from his wife Rosina providing one of the most public and prolonged of Victorian marriage disputes. Leslie Mitchell's biography, written to mark the two hundredth anniversary of Bulwer Lytton's birth, is an account of a singular and very remarkable Victorian.

Leslie Mitchell is Emeritus Fellow of University College, Oxford, and the author of The Whig World as well as biographies of Charles James Fox and Lord Melbourne.
