Bulwer-Lytton, Edward

English writer and politician, 1803-1873, known for his florid writing, author among many other titles of The Last Days of Pompeii, 1834

Fishburn and Hughes: "An English novelist, author of The Last Days of Pompeii, whose work reflects the influence of Byron and the Gothic novel. Bulwer Lytton's grandiloquent style and exaggerated characters were mercilessly attacked by some of his contemporaries and his reputation has declined considerably in the course of the twentieth century." (36)
