Pickering & Chatto's highly successful Lives of Victorian Literary Figures series continues with the seventh installment. This facsimile edition focuses on three hugely popular late-Victorian novelists. Joseph Conrad (1875-1924), Henry Rider Haggard (1856-1925) and Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) engaged with different aspects of the rapidly-expanding British Empire. Polish-born Conrad joined the merchant navy and his most famous work, Heart of Darkness (1902) draws on his own experiences in the Congo. Anglo-Indian Kipling's poetry, short stories and children's writing engage with the colonial project in India. Haggard's gripping stories were inspired by African exploration and land-grab by European colonial powers at the end of the nineteenth century. Carefully selected extracts from biographies, memoirs, diaries, private letters and other ephemera reveal how these iconic writers were viewed by their contemporaries. The edition benefits from a general introduction, volume introductions, headnotes, endnotes and a consolidated index. It will be vital to those studying Nineteenth-Century Studies, Twentieth Century Studies, Literature and Children's Literature.
