    The 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.

    Carefully selected extracts from biographies, memoirs, diaries, private letters and other ephemera reveal how these iconic writers were viewed by their contemporaries. The edition will be vital to those studying Nineteenth-Century Studies, Twentieth Century Studies, Literature and Children's Literature.
