Barry Pain

a.k.a. Barry Eric Odell Pain

Author Code: EBOP

Born: Sep. 28, 1864 - Cambridge, England

Died: May 5, 1928 - Watford, Hertfordshire, England

Educated at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, Pain took an early interest in literary pursuits. He had contributed to Granta while at Cambridge and this helped him to achieve regular work from the Daily Chronicle. In 1891, he published his first book, In a Canadian Canoe, which was a compilation of his pieces from Granta. He began contributing to Cornhill Magazine and his short stories became very popular. In 1897, he became editor of To-Day, succeeding Jerome K. Jerome. In 1900, he published Eliza, one of his most popular and successful works. During World War I, Pain was a member of the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve in their anti-aircraft section. He was master of satire and this is reflected in many of his works which include Playthings and Parodies (1892), Stories and Interludes (1892), The Kindness of the Celestial (1894), The Octave of Claudius (1897), Another English Woman's Love Letters (1901), Three Fantasies (1904), Robinson Crusoe's Return (1907), The Shadow of the Unseen (1907), An Exchange of Souls (1911), The New Gulliver (1913) and Going Home (1921).
