Robert Keable

Author Code: ERKB

Born: Mar. 6, 1887 - Bedfordshire, England

Died: Dec. 24, 1927 - Tahiti

Educated at Magdalene College, Cambridge, Keable graduated in 1908 and went on to receive his master's degree in 1911. In the meantime, he had befriended Arthur and Hugh Benson and under the latter's influence began studying theology. In late 1911, he was ordained in the Church of England and from 1912 to 1914 served as a missionary in Africa. In 1912, he published Darkness or Light, a book about the mission's work in Africa. He returned to England in 1914 due to ill health, but when this precluded his entering the military in the First World War, he returned to missionary duties in Africa. He was married in South Africa in 1915. In 1917, he served as chaplain to a South African regiment based in France. In 1919, drawing on his war-time experiences, he wrote Simon Called Peter, which was published in 1921 and became an instant best-seller. Keable resigned his ministry and left the church to concentrate on writing. He separated from his wife in 1922 and began living with his mistress, Elizabeth Buck. They moved to Tahiti, but when she became pregnant they returned to England. When Buck died in 1924 after giving birth to a son, Keable returned to Tahiti where he died three years later of kidney disease. In addition to his novels, Keable also wrote travel books and theological works. His output included A City of the Dawn (1915), Standing By (1919), Peradventure (1922), Recompense (1924), Tahiti; Isle of Dreams (1925), Numerous Treasures (1925), Though This Be Madness (1928 Posthumous) and The Great Galilean (1929 Posthumous).
