Gibert Cannan

Author Code: EGCN

Born: Jun. 25, 1884 - Manchester, England

Died: Jun. 30, 1955 - Virginia Water, Surrey, England

Educated at Manchester Grammar School and King's College, Cannan began reading for the bar after graduating, but decided to become a writer instead. He had an affair with the wife of the author James Barrie and was named in the divorce as a co-respondent. Subsequently, in 1910, he married Mary Barrie, some say out of a sense of chivalry. They moved to Buckinghamshire and in the course of the next decade, Cannan produced a quantity of translations in addition to a number of novels and plays. During the First World War, he was a conscientious objector and during this time, met another woman and left his wife. The woman, Gwen Wilson, married their lodger when Cannan was lecturing in America and this brought about a severe depression from which Cannan never fully recovered. Finally, in 1924, he was declared insane and was committed to the Priory Asylum in Roehampton. He was later moved to Holloway Sanatorium where he died of cancer in 1955. His works include Peter Homunculus (1909), Devious Ways (1910), Little Brother (1912), Joy of the Theatre (1913), Love (1914), Windmills (1915), Mendel: A Story of Youth (1916), Freedom (1917), Stucco House (1917), Anatomy of Society (1919), Everybody's Husband (1920), Annette and Bennett (1922) and Sembal (1922).
