Hilaire Belloc

a.k.a. Joseph Pierre Hilaire Belloc

Author Code: FHBX

Born: Jul. 27, 1870 - La Celle-Saint-Cloud, France

Died: Jul. 16, 1953 - Guildford, Surrey, England

Belloc was educated at the Oratory School in Birmingham and Balliol College, Oxford. The French-born Belloc became a British citizen in 1902. He was elected to Parliament in 1906 on the Liberal ticket as member for Salford and served until 1910. In 1895, he published Verses and Sonnets and followed in 1896 with The Bad Child's Book of Beasts, which launched him on a literary career that would eventually lead him to be recognized as one of the most versatile writers of the early 20th century. Belloc was at ease with light verse as well as lucid essays, historical interpretation and humourous satire. Among his best known works are The Modern Traveller (1898), Danton (1899), Robespierre (1901), The Path to Rome (1902). Mr. Burden (1904), Cautionary Tales (1907), The Four Men (1912), Europe and the Faith (1920), The Cruise of the "Nona" (1925) and Heroic Poem in Praise of Wine (1932). Belloc was a prolific writer whose work also included hundreds of essays, poems and criticism. He was a great friend and collaborator of G.K. Chesterton. Belloc suffered a stroke in 1942 and never completely recovered, thus ending his literary career.
