Laurence Hope *

a.k.a. Adela Florence (nee) Cory Nicholson

Author Code: ELHP

Born: Apr. 9, 1865 - Stoke Bishop, Gloucestershire, England

Died: Oct. 4, 1904 - Madras, India

The daughter of an army colonel, Hope received her general education at a Richmond boarding school, before leaving in 1881 to join her father in India. Her father edited The Civil and Military Gazette in Lahore and Hope developed an interest in writing. In 1889, she married Colonel Malcolm Hassels Nicholson and she inherited his love of India. She was influenced by Algernon Swinburne and the Pre-Raphaelites, which can be discerned in some of her writings. She adopted the masculine pseudonym of Laurence Hope and in 1901 published her first book, The Garden of Karma and Other Love Lyrics from India, which proved enormously popular, going into several reprints. While visiting North Africa, she met and befriended Thomas Hardy with whom she corresponded for a number of years. Hope's husband died in August of 1904, and she suffered from depression thereafter until, completely distraught, she committed suicide by drinking perchloride mercury later that year. Her son Malcolm edited her work and was responsible for getting it posthumously published. Her other works include Stars of the Desert (1903), Last Poems (1905), Indian Love (1905) and Selected Poems (1922).
