E F Benson

Edward Frederic Benson (1867-1940) was born in Berkshire, England, and educated at Cambridge. He worked in Athens for the British School of Archaeology and later in Egypt for the Society for the Promotion of Hellenic Studies. Benson wrote fiction, reminiscences, and biographies, but is best remembered for his arch satirical novels and his urbane autobiographical studies of Edwardian and Georgian society.
