MELVILLE, LEWIS
MELVILLE, LEWIS (pen name of Lewis Saul Benjamin; 1874–1932), biographer. A prolific writer, he was best known for his books about the English novelist Thackeray, whose works he also edited (1901–07). Farmer George (1907) was an important account of the private life and character of George III. Lewis' other works include scholarly, yet good-humored, studies of figures such as John Gay (1921), Nell Gwyn (1923), and Beau Brummell (1924); and several anthologies.
