Excerpt from Conversations With an Ambitious Student in Ill Health: With Other Pieces

Tee Conversations which form the greater part of the succeeding pages were originally published in the London New Monthly Magazine, during the years 1830 and 1831, and while that periodical was yet edited by Mr. Campbell. They were received with great approbation in England, and many of them were copied in various publications on this side of the Ai lantic, where the interest they excited and the favour they obtained, were not less, or less general, than in the land of their origin. Until now, however, they have not in either country been given to the public in a collected form; and in the United States it is believed that it.would be dificult, if not almost impossible, to obtain a complete copy, - some of the Conversations having never been republished here, and those which were, having appeared singly, at intervals, and in dif ferent publications.

Edward Bulwer-Lytton, Lord of Lytton, was born on May 25, 1803 in London, England. He entered Trinity College, Cambridge in 1822, won the Chancellor's Gold Medal for English verse in 1825, and received a B.A. degree the following year. He was a novelist, poet, playwright, and politician. He coined the phrases the "pursuit of the almighty dollar", "the pen is mightier than the sword", and the opening line "It was a dark and stormy night". He wrote in a variety of genres, including historical fiction, mystery, romance, the occult, and science fiction. His works included Falkland, Pelham, Eugene Aram, The Last Days of Pompei, Ernest Maltravers, Zanoni, The Last of the Barons, The Caxtons, and A Strange Story. He also published several volumes of poetry including Ismael and The New Timon. His best known play was The Lady of Lyons. He served as the Secretary of State for the Colonies in from 1858 to 1859 and played a large part in the organization of the new colony of British Columbia. He became Baron Lytton of Knebworth in July 1866 and thereafter took his place in the House of Peers. He died on May 23, 1873, just short of his 70th birthday. The cause of death was not clear but it was thought that an infection he had in his ear had affected his brain.
