HG WELLS

Literary Classics. Author Biography

Herbet George Wells (1866 – 1946)

literary classics author HG WELLS, island of doctor moreau, the time machine, war of the worlds, t.h. huxleyH. G. Wells was born in Kent. At the age of seven he broke his leg, and it was during his time in recovery, that he found his passion for books which filled his imagination with vivid ideas.

Following a private education, his family got into poor financial situation, and H.G. Wells was put into an apprentiship, but had a miserable time training as a draper. His experiences were to inspire future novels. Wells failed at becoming a draper, along with several other apprenticeships including a chemist assistant. He later went on to be an assistant teacher at a school in West Sussex until winning a scholarship at the Imperial College, London, studying biology under T. H. Huxley, which was to aid him with such novels as the Island of Doctor Moreau.

HG Wells married his cousin Isabel in 1891, but left her for a student in 1894, but during his second marriage he had a number of extra-marital affairs and had children from more than one of these; however his wife stayed with him.

In 1895 Wells esablished himself as a writer with his science fiction tale, The Time Machine which was followed three years later by War of the Worlds.
