As well as writing books of verse and novels, he also wrote on religious, social and political topics. He was an early 20th Century Anglo-French writer and historian who became a naturalised British subject in 1902. He was one of the most prolific writers in England during the early twentieth century. He is most notable for his Roman Catholic faith, which had an impact on most of his writing.
