Summary

British author Archibald Marshall became a writer later in life and rapidly gained acclaim in his own country and abroad. Regarded as a literary realist who worked in a vein similar to that mined by Anthony Trollope, Marshall excelled at creating sweeping family epics that explore many aspects of society and group dynamics, of which Abington Abbey is a stellar example.

Archibald Marshall (6 September 1866 – 29 September 1934), better known by his pen name Archibald Marshall, was an English author, publisher and journalist whose novels were particularly popular in the United States. He published over 50 books and was recognized as a realist in his writing style, and was considered by some as a successor to Anthony Trollope. Educated at Cambridge University, he was later (in 1921) made an honorary Doctor of Letters by Yale University. He travelled widely and made numerous notable acquaintances.
