Bulwer-Lytton, Edward: Rienzi. V1. 12-Jun-2011
Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton PC (25 May 1803 – 18 January 1873), was an English politician, poet, playwright, and prolific novelist. He was immensely popular with the reading public and wrote a stream of bestselling novels which earned him a considerable fortune. He coined the phrases "the great unwashed" , "pursuit of the almighty dollar", "the pen is mightier than the sword", and the famous opening line "It was a dark and stormy night"
Bulwer-Lytton's literary career began in 1820 - with the publication of a book of poems - and spanned much of the nineteenth century. He wrote in a variety of genres, including historical fiction, mystery, romance, the occult, and science fiction. He financed his extravagant life with a varied and prolific literary output, sometimes publishing anonymously.
Cola di Rienzo (or di Rienzi) (c. 1313 – October 8, 1354) was an Italian medieval politician and popular leader, tribune of the Roman people in the mid-14th century. Wagner's Opera "Rienzi" was based on Bulwer-Lytton's novel.
