Biografía del Autor
<p>Edward Frederic Benson, known as E.F. Benson, was a prolific English writer born on July 24, 1867, in Wellington College, Berkshire. He was one of the Benson family, with two brothers who were also writers. E.F. Benson is widely recognized for his Mapp and Lucia series, a collection of satirical novels that lampoon the upper-middle-class society of the 1920s and 1930s in England. He was adept at both novels and short stories, interweaving humor and wit into the narratives of English social life. His works often reflect the nuances and intricacies of his characters, with a subtle yet sharp critique of their interactions and social standings. \'Daisy\'s Aunt\' is one of his numerous works, highlighting Benson\'s characteristic blend of keen social observation with a comedic twist. It epitomizes his literary style, marked by a light-hearted tone that lays bare the pretensions and etiquette of Edwardian society. Benson\'s writing was not limited to adult fiction; he also delved into ghost stories, reminiscences, and biographies, showcasing his versatility as a writer. Despite the diversity in subject matter, his literary voice retained a distinctive clarity and vivacity. E.F. Benson passed away on February 29, 1940, but his work continues to be celebrated for its enduring charm and sardonic wit.</p>
