Biografía del Autor
<p>John Kendrick Bangs (1862-1922) was an American author, humorist, editor, and satirist. He was born in Yonkers, New York, and studied at Columbia University where he developed an early interest in writing. Bangs gained prominence during the late 19th and early 20th centuries and is best known for his work in the genre of \'Bangsian fantasy,\' a term coined posthumously in honor of his contributions. This genre features famous literary or historical figures interacting in the afterlife, often in whimsical or surreal settings, which is exemplified in his series of books begun with \'A House-Boat on the Styx\' (1895). His writing style is characterized by a gentle wit and a fondness for wordplay, targeting the foibles of society and human nature. One of his works, \'The Idiot at Home\' (1900), follows the eponymous central character from his earlier \'The Idiot\' (1895) and delves into domestic exploits with Bangs\' signature blend of humor and satire. Bangs served as an editor for various publications including \'Harper\'s Bazaar\' and \'Puck,\' and was a prolific writer, contributing to the development of the American humor canon until his death in 1922. His influence persisted, inspiring future generations of writers with his imaginative scenery and entertaining plots. Despite being less well-known today, Bangs\' unique blend of wit and fantasy endears him to a niche of devotees and maintains his place in American literary history.</p>
