Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton PC (25 May 1803 - 18 January 1873), was an English politician, poet, playwright, and novelist. He was immensely popular with the reading public and wrote a stream of bestselling dime-novels which earned him a considerable fortune. He coined several phrases that would become clich├ęs, especially 'the great unwashed', 'pursuit of the almighty dollar', 'the pen is mightier than the sword', as well as the famous opening line 'It was a dark and stormy night'.
