HOW TO WRITE A NOVEL [KNOX, Charles Henry, Captain].
Hardness: or the Uncle. In Three Volumes...
First editions, scarce. The author, son of William Knox, Bishop of Killaloe and Kilfenora (later of Derry) and chaplain to the Irish House of Commons, joined the army in 1826, was made a captain in 1836, and retired on half-pay in 1838. After leaving the regular army he served as a Lieutenant-Colonel in the Royal Glamorgan Militia and embarked on a literary career, writing history, novels, and The Spirit of the Polka. In Hardness the vivid scenes of barrack and mess-room life, drawing on the author’s military career, are full of rough humour that we know we should deplore, but it is impossible not to laugh.
