Henry Maximilian Beerbohm, (1872
- 1956) the essayist, caricaturist, critic, and short story writer endures as
one of Edwardian England’s leading satirists.
Beerbohm won a large audience with the publication of The Works of Max Beerbohm (1896), his first volume of essays. Thereafter Beerbohm devoted himself to writing charming pieces about whatever topic struck his fancy.
Beerbohm was also famous for his comic sketches of literary figures, politicians, and celebrities. Impudently he lampooned everyone from Oscar Wilde and Henry James to Queen Victoria and the Prince of Wales.
In 1898 Beerbohm replaced George Bernard Shaw as drama critic for the Saturday Review. ‘The younger generation is knocking at the door,’ Shaw told readers. ‘And as I open it there steps sprightly in the incomparable Max.’ For the next twelve years Beerbohm wrote lively reviews of works by Ibsen, Strindberg, Shaw, and other playwrights. His three volumes of criticism, Around Theatres (1924), as well as the posthumous collections More Theatres: 1898-1903 (1969) and Last Theatres: 1904-1910 (1970), endure as important records of the London stage in the early twentieth century.
