Hope, a London-born novelist and cousin to Kenneth Grahame (The Wind in the Willows), wrote numerous novels ranging from romantic adventures to serious reflections of political and social themes. His most famous work, The Prisoner of Zenda, was lauded by luminaries such as Andrew Lang and Robert Lewis Stevenson, gave rise to a genre of adventure novels called "Ruritania" after Hope's fictional setting, and was honored by having the Canadian town of Zenda named for it.
