Biographie d’H.G. Wells

Herbert George Wells was born on September 21, 1866 in Kent, England. His father, Joseph, owned a china and glass shop. He was also a professional bowler and coach for the Kent County Cricket Club. Joseph had an accident in 1877, which ended his professional career. The accident caused financial hardship for the family, and it was this tragedy that helped the Wells’ marriage to fail. These difficulties forced young Herbert to leave school and make his own way in the world. He held many apprenticeships, but he believed in self-education. In his spare time he studied physiology, chemistry and mathematics. In 1884, Herbert successfully obtained a scholarship to the Normal School of Science where he trained as a science teacher. It was here that he became editor of the school’s journal where his first serious attempts at writing were published. In 1895, Wells opted for a full-time writing career and his first important short stories were published. His next work, The Time Machine received ‘rave’ reviews and thereafter, his popularity grew as a writer of science fiction. Some of his other works include The Island of Dr. Moreau, War of the Worlds, and The first Men in the Moon. H.G. Wells died in 1946. He left behind many works filled with wonder and fascination.
