Genre


Francis William Lauderdale Adams was born in Malta and educated mostly in England and later in France. He emigrated to Australia to improve his health in 1884, and soon became a committed republican, writing for the Bulletin as well as William Lane's Left-wing paper, The Boomerang. A collection of radical poetry, Songs of the Army of the Night, was published in 1888. But he also published across a range of popular genres; his first novel was a work of crime fiction, Madeline Brown's Murderer, published in Melbourne in 1887. Adams is also remembered for his social sketches and his journalism. Living in Margate, England, Adams became increasingly ill with tuberculosis and throat cancer. He shot himself with a pistol, with his wife close by.
