A political biography of an author, as I think of it, overlaps considerably with both literary biography and personal biography, but it differs from both. Its defining characteristic seems to me its concern for the ways in which a particular author with a distinct personality uses writing as a way of understanding and influencing the political history of his time. A political biography will not be blind to its subject’s love-life, marriage, children, friendships and places of residence, but, however much they serve to define the subject as a person, they will not be matters of major concern.

Sir Richard Steele, English essayist, dramatist, journalist, and politician, best known as principal author (with Joseph Addison) of the periodicals The Tatler and The Spectator. Steele’s father, an ailing and somewhat ineffectual attorney, died when the son was about five, and the boy was taken. The Tatler had contained a good deal of political innuendo, some of it aimed at Robert Harley, the Tory leader, himself, and Harley may well have put pressure on Steele to discontinue the paper.
