Vernon Lee was the pseudonym of Violet Paget, a British writer born in France. She's remembered today primarily for her supernatural fiction. She also wrote more than a dozen volumes of essays on art, literary theory, music, and travel. In middle age, she became a supporter of women’s suffrage, a pacifist, and an expert in international relations. As a member of the Union of Democratic Control, she wrote Peace with Honour: Controversial Notes on the Settlement (1915) about the group's proposals for an accord with Germany to end World War I.
