As another sign of influence, the American author Jack London cited her novel Signa , which he read at age eight, as one of the eight reasons for his literary success. Of short stature "sinister, clever face" and with a "voice like a carving knife" William Allingham's diary , she moved into the Langham Hotel, London in , where she wrote in bed, by candlelight, with the curtains drawn and surrounded by purple flowers. Later, while living in France and Italy, Ouida continued to host locals and expatriates alike at her gatherings.
Ouida considered herself a serious artist. She was inspired by Byron in particular, and was interested in other artists of all kinds. Sympathetic descriptions of tragic painters and singers occurred in her later novels. Her work often combines romanticism with social criticism, however. In one novel, Puck , a talking dog narrates his views on society.
Views and Opinions includes essays on a variety of social topics written in her own voice. Although successful, she did not manage her money well and was poor when she died of pneumonia [ 4 ] on 25 January , in Viareggio, Italy. Soon after her death, a public subscription purchased and built a fountain for horses and dogs in Bury St Edmunds, [ 7 ] with an inscription composed by Lord Curzon:.
The composer Mascagni bought the rights for her story, "Two Little Wooden Shoes", intending to adapt it for an opera.
