Writer and translator; born in South Africa and known for his satirical works and autobiographies, including Broken Record (1934) and Light on a Dark Horse (1951), Campbell was heavily criticised by the Bloomsbury Group for the fascist opinions expressed in his writing. A controversial figure throughout his life, he converted to Catholicism in 1935 and supported Franco in Spain.
