Om författaren

Arnold Bennett was born on May 27, 1867 in Hanley, Staffordshire, England. He began his working career as a law clerk and later he left the legal field and became an editor for the magazine Woman. His first novel was "A Man from the North." He wrote several novels set in Hanley, the town where he visa mer was born. These are known as the Five Town novels. Other titles include "The Babylon Hotel," "The Truth about an Author," and "How to Live on 24 Hours a Day." Bennett won the 1923 James Tait Black Memorial Prize for his novel "Riceyman Steps." "The Journal of Arnold Bennett" was published posthumously in three volumes. Bennett was also the author of "Hugo" which was made into a major motion picture in 2011 starring Jude law and Ben Kingsley, directed by Martin Scorsese. During WWI, Bennett was Director of Propaganda for France at the Ministry of Information. (At that time "propaganda" did not have the negative connotations it would have later in the twentieth century.) This appointment was based on the recommendation of Lord Beaverbrook, who also recommended him as Deputy Minister of that department at the end of the war. Bennett refused a knighthood in 1918. He died in London of typhoid fever on March 27, 1931. (Bowker Author Biography) visa färre

Recensioner

Beautifully written, although sometimes the author holds somewhat arrogant notions regarding literature and the people who enjoy reading it. This is a good read if you want to feel a cultivated, erudite person. Also very suitable for people who want to impress their high school teachers. Made me laugh out loud a few times as well; read the first part of the chapter on poetry if you want to know what I mean.

A very short book, a quick read. Very inspiring. A simple premise, but a challenge to put into practice. I picked this up after noticing Emily in Emily of Deep Valley was reading it. I appreciated the projects she took on and thought this might be encouraging. A thoughtful book. As true today as it was in 1908!
