An old house recently purchased and a full electrical wiring required. It is during this process that the electrician, whilst pulling up floor boards, finds a battered and dusty copy of The Arnold... More > Bennett Calendar published in 1911, five years after the house was built. It felt appropriate on discovering this work to share it again, over ninety five years after first publication. This collection of quotes from Arnold Bennett provides a fascinating insight into not only the mind of the author, but also the late 19th and early 20th century world he lived in. In today’s world his view of women for instance will be viewed as certainly sexist and patronising, ironic perhaps as he held the post of Editor of Woman magazine. His insecurity as a writer comes through, but so his view of other authors, and his battle as a northerner in London. Never-the-less it is a fascinating insight and I hope you enjoy it.< Less

Enoch Arnold Bennett (27 May 1867 – 27 March 1931) was an English writer. He is best known as a novelist, but he also worked in other fields such as journalism, propaganda and film. Bennett... More > was born in a modest house in Hanley in the Potteries district of Staffordshire. Hanley is one of a conurbation of six towns which were joined together at the beginning of the 20th century as Stoke-on-Trent. Enoch Bennett, his father, qualified as a solicitor in 1876, and the family moved to a larger house between Hanley and Burslem.[1] Bennett was educated locally in Newcastle-under-Lyme. Bennett was employed by his father—his duties included rent collecting. He was unhappy working for his father for little financial reward, and the theme of parental miserliness is important in his novels. In his spare time he was able to do a little journalism, but his breakthrough as a writer came after he had moved from the Potteries. At the age of 21, he left his father's practice and went to London as a solicitor's clerk.< Less
