Reblog: The Controversial Enid Blyton by Jayde-Ashe


Stef was the one to find this post, from The Paperbook Blog.

So, I had planned to write a post in which I explored the lives of controversial writers. The older I get the more I want to know the person behind the words…because let’s be honest, they’re so damn fascinating!…

There is so much controversy surrounding this beloved children’s author that there is no room to look at others, they will have to wait for another day. So, to Enid Blyton. One thing is for sure – no matter how controversial the woman may have been, indeed still continues to be, she is a literary genius.

So to read all about Blyton’s genius and the more controversial details of her life you can click on over to the original article.

    Fiona, I love reading (auto)biographies, especially about controversial authors like John Steinbeck, Arthur Miller or Patricia Highsmith. But I have to say that the most fascinating biography on an author that I ever read was the one by Margaret Forster on Daphne DuMaurier’s life. Especially from page 90 or 100 on (after her childhood) when the DuMaurier’s buy their second home in Fowey, Cornwall. A great read! Makes you want to go to Cornwall…

    Interesting original blog but it does but it omits Imogen’s more positive comments on her mother who’s work she does celebrate in a very positive way never mind Gillian’s opinion of her own childhood.
