ENID BLYTON


Enid Blyton was probably the most successful British children's writer of the twentieth century, she was born  in London on 11th August 1897 and she died in 1968

Enid Blyton's books have received much literary criticism, indeed the attitudes displayed in many of the books can be considered as sexist and outdated. At the end of the fifties many librarians refused to stock books by Enid Blyton on the grounds that children would not read the great works of literature, this had the result that Enid Blyton sold even more books. All I can say is that as a child I really enjoyed reading her books. I would say that due to Enid Blyton I went on to read many other authors.

THE BOOKS OF ENID BLYTON


Enid Blyton's first book was Child Whispers, published in 1922. In 1937 she wrote her first full length novel The Adventures of the Wishing chair. She went on to write a large number of books, probably exceeding six hundred though Enid blyton is probably best known for her series books, the Famous Five, the Secret Seven, the Adventure series, the Mystery series, the Barney Junior Mystery and her school books (St Clare Books, Mallory towers books). In addition Noddy was also extremely successful.

CRITICISM

Enid Blyton's books have received much literary criticism, indeed the attitudes displayed in many of the books can be considered as sexist and outdated. Indeed at the end of the fifties many librarians refused to stock books by Enid Blyton on the grounds that children would not read the great works of literature, this had the result that Enid Blyton sold even more books. After a period of attacks from the press, Enid Blyton allegedly stated that criticism from the over 12's did not really count.

COLLECTING ENID BLYTON BOOKS

For a number of years only a few Blyton fanatics collected her books and indeed the view of many dealers is that it was hard to sell Enid Blyton books to collectors . The situation is now completely reversed with most first editions having risen dramatically in price and the early (war time books) in the popular series becoming extremely difficult to find. This may be partly due to the fact that 1997 was the centenary of the Birth of Enid Blyton.
