Helen with the High Hand by Arnold Bennett


Arnold Bennett

Helen with the High Hand by Arnold Bennett.

With a foreward by John Shapcott, then Chairman of The Arnold Bennett Society, now Keele University.

The Arnold Bennett Society describe Helen with the High Hand as:

"Written as light entertainment, Arnold Bennett’s Helen With the High Hand was published in 1910  in the Staffordshire Sentinel.  Appearing between those two great masterpieces The Old Wives’ Tale (1908) and Clayhanger (1910), it is proof of Bennett’s astounding ability to write prolifically and across genres. 

Bennett’s portrait of Bursley (Burslem) is never less than affectionate and it encourages the reader to reflect on the strong sense of community that was once at the centre of a stable provincial life. "
