about

He is best known as a novelist, but he also worked in other fields such as journalism, propaganda and film.

 

In 1908 The Old Wives' Tale was published and was an immediate success throughout the English-speaking world.

 

His style was traditional rather than modern, which made him an obvious target for those challenging literary conventions. For much of the 20th Century, Bennett's work was tainted by this perception; it was not until the 1990s that a more positive view of his work became widely accepted. The noted English critic John Carey praises him, declaring Bennett to be his "hero" because his writings "represent a systematic dismemberment of the intellectuals' case against the masses".
