The study and appreciation of the life, works and times of Arnold Bennett

Leonora – Edited by John Shapcott

“She was walking, with her customary air of haughty and rapt leisure, across the market-place of Burslem, when she observed in front of her, at the top of Oldcastle Street, two men conversing and gesticulating vehemently, each seated along in a a dog-cart.”

In Leonora Arnold Bennett depicts the emotional fortunes of his beautiful heroine as she is forced to come to terms with the selfish and deceitful behaviour of her husband.  Bennett does this against a vividly realised backdrop of the economic and social life of a Potteries town in the lat nineteenth century.
