Welcome to the Arnold Bennett Society Website
Born, Enoch Arnold Bennett, on 27 May 1867 in Hanley, Stoke-on-Trent, Arnold left the ‘Potteries’ for London when he was 21 to become a solicitor’s clerk. After the publication of his first novel, A Man From The North, he never returned to live permanently in the Potteries, but his memorable childhood and early life there became the inspiration for his ‘Five Towns’ novels. He wrote The Old Wives’ Tale, considered his masterpiece, in 1908 while living in Fontainebleau, France.
