A Writer's Day-Bookby Ronald Blythe
In A Writer's Daybook Ronald Blythe offers a lively selection from the day-book' of his reading and writing life, focusing on some of the wide range of writers who have inspired him, from Thomas Traherne to Virginia Woolf, Laurie Lee to Russell Hoban. This is Ronald Blythe's second title for 'Trent Essays', an occasional series of commissioned volumes in which eminent practitioners write critically on aspects of creative writing and on other writers and their works. It follows his well-received collection of edited talks 'on and around' John Clare, Talking About John Clare (1999). Clare remains a key figure in this second book, along with other Blythe touchstones such as the writers and artists of the First World War, and the representation of the rural world.
