Today's Poet: Enid Blyton

Enid Blyton (1897 - 1968)

Enid Blyton was best known for her children's stories but she also wrote poetry.  She began writing at the age of twelve when she wrote to entertain her brothers.

She would have been fifteen when the First World War began so I am going to include her in my list until I find out more.

Some of the poems featured in our exhibition were written by schoolchildren during WW1 and in my view they are very good indeed - hence the inclusion of younger poets.
