Trent Essays is an occasional series of commissioned volumes in which key practitioners write critically on aspects of creative writing and on other writers and their works. In A Writer’s Day-book Ronald Blythe, the eminent author of Akenfield, Divine Landscapes and many other notable titles, offers a lively selection from the ‘day-book’ of his reading and writing life, focusing on a 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, following 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.
