Enid Blyton


(Enid Mary Blyton Pollock Darrell Waters)
UK flag (1897 - 1968)

aka Mary Pollock

Enid Blyton was British writer for childrens books born on 11th August 1897. Enids love for writing had surfaced from the beginning of her childhood. Although her mother never approved of her writing and thought it was a mere waste of time her father encouraged his daughter to take part in all such activities. Enid gained confidence and started sending her work to different magazine. Finally her efforts paid off and her poem named Have you? was published for the first time in Nashs magazine.


Enid was a very bright child who excelled in studies, was a talented pianist and had remarkable writing skills. She attended St. Christophers School in Beckenham where she was the head girl. Later she became a trained teacher and taught at Bickly Subiton and Chessington. During this time she never gave up writing. She hoped to become a published author one day. Her dreamed was fulfilled when her first book Child Whispers was published in 1922. It was a compilation of childrens poems. Two years later she got married to Hugh Alexander Pollock who was a book editor at the firm that had published two of her works.

In her mid thirties Enid went through some crisis in her life which included the death of her father. This troubled her emotionally and she began to show signs of instability. She started post marital affairs and in 1941 divorced her husband to marry Kenneth Fraser, a man she had met while she was still with her first husband. However she remained in her second marriage for the rest of her life.
