Biography: English novelist and playwright Arnold Bennett (1867-1931) is known for his sympathetic novels about the potters, shopkeepers, and factory workers of northern England, including the trilogy Clayhanger (1910). The son of a solicitor, Bennett moved from his father's business in Staffordshire to London, and later to Paris as he honed his writing talent. Early work in serial fiction and magazine editing led to the novels that would mark his work as a link between traditional English novels and the new European realism.
