Boxed Complete Set of Three paperbacks that make up the CLAYHANGER TRILOGY by Arnold Bennett and published by Penguin Books Ltd., UK, in 1975. The books are CLAYHANGER, HILDA LESSWAYS and THESE TWAIN.

All of the books are in very good condition, with only the odd crease to one or two of the spines. The illustrated original box itself is in very good condition with minor shelf wear (only slight rubbing to the corners and very slight crease to the edge of the opening). Internally, all of the books' pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no inscriptions. There is only minor tanning to the page ends around the spine.

Arnold Bennett's trilogy was the basis of ATV's CLAYHANGER Series co-starring Janet Suzman and Peter McEnery with Denis Quilley.

CLAYHANGER: The first volume in the trilogy. It was first published in 1910. "Set like THE OLD WIVES' TALE in the Five Towns, Clayhanger is a careful evocation of a boy growing to manhood during the last quarter of the nineteenth century and includes an unforgettable portrait of an autocratic father.

He (Clayhanger) is one of the most attractive heroes in twentieth-century fiction. Bennett, who believed inordinately in the interestingness of ordinary things and ordinary people, was never more successful in revealing the interestingness of an apparently ordinary man than in Edwin clayhanger - Walter Allen in The English Novel.

528 pages. ISBN: 0 14 00 0997 3

HILDA LESSWAYS: It was first published in 1911."In Hilda Lessways, the second volume of the trilogy, Bennett relates the early life of Hilda Lessways, before her marriage to Edwin Clayhanger. Her involvement with the enigmatic, self made man, George Cannon, and his enterprises takes her from the offices of an embryo newspaper in the Five Towns to a venture into the guest house business in Brighton.

As in CLAYHANGER Bennett, in Walter Allen's words, `follows the grain of life'. Hilda, in her guilt at having failed her mother, in her relationship with Cannon, in her growing fascination for young Clayhanger, in the reality of her hopes and tragedies, is one of Bennett's most living heroines"

327 pages. ISBN: 0 14 00 3887 6

THESE TWAIN: It was first published in 1916."These Twain is the final volume in the Clayhanger trilogy. In many ways this is the most accomplished of the three novels, for Bennett, drawing together the threads of his trilogy, presents already-established personalities in confrontation.

Hilda is now married to Edwin Clayhanger and the two, with Hilda's son by her disastrous marriage to George Cannon, are living in Bursley. As they cope with immediate tensions and with old wounds they are forced continually to reassess their relationship.

Bennett is at his best here, recreating a society and its characters - Auntie Hamps and Tertius Ingpen among them - and achieving a remarkable subtle and biting portrait of a marriage."

430 pages. ISBN: 0 14 00 3886 8
