Enoch Arnold Bennett has been recognized as “an all-round man of letters, a personality and a power”. Arnold’s best novels The Old Wives’ Tale, Clayhanger, Hilda Lessways, These Twain etc., create an unprecedented impression of reality. The book proposes to examine the novels of Arnold Bennett as an elaborate presentation of the community life and the various human characters that live in it. This book attempts to prove how the novelist examines hereditary and environmental influences in the lives of different characters and then show socialization as the greater force in transforming the human personality. Arnold Bennett’s mature vision of life puts forth man’s continuous effort to struggle and to survive in a life of cut throat competition, a world of ever growing vices and in a social set-up which is forever growing more complex.
