IAA Town Lectures and Concerts 2024

Lecture – July 11th

Ronnie Blythe (1922 – 2023)
Janet Dann

At the end of his long life, Ronald Blythe described himself as ‘watchful, curious and
gratefully amazed’. The eldest of six children in a family of agricultural labourers, he left
school at 14 and began his ‘real education’. Advice to aspiring writers frequently comes
as ‘write what you know’. He certainly did so with ‘Akenfield’, the 1969 chronicle of Suffolk
rural life, but to define him by this one work is to do him a great disservice.
