Four Plays by Enid Bagnold
Four Plays
by Enid Bagnold

Enid Bagnold
b. 10-27-1889; Rochester, Kent, England
d. 3-31-1981; Rottingdean, England

Enid Bagnold is most remembered as the author of National Velvet (1935) that was made into the 1944 movie starring Elizabeth Taylor.

Bagnold's first published work was Diary Without Dates about working as a nurse in a World War I hospital. Her criticism of the hospital administration brought about her dismissal and which she was a driver in France. Her play The Chalk Garden (1955) continues to be performed and has been filmed several times.

Enid Bagnold quotes ~
• “If a dog doesn't put you first where are you both? In what relation? A dog needs God. It lives by your glances, your wishes. It even shares your humor. This happens about the fifth year. If it doesn't happen you are only keeping an animal.”
• “In marriage there are no manners to keep up, and beneath the wildest accusations no real criticism. Each is familiar with that ancient child in the other who may erupt again. We are not ridiculous to ourselves. We are ageless. That is the luxury of the wedding ring.”
• “A father is always making his baby into a little woman. And when she is a woman he turns her back again.”
• “The theatre is a gross art, built in sweeps and over-emphasis. Compromise is its second name.”

Joanna Baillie
b. 9-11-1762; Bothwell, Lanarkshire, Scotland
d. 2-23-1851; Hampstead, England

Joanna Baillie was a leading women dramatist of the Romantic era and was well known during her time. Her poetry ranged from songs and lyrical ballads to dramatic monologues and realistic blank verse poems relating to her youth in the Scottish countryside and her life in London.

Joanna Baillie quotes ~
• “I have seen the day, when, if a man made himself ridiculous, the world would laugh at him. But now, everything that is mean, disgusting, and absurd, pleases them but so much the better!”
• “O! who shall lightly say that fame/ is nothing but an empty name?”
• “The brave man is not he who feels no fear, For that were stupid and irrational; But he, whose noble soul its fear subdues, And bravely dares the danger nature shrinks from.”
