A World of Opportunity - research at Durham University
Lectures and seminars
Will Self and Enid Blyton are not often mentioned in the same sentence, but this lecture will reveal that they have an unexpected interest in common: scale. By a happy biographical accident, Dr Walsh is well qualified to expound upon the particular focus of this common interest, which is a rather eccentric model village called Bekonscot. But both writers are also, of course, interested in stories, and that is where his more academic interest as a narrative theorist comes in. Their negotiations with questions of scale in their stories provide a point of departure for his own concern with the distinctive qualities and limitations of narrative form.
