Apparently this morning English Heritage have added this to their website.
“Blyton’s work has been criticised during her lifetime and after for its racism, xenophobia and lack of literary merit…”
There is little arguing that Enid Blyton’s is problematic. The problem for me the rebuttals.
You can’t hold people to the standards of today. Everyone was racist and homophobic back then. It was acceptable.
Everyone thought that slavery was acceptable at that time.
You mean white people thought slavery was acceptable. Those who were enslaved don’t get to have a voice, do they not count as every one…
In the case of Enid Blyton. Her work was attacked at the time publishing.
Well it just sounds like more white supremacy to me.
