It should be pointed out here that Blyton working life, her output consisted almost was very astute at making the most of her entirely of short stories, and that few. This huge section contains all the numerous series of short story books Books with mixed content (stories, poems and non-fiction) are only.
Will Sally, or Alicia, or Gwendoline? It is all splendidly uncertain at the start. I, for one, was hooked. Miss Grayling promises or, what is more honest, offers the hope of, happiness.
And the surest way to be happy, she suggests, is to take the happiness of other people just as seriously as your own. The characters must face up to their own faults and their failures of empathy, confront the consequences of their own actions when they cause grief to themselves and others.
What goes around at Malory Towers, more reliably than in real life, comes around. The girls at Malory Towers are archetypes. They are, in the sense that really matters, free. What stands in the way of goodness is, for them as for all people, the temptation to solipsism.
The wages of sin at Malory Towers is solitude. No one will talk to her until she has found her way back into a recognition of what it means to be one girl among others, all equally real.
An instinctive, untheoretical moralist, Blyton would never have put it quite this way.
I borrow the phrasing from Iris Murdoch, a novelist and philosopher who wrote for grown-ups. It was, again, as Bennett put it, as if a hand had come out and taken mine. Time and again, the girls must be brought to their lowest ebb ostracism, betrayal, near-fatal illness or, worse, near-expulsion before they are offered a glimpse of self-knowledge and the chance to get back on their moral feet. Sometimes an apology will do it, or an acknowledgement, or some gesture of recompense to those harmed.
But Blyton, like life, can be brutal: not every character is redeemed by the end of the series, and no character is straightforwardly rid of her vices. There is only the lifelong challenge of acknowledging the reality of other people. The most purely enjoyable of the books is In the Fifth at Malory Towers Darrell, now aged 16, must write the script for the school Christmas entertainment, a pantomime Cinderella.
She is nervous — Darrell has never written anything so ambitious before, but has a sudden flash of partial self-knowledge. I say, Sally — do you think, do you possibly think I might have a sort of gift that way? I never thought I had any gift at all. It is beautiful, and kindly, and generous, and surprisingly difficult to live out.
Like other writers in her genre, Blyton certainly valued sporting ability and physical fitness — the girls who find favour with her are the ones who like swimming, lacrosse and long walks along the Cornish coast. Indeed, her highest approval turns out to be reserved for the girl who wants to be a writer. The books threw me into a fictional world where being a girl was normal and fun.
One way for the ex-colonial to be post-colonial is to stop letting colonialism be the only measure of our attention Central London — all statues and imperial war museums — came as a rude shock to me when I first visited. But what does one do with this truth? Politics, like dust, is everywhere; but there are other things in the world, nicer things, and to attend to them we have to ignore the dust awhile.
This is a kind of political view too, just one that puts politics in its place. I reckon that one way for the ex-colonial to be post-colonial is to stop letting colonialism be the only measure of our attention.
The thing is not to gawp, in admiration or horror or awkwardness, at that history, but to find ways of putting it to use.
