Literary Birthday - 16 May - HE Bates

Happy Birthday, H. E. Bates, born 16 May 1905, died 29 January 1974


Notice the English attitude to weather. After three week of unbroken sun we cry out for rain, and the relief in the air is immense when it comes. Give us three weeks of snow, a rare occurrence with us, and we are depressed for the sight of grass. Give us rain, after a drought and in three days we are crying out for sun again.

Bates was an English writer and author. His best-known works include Love for LydiaThe Darling Buds of May, and My Uncle Silas.
