Sobre l'autor

Kenneth Grahame was born in Edinburgh on March 3, 1859. When he was five years old, his mother died of scarlet fever and he nearly died himself, of the same disease. His father became an alcoholic and sent the children to Berkshire to live with relatives. They were later reunited with their father, mostra'n més but after a failed year, the children never heard from him again. Sometime later, one of his brothers died at the age of fifteen. He attended St. Edward's School as a child and intended to go on to Oxford University, but his relatives wanted him to go into banking. He worked in his uncle's office, in Westminster, for two years then went to work at the Bank of England as a clerk in 1879. He spent nearly thirty years there and became the Secretary of the Bank at the age of thirty-nine. He retired from the bank right before The Wind in the Willows was published in 1908. He wrote essays on topics that included smoking, walking and idleness. Many of the essays were published as the book Pagan Papers (1893) and the five orphan characters featured in the papers were developed into the books The Golden Age (1895) and Dream Days (1898). The Wind in the Willows (1908) was based on bedtime stories and letters to his son and it is where the characters Rat, Badger, Mole and Toad were created. In 1930, Milne's stage version was brought to another audience in Toad of Toad Hall. Grahame died on July 6, 1932. (Bowker Author Biography) mostra'n menys

Biografia breu
Married to Elspeth Grahame, with one son, Alistair Graham.
British author and banker. Educated at St. Edward’s School, Oxford. He was orphaned at an early age and brought up by his grandmother. His family unable to afford the cost of university he took up a career with the Bank of England where he stayed until ill health caused his retirement, in his late forties, in 1907. During the banking days he wrote (and had published) essays and poems in his spare time. Among his books were Pagan Papers (1893), The Golden Age (1895), Dream Days (1898) and then… The Wind in the Willows (1908) which started life as a bedtime serial tale for his son Alastair.

A classic of children’s literature (published in 1908) that I never heard or read as a child and somehow never got around to reading until now. A great pity. I have no doubt whatsoever that I would have loved this as a child; one of my delights was the edition I read had absolutely wonderful illustrations. The storyline is simple: two friends, Mole and Rat—together with Badger and a small, assorted cast of others—devote their energies to saving Mr. Toad from his lack of judgment. There are a number of short adventures tucked in as well and a truly lovely, evocative paean to the English countryside runs throughout. The animals’ personalities are beautifully drawn and I cannot imagine any child (or adult, for that matter) who would not be enchanted by this gentle tale. Highly recommended.… (més)

Enchanting and moving. This ageless classic (1908) with its Shinto-like quality embodies a deep respect for the spirits of nature, culminating in the presence of Pan. Here the river is a friend and not a resource. Yes, it can be regarded as a book for children, and I've read some of the Marxist, homoerotic, feminist critiques, but I found it spoke to me about community, kindness, civility, and above all - home.
We others, who have long lost the more subtle of the physical senses, have not even proper terms to express an animal’s intercommunications with his surroundings, living or otherwise, and have only the word ‘smell’ for instance, to include the whole range of delicate thrills which murmur in the nose of the animal night and day, summoning, warning, inciting, repelling. p.67
Home is the grounding force beyond which even migratory creatures feel lost and out of place. Home is augmented by food, and like Enid Blyton, Kenneth Grahame treats us.
...he took care to include a yard of long French bread, a suasage out of which the garlic sang, some cheese which lay down and creid, and a long-necked straw-covered flask contaning bottled sunshine ched and garnered on far Southern slopes. p. 139.

Kjo vepër qëndron përkrah aventurës së shkëlqyeshme të po këtij autori – “Era mes Shelgjeve” – dhe personazhet janë po aq intrigues sa Zhabani, Miu, Baldosku dhe Urithi, duke e kthyer Keneth Grehëmin në një ndër klasikët e letërsisë për fëmijë.
