A.A. Milne and Winnie-the-Pooh

A Video Talk

Who doesn’t love Winnie-the-Pooh? A.A. Milne’s Winnie-the-Pooh stories are children’s classics, and have held their charm since the publication of the first book in 1926. The love doesn’t go away as children grow up, most adults appreciate his funny, bittersweet comments on life, love, friendship, growing up — and of course, hunny.

I’ll tell the rather tragic story of A.A. Milne and the hugely successful tale of the bear with little brain who enchanted the world.

When you are a Bear of Very Little Brain, and you Think of Things, you find sometimes that a Thing which seemed very Thingish inside you is quite different when it gets out into the open and has other people looking at it.”
– A.A. Milne

A.A. Milne, the writer

Alan Alexander Milne enjoyed several successful careers as a writer. He made his name as a comic writer for Punch, then went on to become a huge success as a London playwright. He even had five of his plays showing in London at the same time. He made another reputation as a writer of detective fiction, before he idled away a dull country house party by writing verses for children. Those popular verses led to the stories featuring his son’s bear, Winnie-the-Pooh, and from that time his publishers didn’t want him to write anything else. Milne did not wish to be remembered for his writing for children but could not escape that fate. Nor could his son, whose life was ruined because he was Christopher Robin.

Susannah – there is just so much I have to thank you for that it is impossible to find a starting point.
The talks I used to travel to Sydney for were a highlight and I was almost distraught when COVID joined our ranks. You saved the day. Now each month I have something to look forward to with your literary lectures.

Lesley
