Who is Roald Dahl?

The author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda or The BFG, Roald Dahl was a celebrated british novelist and beloved children’s books author.

When he was young, he attended Repton School in Derbyshire, where he dreamed of inventing a new chocolate bar to win the praise of a certain Mr. Cadbury, the owner of the Cadbury chocolate factory. There was then no sign of a great literature career, as one of his english teachers wrote “I have never met anybody who so persistently writes words meaning the exact opposite of what is intended.” But it didn’t stop Dahl obviously, who had a passion for litterature, an interest in photography and was a sportman (he played cricket, football, golf and squash).

Before becoming a celebrated author, Dahl served in the Royal Air Force during the Second World War, became a fighter pilot, an intelligence officer, an acting wing commander. He rose to prominence as a writer in the 1940s, and he invented a lot of words in his books. He is also one of the man behind the Wade-Dahl-Till valve, prompted by the need to alleviate the head injuries endured by his son after an accident in New York.

Considered one of “The 50 Greatest British Writers Since 1945” and referred as “one of the greatest storytellers for children of the 20th century”, it’s the moment to remember that Roald Dahl was a writer of his time in a way. His works are known for their unexpected endings, their macabre, championing the kindhearted, and also have been criticised for antisemitism, racism and misogyny.
