Book Description

Often described as one of the great apocalyptic novels of our time, "Wolf Solent" is the story of a young man returning from London to work near to the school at which his father had been history master.

Books By Author John Cowper Powys

Art of Happiness by John Cowper Powys Art of Happiness, Paperback (May 2011)

Explores the problem of how man lives with his fellow man, and also with woman. As opposed to the abstract arguments concerning Man in the universe, this title deals with the practical arguments such as arise between man and his neighbour, his wife, his lover - and also with man's arguments against himself, in the pursuit of happiness.

In Defence of Sensuality by John Cowper Powys In Defence of Sensuality, Paperback (January 2011)

How far has the individual the right to be what is called 'selfish'? How far has he the right to concentrate on his own solitary awareness of existence and make this alone his life-purpose? And is there such a thing at all as a Religion of Nature or a Cosmic Ethic? The author attempts to answer such questions.

Meaning of Culture by John Cowper Powys Meaning of Culture, Paperback (October 2010)

Divided in two parts, this book includes: Analysis of Culture which deals with, in separate chapters, Philosophy, Literature, Poetry, Painting and Religion, and Application of Culture which covers Happiness, Love, Nature, The Art of Reading, Human Relations, Destiny, and Obstacles to Culture.

Author Biography - John Cowper Powys

John Cooper Powys, a descendant of John Donne, was born in 1872. A prolific novelist, essayist, correspondent, poet and philosopher, he grew up deep in the English countryside that would so inform his later writing. He spent thirty years travelling the length and breadth of America before settling in Wales to write the novels for which he is principally remembered, most notably WOLF SOLENT (1929) and A GLASTONBURY ROMANCE (1932). He died in 1963.
