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.
