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.Review:
A novelist of great, cumulative force and lyrical intensity. . . . Out of his rhapsodic style and keen attentiveness to nature, he builds a tower of prose to match the firmament. -- The Washington Post Book World
A stupendous and rather glorious book. . . as beautiful and strange as an electric storm. -- V.S. Pritchett
Keats equated his initial reading of Chapman's Homer with an explorer's first view of the Pacific or an astronomer's glimpse of a new planet. Opening John Cowper Powys's Wolf Solent, reissued by Vintage, is a revelation on that order. . . . The author writes prose that is always on the threshold of poetry-- sacramental, mesmerizing, of relentless power. . . . Wolf Solent is a protean, inexhaustible, exhilarating book. -- George Gurley, The Kansas City Star
The novel is a momentous piece of work . . . of transcendent interest and great beauty. -- The New York Times Book Review
The only book in the English language to rival Tolstoy. -- George Steiner
[Powys is] as domestic as Jane Austen, a genius like her at creating a cast of characters as part of a comedy and in a comic setting. . . . [He is] as billiant an explorer of our erotic being as D.H. Lawrence. -- The New York Review of Books
