About the Author

John Cowper Powys (1872-1963) was a prolific British novelist and critic.  He is best known today for the novels Wolf Solent (1929), A Glastonbury Romance (1932), and Owen Glendower (1940), as well as his Autobiography (1934).  An idiosyncratic writer, Powys drew on strains of Romanticism and the dour determinism of Hardy, adding a mysticism all his own.
