John Cowper Powys (/ˈkuːpər ˈpoʊɪs/; 8 October 1872 – 17 June 1963) was a British philosopher, lecturer, novelist, literary critic, and poet. Powys was born in Shirley, Derbyshire, where his father was vicar of St. Michael and All Angels Parish Church, between 1871 and 1879. Although Powys published a collection of poems in 1896 and his first novel in 1915, he did not gain success as a writer until he published the novel Wolf Solent in 1929.

On returning to the UK, after a short spell in Dorset, he settled in Wales in 1935 where he lived for the rest of his long life.

With devoted admiration. The mention of his admirable name at the beginning of this book is no more than a humble salutation addressed to the monarch of that particular country, by a wayward nomad, lighting a bivouac-fire, for a brief moment, in the heart of a land that is not his. Wood and stone.

John Cowper Powys (1872-1963) has been called the forgotten man of English literature, seemingly a remarkable assessment for such a prolific writer. He lived for many years in the U.S., and his inspirational delivery made him a fixture on the lecture circuit. Novels such as Weymouth Sands, Wolf Solent, A Glastonbury Romance, Porius, and Maiden Castle, along with the impressive Autobiography, stand as landmarks of twentieth-century writing, yet debate over his genius, or lack of it, has raged since before his death.He brought to his fiction a fully formed personal philosophy and psychology. A Yeatsian Romantic, he employed mythology and place to explore the characters in his novels. His Wessex novels bear comparison with Hardy's. The reconciliation of contraries, the power of the imagination, and the evocation of elemental forces mark his fiction. Herbert Williams, director of a television documentary about Powys, assesses this complex and intriguing figure in this informative survey.
