A Glastonbury Romance (Paperback)

£20.00
Usually despatched within 2 weeks.

Synopsis

This is the first modern paperback edition of "the only novel produced by an English writer that can fairly be compared with the fictions of Tolstoy and Dostoyevski." - George Steiner, "The New Yorker". John Cowper Powys has been acclaimed by some of the greatest minds of this century, from Henry Miller ("my first living idol") to George Steiner ("supreme in English fiction after Hardy") to Robertson Davies ("a great writer"). "A Glastonbury Romance", first published in 1932, is his masterwork, an epic novel of terrific cumulative force and lyrical intensity. In it, he probes the mystical and spiritual ethos of the small English village of Glastonbury, and the effect upon its inhabitants of a mythical tradition from the remotest past of human history - the legend of the Grail. Powys's rich iconography interweaves the ancient with the modern, the historical with the legendary, and the imaginative within man with the natural world outside him to create a book of astonishing scope and beauty.
