John Cowper Powys

Often described as one of the great apocalyptic novels of our time, WOLF SOLENT is the story of a young man returning from London to work near to the school at which his father had been history master. Complex, romantic and humorous, it is a classicwork combining a close understanding of man's everyday experience with a delicate awareness of the spiritual.

The Society attracts enthusiastic general readers and academics from Great Britain, North America, the Commonwealth and Europe. It welcomes everyone interested in learning more about this extraordinary family.

The Powys family and their friends constitute an unusually wide-ranging spectrum of social, literary and imaginative interests.

The founding of the Society in 1967 reflected a feeling among Powys admirers and friends that the special quality of the Powys writings, particularly those of John Cowper, Theodore, and Llewelyn, was not sufficiently recognized. It declared that its aim must be 'the establishment of the true literary status of the Powys family through promotion of the reading and discussion of their works'.

Publications and Conference

The Society publishes a substantial journal and three newsletters a year and has embarked on a publication programme. In addition it organises an annual conference, occasional meetings, exhibitions and walks in areas associated with the Powys family.

Among the many distinguished speakers who have addressed the Society are G. Wilson Knight, Angus Wilson and Glen Cavaliero. In addition we have heard from George Steiner, John Bayley, Iris Murdoch, Colin Wilson, Iain Sinclair, John Gray, A.N.Wilson, Chris Woodhead and Margaret Drabble.

A Powys Society Meeting

Mr Weston's Good Wine is the unusual tale of the struggle between the forces of good and evil in a small Dorset village. Its action is limited to one winter's evening when Time stands still and the bitter-sweet gift of awareness falls upon a dozen memorable characters. During the book a child knocked down by his car is miraculously brought back to life; the sign 'Mr Weston's Good Wine' lights up the sky; and the villagers soon discover that the wine he sells is no ordinary wine.
