First Powys Lecture in Ireland

 

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.

How to Join

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

The Society, a registered charity, was founded to promote and encourage the appreciation and enjoyment of the writings of John Cowper, Theodore and Llewelyn Powys and to establish their true literary status.

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

We aim to be a vibrant, relevant organization for non-academics and academics alike. To achieve this, we encourage you to join.

Membership of the Powys Society entitles you to three issues annually of the Powys Society Newsletter (published in March, July & November) the Society’s annual Journal, plus the opportunity to meet fellow Powysians and to attend several organised events including the annual conference.

The Powys Society

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.
