Wolf Solent, Paperback
5 out of 5 (1 rating)


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 classic work combining a close understanding of man's everyday experience with a delicate awareness of the spiritual.

Review by

I bought the book because I liked the cover painting. I read it and then devoured most of this great man's work. Fortunately there is a lot of it, and - even more fortunately - most of it is fine and sensitive stuff. Powys was a pantheistic eco warrior before there were such things, and consequently his work is prescient and even more timely for a modern audience.
