By John Cowper Powys
Wooden and Stone was once John Cowper Powys' first novel released in 1915. it truly is no prentice-work besides the fact that - the writer was once already in his forties. the radical is decided within the sector of south Somerset that John Cowper Powys grew up in. The village of Nevilton is predicated on Montacute the place his father was once vicar for a few years. while he wrote it Powys was once dwelling within the united states and it truly is possibly this absence that debts for the heightened vividness of the descriptive writing. Powys deploys a wide and fantastically delineated forged of characters. they're loosely divided among 'the well-constituted' and 'the ill-constituted'. typically Powys favours the latter.
