John Cowper Powys

a.k.a. John Cooper Powys

Author Code: EJCP

Born: Oct. 8, 1872 - Shirley, Derbyshire, England

Died: Jun. 17, 1963 - Blaenau Ffestiniog, Wales

Educated at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge, Powys graduated in 1894. He worked as a teacher until becoming an Extension lecturer working for both Oxford and Cambridge universities. In 1896, he published his first book, Odes, a collection of poems. His brothers Llewelyn, Theodore and Arthur would also become writers. In 1905, he moved to America and worked as a lecturer for the American Society for the Extension of University Teaching. He published his first novel, Wood and Stone, in 1915, but it wasn't until the publication of Wolf Solent in 1929 that Powys achieved any financial success. He continued to work and live in America until 1934, when he returned to England, at first living in Dorchester, but subsequently moving to Wales. In 1932 he published his best-known novel, A Glastonbury Romance, which was very popular. His Autobiography (1934) has been considered by many critics to be one of the best ever written. Powys was a prolific letter writer and many of these have been collected in print. He was also a good friend of Theodore Dreiser and Henry Miller. His other works include Wolf's Bane (1916), Suspended Judgments (1916), The Complex Vision (1920), Psychoanalysis and Morality (1923), The Meaning of Culture (1929), Weymouth Sands (1934), Maiden Castle (1936), Owen Glendover (1940), Mortal Strife (1942), Lucifer: A Poem (1956), The Brazen Head (1956) and All or Nothing (1960).
