Re: [SOLO] Visions and Revisions by John Cowper Powys-ag

I loved this line:

"A generation that allows itself to be even interested in such types as the "strong," efficient craftsmen of modern industry and finance is a generation that can well afford a few moral shocks at the hands of Dostoievsky's "degenerates.""

Re: [SOLO] Visions and Revisions by John Cowper Powys-ag

I think I'll do Poe next weekend. I'm really glad that my appreciation of this book has if anything grown through reading it, to me Powys manages to see important things in each writer but I also am impressed by Powys, he's extravagant but it doesn't obscure the writer he is talking about.

Re: [SOLO] Visions and Revisions by John Cowper Powys-ag

Wasn't it? Really interesting chapter. Powys loves Dostoievsky. Only two more writers to go and a short conclusion.

Re: [SOLO] Visions and Revisions by John Cowper Powys-ag

Thanks Grant, Powys early novels are very Hardy influenced and he actually got to meet him. So that one was probably pretty personal. The early novels are also out of copyright so if I wasn't put off by how long I'd taken to do this it could be worth doing one of those, they're also shorter than his...

Re: [SOLO] Visions and Revisions by John Cowper Powys-ag

I think the bing sound threw us off, I recorded the replacement section and then when it played back I noticed the duplication. so I cut out the new section. Yeah, there should be a warning on collections of Keats poems, I'm not sure I want to risk reading his odes at the moment, I'd quite like to r...

Re: [SOLO] Visions and Revisions by John Cowper Powys-ag

I think Goe...
