Acquiring a taste for John Cowper Powys by Dr Morine Krissdottir.

I have spent the last five years of my life writing the biography of an author whom many critics loathe. John Cowper Powys is a form of literary Marmite.

If you are a Marmite lover like Iris Murdoch and John Bayley, you will want to read Powys with breakfast, supper and tea. If you like your novels and your authors uncomplicated, you are the bird in the recent commercial that hates the taste and flies off - as fast as your little wings can carry you. You either think Powys is a genius or a sadomasochistic charlatan - the chief of the crazy Powys clan. The poet Philip Larkin called Powys “that gigantic mythopoeic literary volcano”; his friend Louis Wilkinson, complained that he could write “ridiculous tedious rubbish”. One critic called A Glastonbury Romance, “an epic novel of terrific cumulative force and lyrical intensity,” and another critic described the metaphysically overloaded first paragraph of the novel as “The Beecher’s Brook of English Fiction”.
