Description/Abstract

John Cowper Powys has become an important subject of critical and scholarly attention. Many of his works have been reissued, and dissertations, essays, and books are devoted to him. Still, one suspects that outside the ranks of specialists in twentieth-century British literature, Powys remains little known. This is particularly unfortunate because he hoped that his work would speak, not to academic specialists, but to a broad general audience.

As Powys's reputation continues to grow, literary scholars will become increasingly aware of the collection of Powysiana in the George Arents Research Library for Special Collections at Syracuse University. It is one of the most important in the United States.
