Often described as one of the greatest English novels of the twentieth century, John Cowper Powys' epic Wolf Solent centres around the story of a young man returning to his roots in the West Country after ten years in London.

Compelling, romantic and sensuous, it is peopled with memorable characters and filled with vivid, primitive descriptions of landscape. But beyond this powerful evocation of people and place, Wolf Solent is also a meditation on life and death, good and evil, body and soul, combining the earthy and everyday with the spiritual.

John Cowper Powys was born in Shirley, Derbyshire, in 1872, and educated at Sherborne and Corpus Christi College, Cambridge. He became a lecturer in English Literature in about 1895, and continued this work, mainly in the United States, until about 1934, when he returned to England and settled in North Wales, where he died in 1963. His first book, a volume of poems, appeared in 1896 and was followed by others - poems, essays, philosophical commentary - but his success came when he turned to fiction. His novels include Wood and Stone (1915), Rodmoor (1916), Ducdame (1925), Wolf Solent (1929) and A Glastonbury Romance (1932).
