Amazon.com description: Product Description:
Combining poignancy and sincerity with irony and subversiveness, a selection of essays—including one published for the first time here in more than 60 years

 

This new selection of Llewelyn Powys's essays attempts to illustrate both the evolution of the author's thought and writing and the incredible breadth and variety of his interests. At once personal and universal, the 28 pieces contained in this volume tackle themes such as happiness and nature while also celebrating rationalism as an alternative to dogma and religion. With locales ranging from colonial Africa to the author's native Dorset, Llewelyn Powys's essays should cement his reputation as one of his generation's finest stylists, alongside his brothers William Cowper Powys and T.F. Powys.
