|Title:||John Cowper Powys' In Defence of Sensuality and Wolf Solent|
|Authors:||Scime, Anthony John|
|Keywords:||English Literature;English Language and Literature;English Language and Literature|
|Abstract:||<p>This thesis is a close critical examination of the benefits derived from reading Powys' In Defence of Sensuality in conjunction with Wolf Solent.</p> <p>A synopsis of the Defence is presented in order that the reader may become familiar with Powys' philosophy. It is contended that many critics, if they had paid close attention to the Defence would not have arrived at some of their critical and explanatory statements, especially in reference to Powys' amorality and the relationship between Wolf and Christie Malakite.</p> <p>The thesis proper is divided into four main sections each dealing with important aspects of the novel. The first section deals with incest and homosexuality; the second with Ann Haggard and William Solent; the third with Gerda Torp and Christie Malakite and the fourth with Wolf's voyage of discovery.</p> <p>Each section is closely examined in reference to the problems critics have encountered with each, and the clarification of these problems by reference to In Defence of Sensuality.</p>|
