  The eponymous character of the novel, thirty-five year-old Wolf Solent, has been fired from his job as a history teacher at a grammar school in London. He finds new employment in Ramsgard as a literary assistant to a peculiar old squire who is writing a scandalous history of Dorset as well as a part time position in another grammar school.   His six major novels - Wolf Solent (), A Glastonbury Romance (), Weymouth Sands (), Maiden Castle (), Owen Glendower () and Porius () - are formidably long, and not always Author: Margaret Drabble.

Genre/Form: Fiction Historical fiction: Additional Physical Format: Online version: Powys, John Cowper, Wolf Solent. New York: Harper & Row, , © Before Wolf Solent there had been four earlier apprentice novels; Wood and Stone (), Rodmoor (), the posthumous After my Fashion (), which was written around , and Ducdame (). Wolf Solent was the first of the so-called Wessex novels, which include A Glastonbury Romance (), Weymouth Sands () and Maiden Castle ().Genre: Novel, poetry, philosophy.

This book operates on two distinct levels. The first level is a Lawrentian story of adultery and cuckoldry in a small English country town. Wolf Solent arrives in the town where he was born, after an absence of many years, to take up the post of secretary to the local squire.4/5(5). A Glastonbury Romance is an immense book. There are 47 principle characters in all and if that's not a lot, there's always all the extras whose names make it in but who quickly pass out. A Glastonbury Romance encompasses the widest girth of human experience I could imagine, as I can't wonder what John Cowper Powys has left out/5.
