Huffaker, associate editor of Studies in the Novel, in this
sparklingly-written book regards his subject through a self-
reflecting mirror, confident that time will confirm major
claims that the book confers.
--MLA South Central Bulletin
Huffaker's book is the most complete, comprehensive, and detailed of any yet published about John Fowles.
--The Yearbook of English Studies
Huffaker's is a more sophisticated TEAS volume than many . . . . succinctly relating each work to a number of pervasive themes--the importance of nature, "freedom of will and of expression," and others. --Year's Work in English Studies
Not fearing to discuss difficult scenes which others have glossed over, Huffaker . . . weaves historical perspective, evolution, fictional modes, Jungian motifs, naturalism, existentialism, and more into his analysis. --South Atlantic Review
Huffaker offers valuable discussion of Fowles's time in France and Greece
and of the influence these experiences had upon his life and work.
--Multicultural Writers Since 1945
From the Author
I first published this volume in 1980 as a part of the Twayne English Author's Series, to whom I am grateful for returning the print copyright to me after its original five printings. I am also grateful to the scholars and other readers who have responded to this book, with the hope that it will continue to be useful as one of the first critical looks at the work of John Fowles, with whom I corresponded for a number of years while he worked with the natural history museum in his Dorset town of Lyme Regis.
Because of the series format's demanding that I summarize plots of John Fowles's stories, I caution you to enjoy his work before letting my revelations spoil the delight of the read.
In memory of John Fowles, a fellow country boy,
