Zweitausendeins, Frankfurt, Second impression. Teal cloth. Silver lettered blue panel to spine. Dustjacket very slightly edgeworn. Published by Picador About this Item: Picador, Soft Cover. Condition: Very Good -. Powys is also so repetitious that he makes DH Lawrence another writer to whom he is compared seem a model of clarity.
There are lengthy digressions that add nothing to our understanding of either the characters or the story, and some of the villagers — talking in straw-in-the-hair yokel-speak — can be very tiresome indeed.
A Glastonbury Romance
Yet despite these impediments, it is an astonishing novel. Reading it may be like being gripped by a madman, but when you are finally released from that grip, you will never behold the world in the same way again. He describes every tree, flower, bird, meadow and copse with a sense of wonder.

Even the humble louse is given a role in the unstoppable pageant of being. Every stone and brick has a soul. The moss and lichen are exalted. A chapter on the West Wind, which blows through the town in the middle of the night, taking with it the dreams of the sleepers, is a lyrical tour de force that makes the head spin.
A Glastonbury Romance
Like Proust, a very different breed of novelist, Powys uses words to convey what lies beyond language. Like Proust, he is the master of his own world. Although he spent much of his adult life in America, Powys was brought up in Somerset, and A Glastonbury Romance is an exploration of the clay that made the English, truly English.
One might say, swimming against the tide of so much sloppy modern thinking, that it is a multicultural novel, though those cultures are Roman and Norman as well as Saxon and Celtic.
The cultures, it hardly needs to be said but should be said anyway, that shaped our civilisation. If you regard that as pretentious drivel, Powys is clearly not for you. But if you sense there is something in those words, then A Glastonbury Romance may one day tell you that it wants to be read.
Should you act upon that impulse, it may turn out to be one of the most remarkable experiences of your life. Love puzzles? Get the best at Telegraph Puzzles. Books on Amazon.
