THE END

REMINISCENT OF DOSTOIEVSKY

WOOD AND STONE

A ROMANCE

By JOHN COWPER POWYS

12mo, 722 pages, $1.50 net

This is an epoch marking novel by an author “who is dramatic as is no other now writing.”—­Oakland Enquirer.

In this startling and original romance, the author turns aside from the track of his contemporaries and reverts to models drawn from races which have bolder and less conventional views of literature than the Anglo-Saxon race.  Following the lead of the Great Russian Dostoievsky, he proceeds boldly to lay bare the secret passions, the unacknowledged motives and impulses, which lurk below the placid-seeming surface of ordinary human nature.

It has been reviewed favorably by all of America’s principal newspapers, as the following extracts from press notices will indicate: 

BOSTON TRANSCRIPT:  “His mastery of language, his knowledge of human impulses, his interpretation of the forces of nature and of the power of inanimate objects over human beings, all pronounce him a writer of no mean rank....  He can express philosophy in terms of narrative without prostituting his art; he can suggest an answer without drawing a moral; with a clearer vision he could stand among the masters in literary achievement.”
