John Cowper Powys
This 1906 leaflet publicising a series of lectures by JCP in 1906 presents JCP’s outline notes for lectures covering Cowper, Burns, Wordsworth, Shelley, Tennyson, Browning, and Matthew Arnold. It fleshes out this important period in JCP’s life as a University Extension Lecturer with its format of six fortnightly lectures.

W.J. Keith’s four Reader’s Companions to major works of John Cowper Powys give background information — on JCP’s life, mythological references, historical background — in handy alphabetically arranged guides. These serve as helpful guides to a first reader of a complex novel such as Porius unfamiliar with Welsh mythology, and essential reference books for those re-reading John Cowper Powys’s major works.
John Cowper Powys and Magic
JCP and Magic (Part 1) has been reformatted specially for this website from a less-than-perfect pdf of la lettre powysienne 26 (Autumn 2013).
Keith presents this essay as a supplement to his book Ultimate Things: magic being an allied subject to religion and mythology, and space not permitting its inclusion there. Part 1 is presented here, Part 2 is available in la lettre powysienne 27 (Spring 2014).
