I think it’s safe to say that The Magus was one of the most profoundly amazing reading experiences of my life. What does it all mean? OK, granted, it’s partly about how the narrator comes to realize he’s fucked up about this, but pages of desperate desire for the female muse alternating with enraged desire to whip literally and crush metaphorically various of the women involved in the narrator’s ‘education’, followed by 50 pages of “oh I must try and do better” For other uses, see The Magus disambiguation.

No pantheism, no humanism. It’s Urfe’s own curiosity that draws him to the game and his own willingness to stay with it. His interest in the town’s local history resulted in his appointment as curator of the Lyme Regis Museum ina position he filled for a decade.

Nicholas loses his ability to determine what is real and what is artifice. If you’re someone who wants a tidy ending, The Magus will not be for you.

When leaving England, Nicholas calls to mind how he needs more mystery in his life. Oh, and the book is also intensely romantic. One gets one explanation – the Christian, the psychological, the scientific I gave up because I am a quitter but I am sure if I had carried on reading I’d have been none-the-wiser anyway. I’m really missing Nicholas Urfe.


A Life in Two Worldswas jhn inand the first volume of his journals appeared the same year followed recently by volume two. This daring literary thriller, rich with eroticism and suspense, is one of John Fowles’s best-loved and bestselling novels and has contributed significantly to his international reputation as a writer of the first degree.

Has anyone here read the original version and the revised edition? While looking for another job, Nicholas takes up with Alison Kelly, an Australian girl he met at a party in London. Things that make Nicholas question reality. For Nicholas personally, the masque represents a supernatural conflict between order and chaos, between the rational and the irrational, between the predetermined and the willed or voluntary.

What follows takes up most of the novel. After quitting a teaching job in England, he accepts another job teaching at a school for boys on the remote Greek island of Phraxos.

The Magus by John Fowles. But I knew I wouldn’t stop, that I was free to stop, but that, rather than feeling obliged to finish or understand, I exercised my freedom to explore and discover. While habitually wandering around the island, he stumbles upon an estate and soon meets its owner, a wealthy Greek recluseMaurice Conchis.

The only problem is, without telling us, Fowles turns it into a suspenseful philosophical experiment as well. Open Preview See a Problem?

World War II ended shortly after his training began so Fowles never came near combat, and by he had decided that the military life mavicianul not for him. Toward the end of the novel, we as readers join Nicholas in asking: I read and really enjoyed The Collector.


He seduces lots of women for his amusement and then drops them. But something much wider, cooler and more abstruse.

The Magus by John Fowles

Is it all a big conspiracy? John Fowles passed away on November 5, after a long illness. Alison was always feminine; she never, like so many English girls, betrayed her gender.

In short, it’s an old-fashioned novel and it’s a Strangely Disturbing Novel, Many Possible Interpretations This novel is particularly tough to review.

It was both commercially and critically successful, at one point selling over four million copies. If anything, we must all continue waiting.

Refresh and try again. The becoming and the being were one. What is the connection between truth and beauty? If you read this novel as a citizen ofa member of our hyper-speed, uber-connected modern society that navel-gazes in word bytes with little interest in true introspection, The Magus will seem almost comical in its psycho-thrilling, Jungian dribbling plot and Baroque-meets-mod writing style.
