In trying to explain different approaches to ‘the Magus’ Fowles explained to a young girl: It lost its power – after a while I just stopped caring whether whatever Maurice, the master puppeteer, said was true, or what the real intentions of the other characters were, or what. The one is a fear, a cog, and the other an engineer, a driver. One can say that, perhaps, at the time it was written it was a good book. What does it all mean?

The novel ends quoting the refrain of the Pervigilium Venerisan anonymous work of fourth-century Latin poetry, which has been taken as indicating the possible preferred resolution of the ending’s ambiguity.

Eventually, Nicholas realises that the re-enactments of the Nazi occupationthe absurd playlets after Sadeand the obscene parodies of Greek myths are not about Conchis’s life, but his own. These include Alain-Fournier ‘s Le Grand Meaulnesfor showing a secret hidden world to be explored, and Richard Jefferies ‘ Bevisfor projecting a very different world.

I can see all the ratings but around the book itself there is a sphinx like silence. This page was last edited on 27 Decemberat Amazon Restaurants Food delivery from local restaurants.

There’s a problem loading this menu right now. Thoroughly disenchanted with the course his life has taken, and gauging wit I have rarely been so unpleasantly surprised – and bitterly disappointed – by the sudden turn that a novel takes as with the abrupt shift that occurs roughly mid-way through John Fowles The Magus.

No sympathy, no antipathy. The only problem is, without telling us, Fowles turns it into a suspenseful philosophical experiment as well. Well, he fowlees gets his wish when he meets old Maurice Conchis and is initiated in unexpected ways into the atrocities of World War I and then the Nazis, the vitality of Greek theater and mask acting, isolation and religious fanaticism, hypnotism and mysticism, Freudian psychoanalysis and Jungian archetypes, ancient pagan religions inexplicably mingling with science and humanism.

The Greek island setting is enigmatic and intoxicating. I returned to an e-copy on my return. A truly intriguing and otherwordly tale made clinical and cold in the most frustrating of ways though I realize that, for others, the novel could be the obverse: The endless solitude of the one, its total enislement from all else, seemed the same thing as the total inter-relationship of the all.

When women were shits because men said they were. I want to admit that, although one could never call this book even remotely nice to women or homosexuals or black menit is-not excusable-but explainable by the era it was written in.

The prose is both profound and contrived, both elegant and farcical, both beautiful and obscene. I’m no intellectual literary critic, plus I’m a little lazy, so there won’t be any pondering of the various philosophical, mythological, psychological, political, sociological questions raised in The Magusof which there are innumerable examples. As I read it, I thought of the many other books and media products that influenced it, and in turn, it influenced.

I think it’s safe to say that Magiciankl Magus was one of the most profoundly amazing reading experiences of my life. When leaving England, Nicholas calls to mind how he needs more mystery in his life.
