Newsletter no. 9 – Notes

The year-book of the British Powys Society, The Powys Journal vol. XVI, has now been issued, edited by J. Lawrence Mitchell and Charles Lock. There are several articles on the Powys brothers. On John you can find an essay by Charles Lock, focusing on the homeric novels, i.e. Atlantis (1954) and Homer and the Aether (1959). Richard Maxwell contributes with a text on Porius (1951).
