Theodore Francis Powys was a member of the literary Powys family. He left his farm in Suffolk at the age of twenty-six to retire to the small village of East Chaldon and write. Living like a hermit, he wrote novels, short stories, and fables. His works often had rural settings, and were marked by universal themes of good and evil, love, and death; they were infused with the powerful imagery of Powys' unique interpretation of Christianity.
