John Fowles ve Sinema

Çağdaş İngiliz edebiyatının büyük ustalarından John Fowles, 5 Kasım’da ‘yaşayan ölüler alemi’nden göçüp ‘ölümsüzler dünyası’na naklini istediğinde bir dönemin de sonu gelmiş oldu. Romanlarının varoluşçuluktan beslenen güçlü yapısı ve karakterlerine yüklediği ‘ekstra’ görevlerle edebiyat dünyasında kendine sarsılmaz bir yer edinen yazar, hikâye anlatmanın ‘sonuç’ (ve berraklık) kaygısından uzak kulvarının öncülerinden biriydi. 899 more words
