John Robert Fowles known as John Fowles (Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, March 31, 1926 – Lyme Regis, Dorset, November 5, 2005) He was a British novelist and essayist.
He was born in Leigh-on-Sea, the son of Robert J. Fowles, a prosperous tobacco merchant and Gladys Richards, a teacher. After studying at the Bedford School, he studied French and German at the University of Edinburgh and at the New College in Oxford. After graduating he served in the British Navy and in 1950, he began to work as a teacher in France, Greece and England.
The success of his first novel The Collector in 1963, made him leave teaching to devote himself exclusively to literature.
In 1968, Fowles moved to Lyme Regis in Dorset, which would serve as the setting for the novel The Woman of the French Lieutenant (The French Lieutenant’s Woman).
In that same year he adapted to the cinema his novel The Wizard (The Magus) directed by Guy Green (based on his experiences in Greece and written before The collector directed by William Wyler), but the film was unsuccessful. The wife of the French lieutenant also took to the screens in 1981, directed by Karel Reisz with a screenplay by playwright Harold Pinter (Nobel Prize for Literature in 2005), and for which he was nominated for an Oscar.
Fowles’ best-known non-fiction work is probably Aristos (The Aristos), a collection of philosophical reflections. Many critics consider him as the father of British Postmodernism.
He died at his home in Dorset on November 5, 2005, after a long battle against a stroke he suffered in 1988.
