Here is my request: I loved “The Magus” because it is exceptionally well written, and also because the “psycho-social” context resonates so strongly with the culture of those of us who grew up in the 60s and 70s.
Beautiful and the lead characters remind me towles each other. Has anyone here read the original version and the revised edition? I have heard the original version is superior but I only heard that after buying the magicianuo edition and I decided magiciwnul sally forth with it. I have a little less than pages left. Without spoiling it, can anyone give opinions on which version you feel is better and why? What is the difference between the two? John King This answer contains spoilers… view spoiler [ The Magus is my favorite novel.
I’ve both versions magicinul a total of 13 times and even taken many notes. If you’ve read one version then the other is …more The Magus is my favorite novel.
If you’ve read one version then the other is slightly spoiled. No getting around that. My first reading was the original which I found more supernatural than the revised. However, I think that was due to the fact it was my first reading and the mystery was overwhelming. On rereading the original I no longer find it as supernatural. To answer your question I prefer the revised version. The differences are that Fowles changed a couple of words here and there for most of the book as his style had improved.
He rearranged a few scenes and added some. Sister Rose has more to do in the revised, and instead of just teasing Nicolas, Lily let’s him have sex with her. Fowles said that he regretted not being so bold in the original. Also, the ending in the original infuriated some readers because of its ambiguity. So in the revised Fowles give hints that Alison and Nicolas will get back together but he is not sure if they will last. Fowles wrote that an ending like a death so he liked to leave his stories maticianul.
That way they live on in the mind. See all 10 questions about The Magus…. Lists with This Book. Aug 24, Glenn Russell rated it it was amazing.

It fits no neat category; it is at once a pyrotechnical extravaganza, a wild, hilarious charade, a dynamo of suspense and horror, a profoundly serious probing into the nature of moral consciousness, a dizzying, electrifying chase through the labyrinth of the soul, an allegorical romance, a sophisticated account of modern love, a ghost story that will send shivers racing magiianul the spine.
Lush, compulsive, richly “”The Magus” is a stunner, magnificent in ambition, supple and gorgeous in execution. Lush, compulsive, richly inventive, eerie, provocative, impossibly theatrical–it is, in spite of itself, convincing. Let me tell you folks, this was one powerful literary experience – not only did I read the book but I also listened to the outstanding audio version, read by Nicholas Boulton.
This pager begins with Nicholas Urfe recounting his background as an only child of middle class parents, stickler brigadier father, an officious military man down to his toes, a man forever trotting out words like discipline and tradition and responsibility to undergird his position on any topic, obedient housebound mother, public school education what in the US is called private schoolshort stint in the army during peacetime and then reading English at Oxford.
When one day at Oxford he receives word that both his mother and father died in an airplane crash, Nicholas feels a great relief since he no longer is obliged to carry around a huge sack of family baggage. When leaving England, Nicholas calls to mind how he needs more mystery in his life.
Well, he certain 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.
Pulled into the vortex of the brutality of recent European history and pushed out to hidden spiritual realms with a dose of romantic love thrown in along the way, Nicholas is forced to confront his basic philosophic assumptions: How free are we?

How much influence does our culture and historic epoch have on our values? Is there a universal foundation of morality beyond social convention? What is the connection between truth and beauty? Toward the end of the novel, we as readers join Nicholas in asking: Ultimately, what was the real intent and purpose of Maurice Conchis and his so called godgame? Are we delving deeper into the mysteries of the universe or the mysteries of a detective novel, or both?

The problem is, I can’t seem to stop picking it up again. We are thrown, whether we like it or not into the addled frantic mind of Nicholas Urfe, a man in the middle of a suspenseful psychological experiment.
The only problem is, without telling us, Fowles turns it into a suspenseful philosophical experiment as well. We are left never fully knowing what is My students like to use the made up word, “unputdownable.
We are left never fully knowing what is to come next, what is real and what is unreal. And we become so attached, so dependent upon Urfe, his reactions to the moments, his arrogant assumptions about what is true and what is false, that we become as mentally addled as he is and as incapable of leaving the invented world of the magus behind as he is.
My mother managed to put it down and leave it down. I drove on, like Urfe, deeper and deeper into the tormented abyss that is compulsion and an inability to accept freedom. All the while questioning everything I knew about love, about obligations, about intelligence, trust, truth, fiction, theater, and of course freedom.
I don’t know if I fully understand the book, just as Urfe doesn’t fully understand the experiment. But I knew I wouldn’t stop, that I was free to stop, but that, rather than feeling obliged to finish or understand, I exercised my freedom to explore and discover.
Rather than repeating the “unputdownable” line, I think this book can best be described as a Niel LaBute play put into prose or rather, LaBute is Fowles put into the theater.
You are never sure of your footing, never confident in your cowles, and sure, that no matter how you love the journey you will receive a wicked kidney punch in due course. And that love, and freedom, means that you are willing to accept the kidney punch, if that’s what it takes to understand. View all 16 comments. View all 12 comments.

Fowels 14, Jaidee rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: This is a book that can be easily dismissed when we are guarded, cynical, fearful or imperious. I started this book at a remote location with very small font that hurt my trifocal vision I returned to an e-copy on my return.
However this book was forever in my imagi 5 “cinematic, psychosexual thriller” stars!!
However this book was forever in my imagination and entered my dreams on those sultry nights while I heard the loons calling over the lake. I started by resisting this book and I was guarded, cynical, fearful and imperious towards it just as the protagonist was as he went through a most profound personal transformation from self-absorption to self-awareness.
A middle class Englishman Nicolas Urfe is without family or prospects. He is handsome and breaks women’s hearts particularly Alison a sensual and earthy Aussie.
He moves to an island in beautiful Greece to teach at an Academy and becomes embroiled in one of modern lit’s most interesting psychodramas headed by a high priest of manipulation Conchis and his acolytes or actors or fellow therapists or clergy. In fact, we never really find out who they are or what they want with our Englishman.
He is driven mad by sexual desire by two twin sisters while Alison haunts him from back home. He confuses selfishness with love, desire with necessity, sexuality for spirituality. He is psychologically tortured, manipulated, hurt and reborn by a series of incidents that lure him deeper into Conchis’ web.
We never find out what is real, what is supernatural, what is hypnosis, what are lies? As we read our own defenses come down and we are stricken to our core by some psychodynamic magic or perhaps the power of Ancient Greek Gods and Godesses.
