Item description for Fountain by Charles Morgan...

"The reader will be enchanted by the beauty of the setting, fascinated by the subtlety of the spiritual reasoning, the provisional speculations, enthralled by the ethereal love story..." wrote the Daily Telegraph. Set in Holland during WW1, the main characters are a British officer, a Dutch aristocrat and his British stepdaughter who is married to a German officer. A winner of the 1932 Hawthornden Prize.

Reviews - What do customers think about Fountain?

Hawthornden Prize winner  Oct 22, 2002
Since 1919 the Hawthornden Prize has been awarded each year to an English writer "for the best work of imaginative literature" and among the winners thereof which I have read are David Garnett's inimitable Lady Into Fox (won in 1923), Kate O'Brien's Without My Cloak (won in 1931), The Power and the Glory (won in 1941), The Price of Glory: Verdun 1916, by Alistair Horne (won in 1963), Mr. Stone and the Knights Companion, by V. S. Naipaul (won in 1964), Monk, by Paul Piers Read (won in 1970), and In Patagonia, by Bruce Chatwin (won in 1977). The Fountain is laid during World War One, in Holland, and concerns an English officer interned there and the English wife of a German officer. The book does considerable philosophizing and the first two-thirds of the book really drug as far as I was concerned. The book picks up in interest after that, but I cannot say I was greatly interested in the prime characters and their excuses for adultery.
