This chapter discusses the reformulation of John Cowper Powys's political and social outlook as a result of the Spanish Revolution and the resultant impact on his fiction and other writings. It traces the way in which he came to adopt social anarchism. Powys calls himself an ‘anarchistic individualist’ in his literary works and later committed himself to the ‘social ideal’ of ‘philosophical anarchy’.
