JOHN FOWLES’S NOVELS AS SEARCHES OF THE PERSONAL FREEDOM AT THE CONTEXT OF “ENGLISHNESS”

Cover Page

Abstract


We look into J. Fowles novels in relation to England and «Englishness» and come to the conclusion that one of the leading ideas of his work is the adoption of personal freedom. In the novels “the Sorcerer”, “the Collector”, “the French Lieutenant›s Mistress” Fowles says about justice and freedom. The writer doubts the objective status of the concept of “justice” and instead puts forward the notion of individual freedom. Although the national character is based on the confidence in theirs justice, Fowles speaks of inner personal freedom as the adoption of national characteristics and their overcoming in the process of personal growth.
