Wilson Jones Address Books. An enormously prolific writer, having written to date over 80 major works on a wide variety of subjects: philosophy, religion, occult and supernatural phenomenea, music, sex, crime and critical theory. Wilson spent several years in the s as a writer in residence at Hollins College, Virginia. Dreaming to Some Purpose. Colin Wilson. Colin Wilson wrote The Outsider, a brilliant account of the pain of being alive today, when he was just twenty-four.
Like Lord Byron. The Outsider sold millions of copies around the world, and he was acclaimed as one of the leading intellectuals of the age.
Because of his radically new attitudes he was - with John Osborne - dubbed an 'angry young man' in the article that originally coined that phrase. In this way a young man from a working class background suddenly found himself moving in the most colourful literary and artistic circles of the day. But perhaps an even greater theme is his interest in trying to discover and develop ways of controlling his own consciousness, so that he could attain 'peak experiences' at will and also keep madness at bay.
Many of his contemporaries accused Colin Wilson of betraying his youthful intellectual promise, by later writing bestsellers on subjects such as the paranormal and the mysteries of ancient Egypt, but in this return to the themes of The Outsider, looked at from the point of his own life story, he again proves himself one of the great intellectuals of our age, never ceasing to wrestle with the great questions of life and death, and writing with an erudition and an easy way with ideas that is rare in English literary life.
