Fowles’un gözden kaçmış son derece kişisel yazılarını topladığı Zaman Tüneli, hemen her konuyu merak eden, bu merakını okuruna da bulaştırmak isteyen bir yazarın yirminci yüzyıla kişisel bakışını gözler önüne seriyor. Böylelikle, bu dil ve kurgu ustasının zihninin coğrafyasını ortaya koyan yazıların yeni ufuklar açma konusunda romanlarından geri kalmadığını da görüyoruz.Fowles deneme, edebiyat eleştirisi, yorum, anı, düşünce ve otobiyografik notlarından oluşan bu yapıtında, yaşamı boyunca kafasını kurcalayan, onu düşündüren ve eğlendiren konulara değinerek, bir anlamda zihninin kara kutusunu okurlarına açıyor.Zaman Tüneli dört bölümden oluşuyor: Yazmak ve Kimlik, Kültür ve Toplum, Edebiyat ve Edebiyat Eleştirisi, Doğa ve Doğanın Doğası. Fowles 1963 yılından bugüne dek kaleme aldığı, bu dört ana başlık altında toplanan yazılarında, kurmaca sanatı, edebiyatla hayat ve ölümsüzlük arasındaki ilişki üzerine düşüncelerini ifşa ederken; edebiyat, sanat, kimlik, kültür, estetik, toplum ve doğa gibi konularda kafa yoranlar için de verimli ve düşündürücü bir aydınlanma alanı oluşturuyor. Bu arada okur, çağımızın en büyük edebiyatçılarından birinin romanlarını yazmaya başlamadan önce yaptığı hazırlığa, karakterleriyle kurduğu ilişkiye, özellikle de kadın karakterleriyle yaşadığı aşka, bir tanrıcılık oyununa benzettiği roman yazma sanatının ona suçluluk duygusu veren “kötücül” zevklerine tanık oluyor. Fowles’un romanlarının büyüsüne kapılanlar, eminiz ki onun zihnine açılan bu pencereden içeri sızıp romanlarının yaratılış sürecini takip etme fırsatını kaçırmayacaklardır.Fransız Teğmenin Kadını ve Büyücü gibi romanları bilen herkes, Fowles’un sezgisi güçlü ve zeki bir yazar olduğunu biliyor, fakat bu derleme, romancının aynı zamanda, büyüleyici ve eğlendirici bir deneme yazarı olduğunu da gösteriyor."

    Yazım üslubu çeviride bazı aksamalar olduğunu düşündürmekle beraber John Fowles'i tanımak için bire bir eser. Bazı eserlerinin oluşum sürecine dair çok değerli ipuçları vardı. Edebiyatın gizli dünyasına giriş diyebilirim. Güzeldi...

    John Fowles is amazing. The Magus is on my top ten list of favorite books of all time. I've loaned it to friends and been jealous of them knowing they were about to experience it for the first time. I was riveted when I read The Collector last summer, and I keep putting off reading The French Lieutenant's Woman, because I don't think I have yet reached the point in my life when I will appreciate it the most...if that makes sense! Anyway, I'm really excited about this collection of essays by Fowles. His writing is full of razor sharp wit, humor, candid truths and enticing commentary on the sensual and deviant nature of our internal struggles as human beings. What more could you ask for, really?!

    This was actually my first introduction to Fowles, as I hadn't read any of his other work before I picked up this collection of essays. It's definitely interesting, as he can weave in historical anecdotes with views on other authors and fiction in general.However, sometimes I think he just forgets to shut up. I know the Brits can talk us to death, but if I see that in actual prose, I prefer the mastery of a Dickens to make me believe. Again, very good essays, but sometimes they feel like some editing should have been performed.Book Season = Autumn (maybe Fowles can explain it)

    I adore Fowles. I hate that there are no more new Fowles novels.

    I really enjoyed these essays included in this volume. While I have never read anything by Fowles before this particular collection I truly felt that it was okay reading this first. There is an essay in this collection where Fowles discusses the kind of books he collects from used book stores. He is not judgmental over what others buy, but discusses original Science Fiction and other obscure pieces. I felt I understood this as I often go to used book stores seeking classics that no other person I know wants to read. I do not go looking for first editions as I am not looking for particular covers or anything of that type. I like to look for the title that influenced my favorite authors when they were writing. That is a major reason why I read literary criticism. I want a bigger reading list. Brand new books are nice and I do buy them when I have money. When I walk into a used book store I want to look for the books that the library does not own and that the new book stores do not carry as publishers may feel that are not worth keeping in print. Genre has never been important to me. I will read anything. So it is refreshing to read an author who admits to hi own reading quirks.While writing about reading and the writing process Fowles discusses his views to nature. I found this interesting as my father thought the same way though he did not have the eloquence of Mr. Fowles. My dad detested pesticides to the point as children my siblings and I were made fun of for the dandelions and crabgrass in our lawns. I never knew that there was a whole group of people that felt this new conservationism should come from individuals one yard at a time. I can appreciate this aspect of my father now that he has passed and more and more dandelions are everywhere again. it could also be that over the past forty years more and more wildlife has returned and other people like to look at them. There was not so many wild critters in my childhood. It is also interesting as Fowles came to love nature after he hunted and collected it. I never hunted. As my father did not and I never had a boyfriend to teach me how. I respect the hunter's place in the biosphere though and take issue with towns that use sharpshooters to get rid of excess wildlife as I personally feel a hunting lottery would allow some revenue from the hunt. These of course are not issues addressed in any of these essays. I have been reading a lot of ecology issue books lately. As a result I am forming some strong opinions that are influencing my other book reviews. I am not sure if this is good or bad, but it is helping me to improve my writing and that is a good thing.I enjoyed the literary criticism I read in this volume. Having taken a class on Jamestown while at Rutgers University I was intrigued reading Fowles essays on "Islands". In that class both the "Tempest" and William Strachey's pamphlet were required. A fresh approach to a familiar topic is always welcome as I need to reread both at some point. There were many book that Fowles mentioned in his various essays that intrigued me. I am not sure when I may have the opportunity to do all that reading, but I would like to try. I did take some out of the library that I may get to before I am required to return them, but I never know how much time I will have to read. Reading is my favorite pastime and a book such as this that discusses other books sends me on journeys I would otherwise never have the chance to take. Each and every piece of writing I pick up takes me on a different path to discovering my true nature. This was one of those volumes that truly makes the reader discover who they really are and what they think of writers. Writers write to sell. There is no denying that. What he really thinks of the best sellers list we never really find out but he does not blame the popular authors for their fame and fortune. He does seem to detest some of what academe does when they deconstruct a book or rather more accurately a novel. He does not like to take them apart. He recognizes that print media and the visual media have different limitation and that we need to understand that a true to book movie is not going to be a good as the book and vice-versa.This was mentioned in an essays in regards to the filming of "The French Lieutenant's Woman". It took a few times before the right talent was found to put this novel on celluloid. Fowles respects this: other authors may not. There are changes that have to be made in a novel for it to work on the screen. Some of this is because facial emotions are easier to show on screen than describe these subtle movements in prose. Besides these facial movements can never be described in narrative. Fowles writes a lot about narrative usage. While this is not a how to write a great novel book there are many things that Fowles brings up that an aspiring writing can use to improve his craft. I also found it interesting that Fowles does not do research before he writes the first draft. He does not like historical fiction so his novels are placed in the past, but written in the present. I find this interesting as I have always felt that no book is completely separated from the year in which is is written. There are always subtle clues that a reader can pick up on while reading. There were just so many great ideas I discovered while reading this that it is hard to name them all. Another thing that has to do with politics and religion is that Fowles believes that the Socialist/Leftest movements are too unionist in character. I can not personally myself vote for a union because I do not like being told how to think. As a consequence I tend to vote more conservatively, but I am not sure that is always how I feel, either. No, I do not believe in the Libertarian viewpoint of almost no government either. I believe in a system of checks and balances with a careful review of what works and what does not. I am not sure what system Fowles wants, but I do not reside in England. He claims to be an atheist, but I felt reading him that he was more of the eighteenth century deist in his thinking. Not liking organized religion does not necessarily make one an atheist. I read glimpses of a belief in a some higher power in these writings.I also liked his view on the Odyssey and wished that I had been able to read it when I read Homer in college as I probably written a better essay. By nature I enjoy plot and I find it difficult to write without talking of the plot. In college I learned that this is not necessarily important to analyzing a novel or story. The Odyssey ending in medias res confused my writing. While I understood the concept I did not have the words I needed at the time to describe why Ulysses felt the need to leave home after wandering for twenty years. Fowles explains it quite well and brings up gender in a way that I have personally never thought of before this book.I would recommend this book to everyone who wants to read about books and movies in a refreshing new light. This was an enjoyable read and I have some new lists of books to find because I took the time to read this.

    This collection of essays revolves around rapport before comprehension and ardently strides forward with the motto “ignorance is bliss”, or a state of narcissistic purgatory one can learn to appreciate.

    John Fowles has long been one of my favourite writers, a relationship not spoiled by having to "do" him at University.This collection of essays was published in 1998 shortly before his death in 2005. He says that he hopes to publish his diaries and these were published in 2003 and 2006. These essays appear to be the summation of a life, Fowles states that he is nearly 70, reviewing, cataloguing and taking stock. There is a humility in them that is rare among today's literati. Fowles viewpoint is always original and one can hear his voice coming through the page as if in conversation. The essays are actually more intimate that the interview which completes the volume.Altogether a fascinating read.

    - I read only select essays from this book, but the ones I did were brilliant.- As a writer myself, I thoroughly enjoyed them and felt as if he was penetrating my own creative brain, except he uses such sophistication of language & ideas that made it a pleasure to read.- I find very few contemporary writers nowadays have this unique intersection & blend of thoughts, ideas, the nature of nature and the nature of creativity, the feminist element that communicates a writer's craft and process so eloquently. If you are a creator, this book will make you think.- John Fowles is one of my favourite writers and this book of essays is no exception.

    Some 40 years ago I sometime saw one of John Fowles's novels, that is, "The French Lieutenant's Woman" in many good bookstores in Bangkok but then I didn't have any motive to read it. Today (June 3) I came across this memoir/essays and it's my delight to know he had used this title, "I Write Therefore I am" since 1964 when I was still a student in a secondary school (Year 12).Therefore, again, I think this book should be interesting enough for me to read since he did echo such an inspiring title from "I think, therefore I am" famously proclaimed by Descartes, one of the great French philosophers hundreds of years ago.

    Wormholes is a book about John Fowles thought processes throughout his life that are apparent in his writing. The book is comprised of a series of essays and it is apparent the metamorphosis of ideologies and views he had throughout his writing career. At least for my situation; (being a high school student with an average vocabulary) had an extremely difficult time getting through this book. With the insurmountable vocabulary and the spectrum of topics glossed over, I would not recommend this book to the faint of heart or the young. If you are a reader whose fascinated by the human physique, that reader would enjoy the book.

    What an appalling piece of dreck from an author capable of writing interesting material. Not here apparently. The literary equivalent of one of those horrible movies involving Rob Schneider.
