Daniel Martin (novel)
Daniel Martin is a novel by John Fowles. It was first published in 1977 and can be taken as a Bildungsroman, following the life of the eponymous protagonist; the novel uses both first and third person voices, whilst employing a variety of literary techniques such as multiple narratives and flashback. The author suggests that the book is concerned with "Englishness - what it is like to be English in the late 20th century. Daniel Martin is the story of a Hollywood screenwriter who returns to his native England when a friend from university asks to see him before he dies. With flashbacks to his childhood in the 1940s and time at university in Oxford, a tale of frustrated love emerges; the dying man asks him to look after his wife Jane. Daniel had, in fact, married Jane's sister, despite loving Jane. While in England, Daniel improves relations with his estranged wife. Daniel and Jane go on a cruise visiting Egypt and Lebanon. Daniel breaks up with his Scottish girlfriend, the two lovers are reunited at the end of the book.
In summer 1969 Fowles commenced work on'The Two Englishmen', which he renamed'Futility', which became Daniel Martin. A second draft was begun in April 1974 and he worked on the novel throughout 1974/75. Final amendments were made in March 1977; the novel can be seen as autobiographical. John Fowles states in an interview: "You are every character. In Daniel Martin, where I describe myself travelling all over America, I revealed more of myself than anywhere else."In exploring the relationships between the main characters, Fowles takes the chance to expand upon such topics as aesthetics, philosophy of cinema, archeology and the differences between Britain and the United States. John Gardner calls upon Daniel Martin many times in the first half of On Moral Fiction; the same notion was Gardner's central thesis in On Moral Fiction. Robert McCrum states "It was the American literary press. Writing in The New York Times William H. Pritchard opined "This new, ambitious novel must be judged best piece of work to date and is a masterly fictional creation, dense with fact."
