The Ebony Tower (1974) by John Fowles consists of 5 short novels with interlacing themes, built around a medieval myth: The Ebony Tower, Eliduc, Poor Koko, The Enigma and The Cloud.

The Ebony Tower[edit]

  • Henry Breasley: Paint. Just paint. This is my advice. And leave the clever talk to the poor sods who can't.

The Cloud[edit]

  • The princess calls, but there is no one, now, to hear her.

The Enigma[edit]

  • The tender pragmatisms of flesh have poetries no enigma - human or divine - can deminish or demean. Indeed, it can only cause them, and then walk out.
