How is our context of todays life going to be able to produce meanings we make from 'The Collector' - John Fowles?.. As it was written in the 60's, again, how is out context able to esablish meanings?

Ok...I've read Fowles but not The Collector. This is a stupid ass question...maybe I misread it. Authors - Especially Notable authors such as Fowles - can relate to many generations. Oh Shakespeare is OUT OF CONTEXT...you know what I mean? Fowles' the Magus is one of my favorite books. I being a 20 year old boy living in the 21st century absolutely felt an emotional connection with his words...he gives a plot level, a hidden level, universal level, cosmic level. His cosmic level writing is out there, I've said it before and I'll say it again...smoke a doober and check it out. Ha anyways...you're gay

The Collector was made into a movie with Alan Bates. I can't
recall what the actress' name was who played the woman.
At the time, I was shocked by the movie, but thought it
was excellent.

Yes, I thought much the same thing about the movie - I admired it a good deal, but even so I wouldn't want to see it again in a hurry. It wasn't Alan Bates though, it starred Terence Stamp and Samantha Eggar.

the following article is an excellent read:
Killer Read
The Collector has inspired at least five serial killers and 40 murders. If you’re too scared to read it, you can at least read about it.
Maxim, Oct 2005

An Understated Psycho
Wyler's "The Collector" is a subtle, chilling affair.
