West Berkshire is situated in the south of England, halfway between London and Bristol. Adams was raised in a rural area on the outskirts of Newbury, where his father was a doctor. He spent much of his early childhood roaming the heaths open areas where low shrubs grow and rolling hills around the family's home. When he was nine, Adams was sent to a boarding school, which he hated, although he was a good student. After leaving the military and completing his bachelor's degree in modern history at Oxford, he began a career in civil service. He served as the assistant secretary to a government department that handled environmental issues. Air pollution from coal had become an important target for the department, and Adams authored the regulations that would become the Clean Air program in England.

Despite the fact that the book had been rejected by several agents and publishers before Collings, Watership Down became an enormous success, 4 Goran Hermeran, Influence in Art and Literature Princeton: Princeton University Press, , pp.

Watership Down 39 a film was made and Adams, now rich and famous, decided to give up his job in the civil service to become a full-time writer. However, what are the reasons for the public's positive response? A few answers have been given by critics over the last few years see, for instance, James S. Nevertheless, the key to the understanding of the novel's success has never been pointed out; to a large extent the success of Adams's book is due to the fact that it subjects the reader to a two-sided defamiliarization.

In order to explain this process it is necessary to examine the relationship between a number of technical devices used by Adams, and the nature of the adventure itself. Watership Down began as an oral narrative; Adams told his two small daughters the rabbits' tale to entertain them during several journeys to Stratford-upon-Avon. Later on he decided to write his tale down.

This explains to a certain extent the existence of some links which connect the novel to the folktale. The involvement of the readers—of the audience—is all-important, and the storyteller does not hesitate in addressing his public now and then in order to draw them closer to the plot: "And 'what happened in the end?

The first one is the traditional indirect free style, by means of which the characters' doubts and worries are scattered all through- out the book, as in the case of Hazel, the rabbit leader who, through the narrator's voice, asks himself, "What was in the bracken?

What lay around the further bend? And what would happen to a rabbit who left the shelter of the holly tree and ran down the path? He turned to Dandelion beside him" p. The second technical device to attract the reader's attention is not, however, as traditional as the indirect free style. It consists of the effect provoked in the reader when he is made to perceive external reality from a rabbit's point of view.

All our senses must be continuously alert to follow the small animals in their quest: "The rabbits had gone only a short distance through the wood when they sensed that they were already near the river.

The ground became soft and damp.

They could smell sedge and water. Suddenly, the harsh, vibrating cry of a moorhen echoed through the trees, followed by a flapping of wings and a watery scuttering.

T h e rustling of the leaves seemed also to echo, as though reflected distantly from hard ground. The novel The Plague Dogs , however, was another bestseller, bringing to light the issues of animal testing in the medical field. It was made into a film in He continued to write novels, and in Adams wrote Tales of Watership Down, a sequel to his first bestseller. The sequel did not, however, reach the same status as his first and most popular novel.

Adams wrote works of nonfiction on interactions with nature in collaboration with the British naturalist Max Hooper and with the Welsh naturalist R. Adams also wrote an autobiography entitled The Day Gone By By the time Richard Adams died on December 24, , he had written 20 books, which is remarkable considering he didn't begin to write until he was 52 years old.

Adams's Watership Down remains influential as a novel that brought back the genre of anthropomorphic fiction in which nonhumans speak and think like humans. Unlike other authors, however, Adams kept the realism of the natural world. He combined the real habits of European rabbits with the ability to speak English.

When critics tried to assign a deeper allegorical meaning to the novel, Adams countered with what could be said to sum up his intent for much of his writing: "It's not meant to be a parable. I wish I'd known a bit earlier.
