The Deposition by James Cowan

“I’ve never wanted to be pigeon-holed. I think I have come from that old tradition of literature where writers should not just be writing good novels or poetry, but should also try to take on big themes. In The Deposition, I am looking again at the story of those who survived the death of Christ. At first I thought, you can’t write about Christ, it’s been done to death. But, as a writer, you’ve got to take on some of the big subjects to see if there’s anything new to say about them. So I am constantly looking for ways of re-expressing old virtualities; seeing whether or not you can extract new flecks of gold out of old stories. A writer can’t afford to just sit there and write about realities as they are. He has to dig deeply into the great issues of all time.”
