Richard George Adams, born 9 May 1920, was an English novelist who is best known as the author of Watership Down, Shardik, The Plague Dogs, The Girl In A Swing.
He studied modern history at university before serving in the British Army during World War II. Afterwards, he completed his studies, and then joined the British Civil Service.
In 1974, two years after Watership Down was published, Adams became a full-time author. He was awarded with a Carnegie Medal in 1972 and a Guardian Medal in 1973.
He passed away on 24 December, 2016 at 96.
Personally, the book exudes a troubling, eerie calm that excites:
He began to whimper with fear. "What sort of thing - what do you mean? I thought you said there was no danger?"
The animated movie was made as a result of the modern classic, heroic fantasy novel by British writer Richard Adams. It is the odyssey of a group of rabbits escaping the destruction of their warren (home) as they struggle to seek another. Evoking epic themes, Watership Down (1971), takes its name from the rabbit's destination, a hill in the north of Hampshire, England.
