Possessed Victorians: Extra Spheres in Nineteenth-century Mystical Writings

Передня обкладинка
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 2006 - 169 стор.
Drawing upon extensive archival work in the British Library, Sarah Willburn analyzes séance accounts, novels about mediumship, and metaphysical treatises to formulate a new conception of individualism that offers a fresh look at Victorian subjectivity. She presents the theories of compelling characters such as Newton Crosland and Lois Waisbrooker and provides exciting new readings of well-known texts by Charlotte Brontë, Eliot, Martineau, and Corelli.
