Beginning with Washington IrvingĀ¹s introduction of the gothic sensibility in the form of the ghost story, and following through the century to investigations of the unconscious in the works of Henry James and Jack London, this collection reveals the use of the occult in fiction as a metaphor for a culture bubbling with attempts -- mesmerism, Adventism, transcendentalism, Swedenborgianism, and spiritualism, among many -- to understand natureĀ¹s complex and obscure patterns.n/a is the author of 'The Haunted Dusk: American Supernatural Fiction, 1820-1920', published 1983 under ISBN 9780788168383 and ISBN 078816838X.
