Yeats and Alchemy (January 1996)
William T. Gorski - Author

This book traces the development of alchemical discourse in the work of W. B. Yeats.

Gorski considers the themes of transformation, apocalypse, and futurity in relation to Yeats' alchemical representations of the 1890s. He uncovers Yeats' postmodern trajectory--to reconstitute the body, history, and material contingency which Yeats...(Read More)

The Stop
The Stop (May 1995)

Theosophical Enlightenment
Theosophical Enlightenment (November 1994)
Joscelyn Godwin - Author

This is an intellectual history of occult and esoteric currents in the English-speaking world from the early Romantic period to the early twentieth century. The Theosophical Society, founded in 1875 by Helena P. Blavatsky, holds a crucial position as the place where all these currents temporarily united, before again diverging. The book's ambiguous title points to the author's thesis that Theosophy owed as much to the skeptical Enlightenment of th...(Read More)
