Beschreibung

The author explores the profound influence the mesmerist and spiritualist "craze" of the 1840s and 1850s had on Hawthorne's artistic vision and fictional techniques. Despite abhorring the "pseudosciences" as incarnations of witchcraft, their effect on the creation of his romances can be traced.
