Between Method and Madness

Between Method and Madness - Stephen McNeilly

'Few writers over the last 250 years have done more to shape and underpin the hidden currents of modern Literature', writes Stephen McNeilly in the Introduction. 'It is possible to see his influence in the work of writers as diverse as William Blake, S T Coleridge, Honoré de Balzac, Charles Baudelaire, Paul Valéry, Walter Benjamin, George MacDonald, August Strindberg, Robert Browning and Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Coventry Patmore, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Oscar Milosz, W B Yeats, Jorge Luis Borges and Czeslaw Milosz. His name, more recently, has also re-emerged in the work of Italo Calvino, A S Byatt, Peter Ackroyd and Iain Sinclair'. Between Method and Madness is the 4th volume of the Journal of the Swedenborg Society and the second looking directly at Swedenborg's influence on Literature.

Writers discussed in this volume include Charles Baudelaire, E T A Hoffman, Edgar Allan Poe, Sheridan Le Fanu, Coventry Patmore and Oscar Milosz. It also includes seminal essays by W B Yeats and Arthur Conan Doyle.
