In The Presence Of Mystery
Modernist Fiction And The Occult
de Howard M. Fraser
Sobre o livro
Explores manifestations of the occult in modernist Hispanic short fiction, particularly that of Manuel Gutierrez Najera, Ruben Dario, and Leopoldo Lugones. The fascination of these modernist writers with such areas as alchemy, theosophy, and the supernatural expressed not only a residual Romantic literary sensibility but also the influence of numerous spiritualist movements around the world.
