Literature in an Esoteric Key
Review (Published version)
MetadataShow full item record
The twenty essays of the volume, as diverse as the field itself, testify, from different perspectives, that the reception of esotericism in literature and arts largely overlaps with the shift of influences as formulated by classical literary history. Furthermore, they show that the migration of esoteric ideas through different areas of culture found a most fertile ground in Central and Eastern Europe, proving thus that the editor’s concern, expressed in the introduction, that this particular spatial framework might not be appropriate, was not founded.
