About this book

Using a wide range of unexplored archival material, this book examines the 'spectral' influence of Victorian spiritualism and Psychical Research on women's writing, analyzing the ways in which modern writers have both subverted and mimicked nineteenth century sources in their evocation of the séance.

Reviews

'Spiritualism and Women's Writing is a thought-provoking book...Clearly, a huge amount of research has gone into this book. It is well written with lots of signposting, and offers some original and interesting readings. For me, it emphasizes how fluid history is, and how important the written word is in recording, and re-recording, these histories.' -Lucy Le-Guilcher, Women: a Cultural Review
