Bulwer-Lytton: Occult Personality - John S. Moore
Edward Bulwer, Lord Lytton (1788-1824) was a best-selling novelist and a central figure in the esoteric world of the nineteenth-century. In Bulwer-Lytton: Occult Personality - A Graphic Introduction, John S. Moore places the writings and achievements of this ninteenth-century magus into historical context, exploring the influences on his works, and how those works - such as his novels Zanoni and The Coming Race, shaped esoteric thought. Employing a wealth of diverse illustrative styles, this book offers a new perspective on the Victorian world and its occult undercurrents, and shows how Bulwer-Lytton's lasting influence continues to this day.
