echoes : wb yeats, spiritualism & modernity

William Butler Yeats... "sought in the netherworld of the seance room not easy enlightenment, but a confirmation of his belief in the slipperiness of human consciousness, the precariousness of language, and the overwhelming complexity
of modern life."

Helen Sword: Ghostwriting Modernism, Ithaca: Cornell University Press, 2001
