Reseña del editor:

Lembert holds that the return of the theme of alchemy in the literature of the late twentieth century mirrors the West's profound disillusionment in progress and in the perfectibility of human beings. She describes the relationship between alchemy and writing, starting by examining technical manuals on alchemy as texts, and shows how alchemy is a subject within art and music. She investigates novels such as Clarke's The Chymical Wedding, Ackroyd's The House of Doctor Dee, Rowling's first and fourth Harry Potter books, Morgan's Unnatural Fire, Matel's Field, Winterson's Gut Symmetries, Fowles's The Magus and Chatwin's Utz. Lembert also describes the history of alchemy and its most important transformational process, the opus magnum, and locations of source materials.
