VICTOR HUGO'S CONVERSATIONS WITH THE SPIRIT WORLD

JOHN CHAMBERS    Book Number: 83041    Product format: Hardback

'Remember that it was after these experiences that Hugo wrote his remarkable Les Misérables.' During Victor Hugo's exile on the isle of Jersey, where he and his family and friends escaped the reign of Napoleon III, he conducted 'table-tapping' séances, transcribing hundreds of channelled conversations with discarnate visitors like Shakespeare, Plato, Hannibal, Rousseau, Galileo, Sir Walter Scott and Jesus. According to the transcripts, Jesus, during his three visits, condemns Druidism, faults Christianity and suggests a new religion with Hugo as its prophet. To the sceptics some of the 'conversations' seem self-serving, but author John Chambers places these experiments firmly in the tradition of visionary literature and psychic exploration. He aligns those experiences with the poetry of William Blake, the table-tapping experiences of the Fox sisters, and the channelled writings of the great modern day poet James Merrill whose spirits' utterances uncannily resemble those of Hugo's. The transcripts are the missing link between the early 19th century's fascination with the cabalistic Zohar reincarnation and the writings of the Illuminati and the rise of Spiritualism and the societies for the study for psychic phenomena in the later 19th and early 20th centuries.
