The Mystery (Hardback)
Language: English . Brand New Book. In The Mystery , finished in 1951 but never before published, H.D. tells a tale of love, intrigue, and religious redemption. Drawn from her notes to her memoir, The Gift , the novel imaginatively re-creates the history of her mother s Moravian Church, Unitas Fratrum, and its leader, Count Zinzendorf, from which she believed she had inherited a psychic gift . This gift enables her to reenvision her inheritance. The Moravian cousins, Elizabeth de Watteville and Henry Dohna, Zinzendorf s grandchildren, travel to Prague in winter 1788, on the eve of the French Revolution. There they meet Count Louis Saint-Germain, a magician and counterrevolutionary plotter, whose life changes as he joins their search to find Zinzendorf s lost Plan for world unity without war . A hybrid novel combining modernist stream-of-consciousness and medieval legend, The Mystery completes H.D. s cycle of romances following The Sword Went Out to Sea and White Rose and the Red. It reveals her feminist theology and writes finis to her obsession with spiritualism. Jane Augustine s introduction and extensive notes provide a significantly enlarged view of H.D. s religious thinking. N° de réf. du libraire AAN9780813034041
