This lavishly illustrated anthology of essays and poems treats the life, times, and influence of the 18th-century naturalist and mystic Emanuel Swedenborg. The editors have collected 51 recent essays by a wide assortment of noted scholars and writers, including Kathleen Raine and Czeslaw Milosz. Originally a mining engineer, Swedenborg was a polymath who became a seer and mystic, producing a large and influential body of theological writings that left lasting impressions on figures from Blake to Emerson to Frank Lloyd Wright. While the collection of essays lacks the depth and coherence of a unified treatment of Swedenborg's thought, its range gives some idea of the extensiveness of his influence on art, music, literature, architecture, psychology, and even city planning.
