Telepathy and Literature

(1991)
A non fiction book by

 
 
This book asks how telepathy relates to literature. It asks how their interlinking might affect the discourses of literary criticism and theory. Royle examines what the term "telepathy" meant to Freud, and the ways in which the concept has been applied in the works of Nicolas Abraham, Maria Torok and Jacques Derrida. He argues that the phenomenon of characterization presupposes telepathy. Among the authors considered are Jane Austen, Emily Bronte, Virginia Woolf, George Eliot, Shakespeare, Wordsworth, Coleridge and Raymond Chandler.
