THE OCCULT NOVELS OF BULWER-LYTTON: “These novels, especially Zanoni, are quoted by H. P. Blavatsky as expressing in beautiful and dramatic form the teachings which she herself was expounding; and this fact alone will be for Theosophists a testimonial to their merits, if such be wanted. But Theosophists of today probably do not realize how much Bulwer-Lytton’s books meant to some Theosophists whose experience, like that of the present writer, dates back more than half a century, to a time when occult books were few and far between, and the atmosphere of satisfied scientific materialism reigned more unchallenged than it does today. Zanoni and Mejnour lived in the mind as almost solid realities, and the sublime passages in which their thoughts were expressed dwelt in memory as a daily companion.”—H. T. Edge
