Tales: Mesmeric Revelation



(originally published August 1844 in Columbia Magazine)

A dying man is put under hypnosis in a last attempt to glean insights of the afterlife and to remove his skepticism about the immortality of his soul. The result is a difficult and metaphysical, but beautifully written, interview between the man and his hypnotizer, and a revelation which may not reside exactly where you would expect.


Summary written by Taylor Colegrove, May 2011. Title links to the full text of the story.
