Summary

This book argues that Walter Pater and Algernon Swinburne draw upon the legacy of Romantic Hellenism in order to explore the possibilities of a secular model of enchantment and to complicate the common Victorian assumption that secularisation was a story about rationality, disillusionment, and loss.
