20 books inspired by Swedenborg

Swedenborg’s influence on the history of Western literature has been immense. References can be found as far afield as Blake’s Jerusalem, A S Byatt’s Angels and Insects, Borges’ The Total Library, Balzac’s Louis Lambert and Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes. His name is even mentioned in the works of Jules Verne, Daphne du Maurier, Rudyard Kipling, Charles Dickens and Hans Christian Anderson!

In anticipation of a forthcoming book on Swedenborg (coming out in October), here is a brief taster of key books inspired by Swedenborg. Many of the titles will be known, but others (hopefully) will still offer something of a surprise.
