From the Booker Prize-winning author of Possession: A Romance (1990), On The Conjugial Angel is the latest book in the Swedenborg Society’s Archive Series. A S Byatt, alongside a series of readings from her novella ‘The Conjugial Angel’, explores Swedenborg’s influence on literature, the lives of the Tennysons and the conflict between religion and science. Also including an intimate insight into Dame Byatt’s writing process and lifelong interest in literature, On The Conjugial Angel is drawn from the transcript of a talk and Q&A given at Swedenborg House in 2010 for the bicentenary of the Society.
