Book Short Summary:

Alchemy is the art of transformation. At its simplest, the alchemist turns base metals into gold. However, this is only one dimension of alchemy—at a more sophisticated level the alchemist's "base metal" is symbolic of himself that needs to be worked upon and the "gold" produced is the alchemist himself in his or her quest to perfect his own nature. In short, true alchemy is a discipline involving physical, psychological and spiritual work aimed at producing wholeness and enlightenment. From the origins of alchemy, both reputed and documented, Cherry Gilchrist's lively and sympathetic narrative takes the reader from the alchemical interests of the ancient Egyptians to the flowering of alchemy in the 17th century. She also elucidates the complexities of alchemical symbolism and examines the ways in which alchemy has developed in the 20th century.

Book Short Summary:

Unlike most other studies of alchemy and literature, which focus on alchemical imagery in poetry of specific periods or writers, this book traces the figure of the alchemist in Western literature from its first appearance in the Eighth Circle of Dante's Inferno down to the present. From the beginning alchemy has had two aspects: exoteric or operative (the transmutation of baser metals into gold) and esoteric or speculative (the spiritual transformation of the alchemist himself). From Dante to Ben Jonson, during the centuries when the belief in exoteric alchemy was still strong and exploited by many charlatans to deceive the gullible, writers in major works of many literatures treated alchemists with ridicule in an effort to expose their tricks. From the Renaissance to the Enlightenment, as that belief weakened, the figure of the alchemist disappeared, even though Protestant poets in England and Germany were still fond of alchemical images. But when eighteenth-century science almost wholly undermined alchemy, the figure of the alchemist began to emerge again in literature—now as a humanitarian hero or as a spirit striving for sublimation. Following these esoteric romanticizations, as scholarly interest in alchemy intensified, writers were attracted to the figure of the alchemist and his quest for power. The fin-de-siecle saw a further transformation as poets saw in the alchemist a symbol for the poet per se and others, influenced by the prevailing spiritism, as a manifestation of the religious spirit. During the interwar years, as writers sought surrogates for the widespread loss of religious faith, esoteric alchemy underwent a pronounced revival, and many writers turned to the figure of the alchemist as a spiritual model or, in the case of Paracelsus in Germany, as a national figurehead. This tendency, theorized by C. G. Jung in several major studies, inspired after World War II a vast popularization of the figure in novels—historical, set in the present, or jux

Book Short Summary:

Man's new tools for the manipulation of genetic codes are pushing us in new directions. The story of two families unfolds as a new human species of infinite variety and strengths is born into the mid twenty-first century. After a vulnerable attempt at Washington politics, Alex Claiborne, long haunted by a violent and horrifying dream, becomes ensnared in a web of law enforcement and the court system. He and his family finally move to Brussels where his daughter, Laura, becomes involved in genetic research projects supported by the United Nations. Alex eventually uncovers the source of his nightmares with the help of a young psychiatrist. There is a delicate thread linking him to a conspiracy that includes genocide for profit. The Powell family has been part of the Washington elite for generations. Senator Powell and his family share, with his two longtime friends, an empire that extends across government and industry. They wield weapons of war and control genetic information gathered in schools, prisons, and hospitals for a generation. Manipulation of genetic codes and promises of immortality cause these opposing forces to collide, impacting not only their lives, but forcing the human race in unknown directions. It isn't evolution, slow and methodical, but revolution, immediate and profound.
