Morpho Eugenia -- The conjugial angel.
Like A.S. Byatt's Booker Prize-winning novel, Possession, these two mesmerising novellas are set in the nineteenth century. In 'Morpho Eugenia', an explorer realises that the behaviour of the people around him is alarmingly similar to that of the insects he studies. In 'The Conjugal Angel', curious individuals - some fictional, others drawn from history - gather to connect with the spirit world. Throughout both, Byatt examines the eccentricities of the Victorian era, weaving fact and fiction, reality and romance, science and faith into a sumptuous, magical tapestry.
