AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The Body of His Desire was advertised in May 1912 with the following — perhaps dubious — enticements: ‘The plot is extraordinary. The theme is the psychic conflict in the soul of a popular preacher, who materializes out of his own vital essence the spirit of one whom he has loved and forsaken in an earlier incarnation.'
