Spirite is one of Gautier's major prose works, yet one of his most neglected. It is the tale of a woman who dies before the man she loves even notices she exists. There follows a sometimes thrilling, sometimes touching story of interaction between the spirit world and reality. It is a mystical masterpiece.
" Posterity will judge him to be one of the masters of writing, not only in France but in Europe." Charles Baudelaire
