Subject: more electricity

I would like to mention another book that deals with the implications of electricity in literature that may be of help in understanding Pale Fire.

Maria Tatar's Spellbound: Studies on Mesmerism and Literature has one chapter that may be of especial interest: "Salvation by Electricity: Science, Poetry and Naturphilosophie."
