Late-Victorian Paganism: the case of the Pagan Review

Abstract : This article discusses the sole issue of the Pagan Review (1892) single-handedly authored by William Sharp under various pen names. Sharp was a poet, literary critic and novelist who began publishing under the pen name of Fiona MacLeod in 1894. Penned down in an astonishingly brief time when Sharp was experiencing a deep personal change, The Pagan Review also manifests late-nineteenth-century religious and literary change as can be seen in its search for a new subjectivity. Sharp’s pagans claim gender equality, and express both cultural cosmopolitanism and a peculiar form of syncretism.
