Peter Ibbetson by George Du Maurier( Book )

17 editions published between 1919 and 1977 in English and held by 494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peter Ibbetson is a romantic novel from the late Victorian era - poignant, melancholic and deeply nostalgic, with a paranormal twist. The plot makes use of the idea of a shared lucid dream in bringing together lovers who are otherwise separated in waking reality, by class and circumstance. Although a powerful love story, it also makes for a fascinating speculative exploration of the nature of human consciousness and the meaning and "true" nature of life. -- review by Michael Graeme (
