A Gentleman’s Joyous Esotericism
Jean Sendy Above and Beyond the “Ancient Aliens”
The article reconstructs the narratives advanced by the author Jean Sendy (1910–1978). His life is reconstructed as well. It is argued that Sendy was a cultivated, sophisticated, and ironic author; deeply different, by virtue of his books’ quality, from other proponents of the “ancient aliens” narratives, with whom he is often grouped.
