Cornwell compares the works of Pfaffian Fitz-James O'Brien with those of Russian author Vladimir Odoevsky.
In his 1998 essay, Cornwell elaborates on the comparison of O'Brien and Odoevsky in his 1995 work.
Comparing the synopsis of O'Brien's "Seeing the World" to Odoevsky's "The Improvisor," Cornwell shows that not only do they share the same plot, but even the same character names.
