I do not know whether Maeterlinck was a member of any
theosophical society or not, but it is generally assumed that he
had "theosophical leanings." Give me a little time and I may find
out some facts.
In Maeterlinck's book _Our Eternity_ (New York : Dodd, Maed,
1914) there is a chapter entitled "The theosophical hypothesis"
(p. 71-78), in which he cites Annie Besant. [BTW, the book is
NOT available for loan from the Olcott Library.]
