Read full description of the books The Unknowable Gurdjieff:
From Chapter One of The Unknowable Gurdjieff:
"In this book I shall write of what he said when I was there to hear him say it; of what he taught us, how he taught it, and what effect it had not only upon me but upon my friends, since each of us experienced it differently, and each of us has written of it in her own way.
Such a book is far from being a study, a portrait, a treatise, a manual or a document. I should like it to be a sort of primer. The most I hope to accomplish is an evocation; the least, a rectification which will prevent anyone from ever again having the hardihood to call Gurdjieff an imposter. I would call this accomplishing a great deal."
In the Unknowable Gurdjieff, Margaret Anderson recounts the time she spent as a part of The Rope, one of the most fascinating of Gurdjieff's work groups. After meeting with GIG, members of The Rope would rush off to makes notes of that day's meetings. Anderson does a good job with a tough subject: although there was method to Gurdjieff's teaching, he touched on all and everything, bringing into the mix diverse cultures, religions, and languages. Hers was a heady task, indeed.
Read information about the authorMargaret Caroline Anderson (November 24, 1886 – October 18, 1973) was the American founder, editor and publisher of the art and literary magazine The Little Review, which published a collection of modern American, English and Irish writers between 1914 and 1929. The periodical is most noted for introducing many prominent American and British writers of the 20th century, such as Ezra Pound and T. S. Eliot in the United States, and publishing the first thirteen chapters of James Joyce's then-unpublished novel, Ulysses.
A large collection of her papers on Gurdjieff's teaching is now preserved at Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, Yale University.
