In the East My Pleasure Lies: An Esoteric Interpretation of Some Plays of Shakespeare (New)
by Pogson, Beryl
Publisher: Eureka Editions
Book ID: 9789072395207, 9072395204
In this age of mass entertainment many people look to the theatre as a means of self-forgetfulness. Yet tradition tells us that the Drama was originally conceived to re-awaken in Man the memory of the purpose for which he was created. It revealed to him in allegory his relationship with the gods and sought to arouse him from the sleep of the senses, so that he might set forth on the journey towards his divine destiny.
Scholars and critics argue about the source of the plays, their authorship, their chronological order, the authenticity of the text, the technicalities of the verse, even the beauty of the language, but few enquire whether the plays contain an inner meaning.
In this book, Mrs. Pogson shows that Shakespeare wrote in the true tradition of Drama, using his art consciously with the aim of freeing Man from the illusions that hypnotize and distract him, so that he might have a clearer vision of the path of self-development to which all the Great Religions direct him.

The Voynich Manuscript
Yale University Press
Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...More
