The ascending cycle /
George William Russell (A.E.)
|Main Creator:||Russell, George William, 1867-1935|
The Ascending Cycle contains twenty-two essays and stories by George William Russell, whose pen name was "A.E." Russell was a prime mover of the Irish renaissance in literature and a lasting influence on writers like W. B. Yeats. A man of profound conviction and spiritual insight, Russell discerned invisible dimensions in every facet of life. He intimated his own mystical experiences and showed that each individual could lift the veil of preconception and inattention that hides a deeper awareness of the significance of suggestive patterns in nature and everyday events. .... Russell's mystical writings shed light on his artistic and humanitarian endeavours and also testify to his timeless relevance as a seminal thinker and visionary. - Introduction.
