Selected Essays Of David Myatt
Edited by Rachael Stirling
Such Respectful Wordful Offerings As This
(Second Edition, pdf)
From the Editorial Preface
This compilation of essays arose out of some enquiries sent or forwarded to us following our re-publication of Some Questions For DWM 2017 and of Ms Stirling’s article – titled Swan Song Of A Mystic – commenting on those questions and answers. Included here are all of the Myatt texts enquired about, plus a few others for context including those 2017 ‘questions and answers’ and Swan Song Of A Mystic. We also include an essay – Self Dramatization, Sentimentalist, Or Chronicler Of Pathei Mathos? – which takes a critical look at Myatt’s post-2010 writings.
The title of the compilation is taken from Myatt’s translation of the Cantio Arcana of tractate XIII of the Corpus Hermeticum and which ‘Esoteric Song’ we include here.
