High quality hand bound cloth edition from Two Rivers Farm. Edited by C.S. Nott. With an Introduction by AL Staveley.
Very few have, or could have, the temerity to attempt making a commentary on All And Everything: Beelzebub’s Tales to His Grandson by George Ivanovitch Gurdjieff. Of the handful who have done so or might do so in the future, Orage was surely the best qualified. It is odd this his “Commentary” goes almost unregarded although it is the nearest in time, and perhaps in personal understanding also, to the author. It has lain buried in C. S. Nott’s Teachings of Gurdjieff published in 1961.
If you are truly interested in “All and Everything” you will surely find these commentaries very helpful and will be pleased to be reminded of them. But even if your interest is only minimal and you are one of those who think Gurdjieff’s book is “out-of-date”, read it all the same. You may sense the magnetism of Orage’s own interest coming down the years and be able to take a further step in understanding.
