The book under review was published by J. M. Dent, London and E. P. Dutton, N.Y. 1920 edition, 245 pages. It is similar, but different from other editions.

The Essence of Mysticism and other Essays is a compilation of essays originally written for various journals. These essays were revised or completely re-written by Evelyn Underhill and published in 1920. As is well known she was a defender of the great Western mystics whose role was to "mediate between the transcendent and his fellow-men." (p65 in the chapter, The mystic as creative artist). The substance and style follow the form in her landmark book Mysticism published in 1911. These essays are an extension of that work dealing with the theory and practice of mysticism and the lives and works of mystics such as Plotinus, Julian of Norwich and contemporaries such as a pious Frenchman Charles Peguy who was killed in the Great War, September 5, 1914.

These essays were written before the author came under the tutelage of Friedrich von Hugel and before her full conversion to the Anglican Church. Depending on your point of view this book shows her thinking more liberal or dangerously close to heresy. No index, no reading list, no illustrations or photos.

A collection of nine essays on mystics from Plotinus (the last great philosopher of antiquity) to Charles Péguy who died in the First World War that was published in 1920. The essays are not consistent, having been written over many years and collected here. She recognizes the importance of Plotinus who had a tremendouns impact on early Christian belief and Christian mysticism over a much greater period of time, through the agency of St. Augustine. Augustine, in turn discovered Plotinus throigh the translation by Victorinus from Plotinus' crabbed Greek into Latin. Like all Christian commentators on Plotinus,who founded NeoPlatonism, she cannot help scolding Plotinus for not being a Christian.
It is difficult for her to get all the mystics, from orthodox Jews, the Sufi,the Christains and the NeoPlatonists under one tent, so she is clearly tempted by the "somewhat heretical" teaching of John Erigena that there is a "supersubstantial God " above the Trinity. She has an annoying habit of quoting the writings of her subjects in the original Italian/French/Latin.
Despite being somewhat confused and confusing, Underhill's book is important in any attempt to understand the phenomenon of mysticism. Mystical phenomena are, after all, the only experimental evidence we have for the existence of God.
It should not be necessary to point out that mysticism, in motu proprio, has nothing to do with "The New Age. "

this classic in the field of spiritual experiance came into my possession twenty-five years ago and has been a continual companion on my path. in my estimation this is priceless book and i'm overjoyed to find it reprinted. my suggestion to anyone that is fortunate to read it is to look again at LIGHT as the underlying theme of the book. you will be rewarded!
