He opened the door to the arcane knowledge seized upon by such writers and poets as Ezra Pound, W. B. Yeats, Hermann Hesse, and Robert Duncan. His search for a universal theosophy led from the nineteenth-century occult revival to the flowering of esoteric ideas in modern culture. Besides promoting a wider public interest in Gnostic and Hermetic writings, his pioneering studies made an important contribution to the study of comparative religion. This volume of the Western Esoteric Masters Series combines a substantial biographical essay on G. R. S. Mead with an annotated anthology of his most important writings, giving the reader both a contextualizing overview and representative samples from Meads large body of work.
