By A Customer on May 5, 1998
Format: Library Binding
This remarkable little book was written in 1976, before Jane's physical challenges fully manifested. It shows a life lived to the fullest, and raises questions about what creativity is, where inspiration comes from, and what we leave behind when our "earth lives" are finished. The "Cezanne" material, "dictated" to Jane, is must reading for visual artists and for anyone interested in painting. It's especially significant as Jane had absolutely no background in art, although she was married to a painter. Where did this material come from? Did Jane make it all up? How could she? What is creativity? Is she "channeling" the "real" Cezanne? What does that mean? Really, quite an extraordinary read.

I had an original copy of this book 30 years ago, when it first came out (I think it was in 1977 or 1978) - at the time, I was living in Berkley, California and read about 1/3 of the book and put it down.

I liked it then but lost interest.

However, I decided, for my own reasons, to read it again, and bought a copy less than a month ago and am almost done and I have to say that I believe this book is really a channelled view of what Paul Cezanne thought about while he painted.

I think it's fair to say that Cezanne, himself, might not have talked nearly as much about his work as what's in the book - but the book is not Cezanne talking - it's his World View of paintings - and Jane Roberts, though some curious circumstance - happened to channel that World View.

I myself, as an artist who knows a lot about Paul Cezanne - am struck by the subtle insights that could not possibly have come from Jane Roberts.

But did it come from Paul Cezanne? In a sense, Yes. We can't really evaluate a book like this in the normal way - you have to pick it up and make sense of it yourself.

I for one, do recommend this book to artists interested in what Cezanne was actually thinking while he painted.

I'll be in Aix in a couple of days and will visit Paul Cezanne's studio and hopefully, what I read in this book will complement my trip.

Thank you for connecting me with the seller of this wonderful book by Jane Roberts. As an artist I am finding Cezanne's insights delightful and more than a little useful. Arrived promptly in like new condition.

Whatever your beliefs, the QUALITY of the Jane Roberts /Seth material cannot be denined. imo, No one could make this stuff up...it's too good and there is too much of it. Whenever I have a phychic experience, and we all have them, I reach for a Seth book and it makes perfect sense. We do indeed create our world...update: Now that I read this book, I say it's a MUST for any painter. Wonderful insights!

I'd probably like it better if I were more of an artist. I'm only a hobbyist in art. But for a true artist and especially one who studies impressionism it's a very refreshing look into the mind of Cezanne.
