Gurdjieff and Orage: Brothers in Elysium

by Paul Beekman Taylor

This book is interesting, maddening, and ultimately disappointing as I think the author completely misses the point. The back cover says the book is "informed by both rigorous scholarship and his own relationship with Gurdjieff." In my opinion, his relationship with Gurdjieff and the work cannot be terribly deep given the analysis he provides of the relationship between the two men.

Alfred Richard Orage was a prominent literary critic and editor of the highly influential review "The New Age" whose contributors included Ezra Pound, G.B. Shaw, and Katherine Mansfield. It covered not only literature and poetry, but also economics, a discipline that would preoccupy Orage until his untimely death in 1934.

Before meeting Gurdjieff, he had written for the theosophical review and had a keen interest in esoteric matters. Orage was one of the most influential men in England at the time, although he was not well-known. His influence came from his relations with the people he knew, who were themselves famous.

After hearing Gudjieff in London, Orage gave up his literary life and went to Le Prieuré in France, home of Gurdjieff's Institute for the Harmonious Development of Man, where he dug ditches, got calluses on his hands, and worked to see a glimpse of the personality he called "Orage". A year later, Gurdjieff sent him to New York before Gurdjieff and his dance troop arrived in order to prepare the terrain for G's first visit to the United States. Orage spent the next seven years in New York as the leader of the Gurdjieff groups there.

Outstanding review of A.R. Orage life and endeavours! This research by Mr. BeekmanTaylor (a first-hand witness) shreds light over both Orage and Gurdjieff and several people of their immediate circle. A truly insightful book that I highly recommed for any serious seeker. I am very happy about this purchase. I hope to soon read other works by Mr. Beekman Taylor.
