Cloud of Unknowing

James Bradley’s new translation, from the Middle English, of the medieval mystical text The Cloud of Unknowing is now available as a chapbook from Hexagon Press.

Written anonymously in England in the 14th century, and never meant for public consumption, The Cloud of Unknowing consists of a series of spiritual instructions and teachings intended to aid and guide the novice onto the path of what one might call “conceptual negation,” in which mystical union with God becomes possible once the fetters of the material world have been cast off by the mind.

This new translation of The Cloud of Unknowing offers a poet’s take on this enigmatic classic of Western spirituality.
