The Cloud of Unknowing,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Cloud of Unknowing and Other Works (Penguin Classics) (Paperback)
This modern version of "The Cloud of Unknowing" has made the work more intelligible to todays readers by replacing the archaic language of older versions whilst retaining the original sense. This has always been a challenging book to read and understand but I feel that this version has gone a long way towards providing the practical guidance that the original author intended for his readers. It is not an easy book, as instructional treatises go, but at least with this edition you are not confused by the mysteries of language.
