9780140039474: Mount Analogue: A Novel of Symbolically Authentic Non-Euclidian Adventures in Mountain Climbing (The Penguin metaphysical library)

In this novel/allegory the narrator/author sets sail in the yacht Impossible to search for Mount Analogue, the geographically located, albeit hidden, peak that reaches inexorably toward heaven.

Daumal's symbolic mountain represents a way to truth that "cannot not exist," and his classic allegory of man's search for himself embraces the certainty that one can know and conquer one's own reality.
