"Transmitted by oral tradition to initiates of the Middle Ages and of modern times, Noble Traveller is the secret name of initiates of antiquity. The last time that it was pronounced in public was on May 30, 1786, in Paris at a session of Parliament devoted to the cross-examination of a famous defendant, victim of a pamphleteer, Theveneau de Morande. Initiates’ wanderings did not differ from ordinary travels for study except that their itinerary, though apparently haphazard, rigorously coincided with the adept’s most secret aspirations and gifts." —O.V. de L. Milosz, "The Arcana," Exegetic Note, verse 46
Born in 1877, Oscar Vladislas de Lubicz Milosz was a mystical poet, metaphysician, dramatist, Biblical exegete, and novelist. His roots were Lithuanian and Jewish, whereas he was educated in France and wrote in French.
The Noble Traveller contains Milosz’s two main works of mystical philosophy, "Ars Magna" and "The Arcana." Also included: a generous selection of his poetry; an extensive chronology of his life; and photographs. This volume constitutes a complete introduction to this important literary, philosophical, and spiritual writer.

O. V. de L. Milosz (1877–1939) was a well-known Lithuanian diplomat in Paris after World War I and later became a French citizen. He wrote fiction, drama, and essays as well as collecting Lithuanian folk tales. He exerted a great influence on his younger cousin Czeslaw Milosz, who was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature in 1980. Largely neglected during his lifetime, Milosz has increasingly come to be considered as an important figure in French poetry and esoteric literature.Language Notes:
