Uploader's note -- This up was inspired by pullybone's upload of the 1931 typescript of Beelzebub's Tales. When I first engaged with Fourth Way ideas (decades ago, in my less lazy days), perhaps I was biased toward Bennett as the most reliable and interesting of Gurdjieff's direct students, and perhaps I still am. That admitted, this was by far my most revered secondary source for Beelzebub's Tales To His Grandson. There's no way I would have stayed so engaged with that book (I've read it more than 4 times, and that in the first Dutton edition, which was an earlier translation than what the Foundation made available in the 1980s). So at least I got through it more than the 3 recommended as a minimum in the text itself. But I don't know if I'd have even looked at it a second time without this little gem. So just that. If you're interested in reading Gurdjieff's own writing, this IS a gem.
From the back flap:
When Bennett first read All and Everything/Beelzebub's Tales to His Grandson in 1948, he was convinced that it would have a powerful impact on all who came across it. He regarded it as a work of superhuman genius, containing expressions of reality which, by their very nature, were bound to make severe demands on any reader. With Gurdjieff's approval he undertook a series of lectures in London between 1949 and 1974, focusing on the essential meaning of Beelzebub's Tales. Those talks have been collected here.
Bennett doesn't just explain Gurdjieff's compelling language and ideas; he encourages readers to create meaning for themselves through their work and spiritual growth. He gives students the spade so they can do their own digging. Gurdjieff's work is a treatise on psychology, history, cosmology, ecology, sociology, art, science, religion --- and much that is unclassifiable. Talks on Beelzebub's Tales presents a key to help us unlock and understand the mysteries of our selves.
