Selected Letters of David Myatt
(pdf)

From the Introduction by JR Wright:

“Included in this volume are a selection of letters that David Myatt has written between the years 2002 and 2008, divided into two sections. These letters reveal a different side of his character – poet, Gnostic, Nature-loving mystic – to his more well known public personae, deriving as these public personae did from his political and religious peregrinations. It is in these letters that the “real” David Myatt speaks, shorn of his varied, and changing, public personae […]

It is my view that these letters are important for not only a correct understanding of Myatt himself, but also for understanding the development of his Numinous Way. Many of the later letters are intensely personal – and remarkably honest – and several deal with his feelings following the suicide, in May 2006, of his fiancée. It is also clear from many of these letters that, already by early 2002, he had begun to develop empathy and compassion as a basis for The Numinous Way and was quite aware of his own mistakes.”

The letters certainly, in my view, document some of the interior, spiritual, struggles that Myatt mentions in works such as his essay The Development of The Numinous Way and his autobiography Myngath
