A Tale of Non-Euclidean and Symbolically Authentic Mountaineering AdventureseBook - 2004
"Rene Daumal's Mount Analogue is a twentieth-century classic, combining the author's poetic gifts and philosophical accomplishments. Among other things, this is an allegory for the journey of life, as well as a tale in which the narrator/author, one of an intrepid company of eight, sets sail in the yacht Impossible to search for Mount Analogue, the solid, geographically located, albeit hidden, peak that reaches inexorably towards heaven - as Mount Olympus reached to the home of the Greek gods, or Mount Sinai to the presence of Yahweh. Daumal, one of the greatest French writers of the twentieth century, died before the novel was completed, providing an uncanny one-way quality to the journey."--BOOK JACKET.
