Description

Since its first publication in 1992, David Rattray’s How I Became One of the Invisible has functioned as a kind of secret history and guidebook to a poetic and mystical tradition running through Western civilization from Pythagoras to In Nomine music to Hölderin to Antonin Artaud. Rattray not only excavated this tradition, he embodied and lived it. Fluent in most Western languages, as well as Sanskrit, Latin, and Greek, Rattray studied at Dartmouth, Harvard, and the Sorbonne, btu remained a poet, outside the academy. Eclipsed by the more mediagenic Beat writers during his own lifetime, Rattray’s work has become a powerful influence on many contemporary artists and writers.
