David Myatt - Collected Works

The following works, currently (2017) available as printed books, represent those writings of mine which may, just may in my fallible opinion, have some worth. The texts included in these published works were mostly written in 2012-2013; the exceptions being my Greek translations, some poetry, and some letters written between 2006 and 2011.

As far as I am concerned the rest of my writings, spanning some four decades, are either (i) hubriatic/tending toward hubris, or, as in the case of post-2011 material, (ii) can and should be forgotten, being only transitory scribblings.

Furthermore, all pre-2011 writings, save for (i) the translations and the poetry listed below, and some private letters written between 2002 and 2011, or (ii) included in the other works listed below, are disowned and rejected by me.


N.B. All the books (with the exception of the Poemandres and An Esoteric Mythos) are 11 inches x 8.5 inches in format, which is somewhat larger than the conventional 'trade paperback'. The Poemandres is 6 inches by 9 inches in format, being a standard book size version of the previously published large format Mercvrii Trismegisti Pymander.
