Synopsis
 

Publisher Marketing: Shadows of Heaven traces the relations between the American poet-novelist Nathan Jean Toomer and the Armenian Greek savant and teacher Georgii Ivanovich Gurdjieff, from 1924 until Gurdjieff's death in 1949, as well as each man's relationship with Edith Annesley Taylor and her son Paul, the author of this book. Edith loved Toomer and bore Gurdjieff's daughter. Edith's son, who lived as a young child with his sister at Gurdjieff's Institute for the Harmonious Development of Man at Avon near Fountainebleau, was adopted into Toomer's household in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, before studying with Gurdjieff in 1948 and 1949.
