QuotationI have heard of The Mirror of Simple Souls. It is attributed to Marguerite Porete, an unfortunate Beguine who was burned for some very innocent statements. I would like to get to know this book. Which is the new Penguin version of the Cloud? I have read one that was printed in America by a man called Progoff. If this is not the one that has been put out by Penguin, I should be delighted to see it.
