"Detailing a hitherto unknown period in the life of one of the twentieth century's preeminent intellectuals, The Portugal Journal was written by Mircea Eliade from 1941-1945, when he served as a diplomat in Lisbon. Eliade's work as a theorist of religion has been the chief influence on how religion is understood and studied in contemporary times, and he is also increasingly well known as a writer of fiction and drama." "The Portugal Journal is the only one of Eliade's journals to be published in its entirety, unedited by its author. Here, Eliade writes frankly, at times about things that he could never bring himself to make public, including his relationship with the Iron Guard, his problems with hypersexuality, his religious beliefs and actions, his admiration for Rene Guenon, and his sufferings and terrible grief both before and after his wife's death."--Jacket.
