The Shining Gateway

The Shining Gateway can be seen as a prose commentary by James Allen on the experience of the pilgrimage described his dramatic poem “Eolaus”. In search of enlightenment, the restless pilgrim, after having exhausted the delights of material creation, finally submits himself to the instruction of a reclusive sage. In a tactfully presented dismissal of the need for dependence by the seeker on the external artefacts of organized religion, the author leaves the listener – as the sage leaves Eolaus – to achieve emancipation by heroic introspection.
