When Margaret Flinsch was about the age of seventeen, she heard an early draft of "Beelzebub's Tales" read at the home of friends. It made such a deep impression on her that she felt impelled to travel to France to meet its author. She was later a major figure in the Gurdjieff Foundation of New York and a well-known participant in experimental childhood education. This recording was finished and published in her 101st year. She was one of those who worked on the revised translation of "Beelzebub's Tales," which she reads from in this recording. Gurdjieff states that his book is designed to reach both the conscious and the subconscious mind. Margaret Flinsch has said that for her, the way to the subconscious mind is through listening.
