Reading it after publication, he believed Mary Anne had revealed many hermetic secrets that were better left unpublished, and therefore bought up the remaining stock and, with myshery daughter, burnt them, along with the unfinished manuscript of his poem.
Only a few copies of the book survived. Ms Atwood published nothing after A Suggestive Inquiry. Walter Leslie Wilmshurst, in his introduction to the reissue, laments that the thoughts of her later years did not find fruition in another work.
He claims, however, that there is much to be found in her papers, of which he was then in possession.

Liber et placet et non placet. Scriptrix eruditissima, attamen nimis suae aetatis. Credit veteribus mythis, erroresque antiquos dictitat, quos ego, qui aegypticos libros aegyptice lego, falsum esse novi.
Veritatem ab origine accipit, sicut enim illi viatores indubii, quos crebro citat. Nam, Corpus illud Hermeticum amo, atque opera alchemica posterioris Medii Aevi me delectant, attamen lectione skepsin non sepono. Inest sapientia, et mysteria sunt saepe pulchra, saltem ut poiesis. At non credo quo Liber et placet et non placet.
At non credo quod oblectat.
Agnosco quoque styli victoriani et repetitionis immodicae thr taedere. Ferme item mihi tolerantia neo-platonismi ocius evanescit. Fontibus permultis auctrix utitur, e quibus locos copiose transfert. Liber bibliographia eget, attamen suggeetive commentariis in ima pagina facile bibliographiam propriam condere potes.

The subject is esoteric. The author doesn’t want you to understand it. That is, the Mysteries are meant to be held secret by the initiated. This is the only book I’ve found that has a description of the initiation process of the ancient mystery cults, although the description is cloaked in metaphor.
I suspect you’ll need to be extremely interested in the ancient mystery cults or Hermeticism or alchemy to read thi This book is difficult for three reasons: I suspect you’ll need to ijquiry extremely interested in the ancient mystery cults or Hermeticism or alchemy to read this cover to cover and it helps to know the basics of neo-Platonism.

I took months to crawl through paragraph by paragraph, because as soon as I managed to understand a page I’d stop to contemplate. Reading it took me longer than an initiate took to get initiated! Here are two quotes from the text. The first, I think, is the theme of the book and of Hermeticism. The second quote, when you understand the meaning, is the key herketic the process.
