Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Because of the apparent accuracy of many of his prophecies, spiritual seekers continue to be fascinated with the life and work of the 16th-century mystic and alchemist, Nostradamus. Hogue, an established Nostradamus scholar (Nostradamus and the Millennium), presents the most complete rendering of the prophecies we have to date. In the opening section, he traces the prophetic lineage of Nostradamus and provides a key to interpreting the uncanny visions. He then proceeds to explore, in commentary form, the prophecies and their fulfillment from the French Revolution to the present. Nostradamus's quatrains are read as predictions of the AIDS pandemic, the ecological crisis and the spiritual malaise and hunger within contemporary culture. Hogue's interpretations often stretch the reader's credulity, for he makes the common mistake of reading prophecy as eschatology. Still, the advent of the new millennium assures that many seeeking spiritual harmony and unity will turn to Nostradamus for direction. 300 color illustrations not seen by PW. (Oct.)
From Barnes & Noble
The author reviews the life and times of Michel de Nostradame, the most famous seer in history, and re-examines his prophecies, scrutinizing many previous interpretations and including new revelations previously considered "too hot to handle." Among the world-renowned predictions prophesied by Nostradamus and re-studied in this book are such recent events of history as the Stock Market Crash of 1929, World War II, the Kennedy assassination conspiracies, the end of the Cold War, the death of Pope John Paul I; and future predictions of nuclear terrorism, global warming, and hopes for a new millennium of peace. 8" x 10 1/2".

    A missed opportunity?

    John Hogue's new biography of Nostradamus is better than I expected - but not much. As a literary biography, it is much more literary than it is a biography. The 16th century French prophet's cultural and historical background is indeed extensively and lovingly described, but the rest of the book seems merely to consist of huge clouds of elaborate, typically Hoguean speculations about Nostradamus - 'he may have', 'he could have', 'perhaps', 'we can imagine that', 'it is possible that' - interspersed with relatively brief factual extracts from the seer's known life-story. Hogue (a self-confessed 'rogue scholar' - p. 124) starts his book by rubbishing the purely factual approach. It is a wise precaution. For, despite his frequent professions of scepticism, various of the usual hoary myths and Old Wives' Tales - the famous stories of the Wrong Pig, the Surprised Future Pope, the Lost Dog - are duly trotted out, as are the fake Prophecies of Orval. Hogue doesn't actually insist that they are all true. In fact he describes them as 'apocryphal'. But we are still left with the distinct impression that we really ought to take such undocumented later inventions seriously, or at least to consider them as possibilities. Otherwise why mention them in the first place? As a result, the newcomer to the subject is left not really knowing what to take as fact and what as fiction. And then there are his translations. I don't know where Hogue learned his French, but several of his most recent original translations of Nostradamus's prose in particular just don't correspond to any edition of the French originals that I have ever seen. Whole chunks are omitted without acknowledgement, whole sentences at best paraphrased and at worst misparaphrased. As for his translations of the prophetic verses, most of these are frankly grotesque, and some are not even in comprehensible English. Which leaves, I'm afraid, all the other fallacies and factual errors in the book. Here are just a few of the more obvious ones: · Nostradamus's secretary Chavigny (who wasn't mayor of Beaune - even though I, too, have made that error in the past) didn't start work in 1554 (pp. xv, 162, 165): contemporary documents make it perfectly clear that he didn't arrive until 1561. · No contemporary evidence, least of all in his own writings, suggests that Nostradamus ever supported the ideas of Copernicus (p.27). · There is no evidence whatever that his known expulsion from the Medical Faculty at Montpellier for having been an apothecary occurred before his enrolment for courses: in fact, the entry is undated (p.57). · Nostredame (as he then was) cannot have been lectured in anatomy by 'Dr.' Guillaume Rondelet (p.58), because the latter, a mere fellow-student of his, enrolled in the self-same year (1529) and didn't gain his doctorate until 1537, long after Nostredame had left. · He didn't Latinise his name from 'Nostredame' to 'Nostradamus' (p.63) at the time of his lavishly-described doctorate ceremony (of which absolutely no record in fact exists): it occurs for the first known time on his Almanac of 1550. · There is no contemporary record that he was ever a member of the Montpellier medical faculty (pp. 64, 67). · It is surely stretching it a bit to call Nostradamus's quoted prescription of no food at all for plague-suffers a diet 'sparing in fatty meats' (pp. 97, 370)! · Hogue praises Nostredame for 'healing so many people' during the plague-outbreak at Aix (p.106), despite quoting the Frenchman's own words to the effect that none of his cures worked 'any more than nothing at all' (p.101). In the same passage, Nostredame points out that bleeding was indeed tried, despite Hogue's resistance to the idea. And he certainly didn't say that his rose-pills worked 'for a month' - merely that they preserved 'un monde' (a whole lot of people). · Nobody in 1559 read verse I.35 as forecasting the death of King Henri II (p.181), and neither Nostradamus nor his adoring secre
