Stephen Mitchell (b. 1943 in Brooklyn, New York) is a poet, translator, scholar, and anthologist. He is married to author Byron Katie. They live in Ojai, California.

Mitchell’s Selected Poetry of Rainer Maria Rilke has been called “the most beautiful group of poetic translations the twentieth century has produced.” William Arrowsmith said that his Sonnets to Orpheus “instantly makes every other rendering obsolete.” His Book of Job has been called “magnificent.” His bestselling Tao Te Ching, Bhagavad Gita, and Gilgamesh—which are not translations from the original text, but rather poetic interpretations that use existing translations into Western languages as their starting point—have also been highly praised by critics, scholars, and common readers.

Second Book of the Tao

By: |
Paperback Book

The great Masters left no precepts, no doctrines, no rules, no traditions, and their words self-destruct upon impact. They had no disciples, because there was nothing to bequeath. They were transparent to their own benevolence, and too kind to offer help. Like the Cheshire Cat, they had vanished down to their smile.
