The Mirror of Simple Souls is a hand made libretto for an experimental opera. Anne Carson wrote the poems or arias, and Kim Anno made the images. The story is about a medieval heretic name Marguerite Porete, who wrote an ecstatic text called The Mirror of Simple Souls. She advocated against church hierarchy, had followers, and was burned at the stake in Paris in 1310. This opera was also a live performance that was produced in San Francisco, New York, Toronto, and Ann Arbor, Michigan. The book was produced and printed at St. John’s University and the Minnesota Center for the Book in Minneapolis. The Book was printed and designed by book artist Mary Jo Pauly.

Marguerite Porete (died 1310) was a French mystic and the author of The Mirror of Simple Souls, a work of Christian spirituality dealing with the workings of Divine Love. She was burnt at the stake for heresy in Paris in 1310 after a lengthy trial, after refusing to remove her book from circulation or recant her views. The book is cited as one the primary texts of the medieval Heresy of the Free Spirit.

Published May 1, 2003, is the inaugural imprint of One Crow Press at the Literary Arts Institute of the College of St. Benedict, St. Joseph, Minnesota. The text is a handmade libretto for an experimental opera by Anne Carson, based on a work by the thirteenth-century mystic and heretic Marguerite Porete ... Multimedia print production by and under the direction of Mary Jo Pauly ... The text is printed from handset Twentieth Century and Caslon Bold on Rives heavyweight ... and Mohawk vellum ... Longstitch binding, in red walnut-dyed handmade stock by Cave Paper, executed by Sara Langworthy. In the standard edition of 40 copies."--Colophon.
