Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Aleister Crowley and the 20th Century Synthesis of Magick should be seen for what it originally was intended to be - a thesis produced for a Master of Arts Degree on the History and Literature of British Magic.

The question is was it worth then publishing? This is only answerable in the terms of whether you think it adds anything to the debate on who Crowley was and what he came to represent. There have been so many biographies of the man in the past few years - is there anything else to say?

Well, the only people who do in fact have anything worth saying about Crowley these days are not the biographies or historians but the magicians - those who live, practise and truly get to grips with the Thelemic Current.

Thankfully the author of this book, Dave Evans, is also one of those so that his own particular take on Crowley offers some refreshingly insightful evaluation of the great man and the position that he holds in 21st century occultism.

This is naturally a short and concise appraisal of Crowley and those who came to be influenced by him such as Jack Parsons, Kenneth Grant and Austin Osman Spare. It is a well-written academic study that is well researched and which presents Crowley in a balanced rather than fawning way.

What exactly would Uncle Al have thought of people actually making a serious study of his life and theories at university? Well, he would have been flattered I am sure - which is why Dave Evans should be congratulated for keeping the Thelemic banner flying high in the corridors of high learning.

A thoroughly good read!
