Customer Review

on 11 April 2004
This is the book supposedly dictated through Aleister Crowley by the ancient Egyptian god Aiwass in 1904. It announces that the world is about to move from the age of the father to the age of the child (or the Age of Horus). In its apocalyptic quasi-King James Bible English it damns reason and compassion while exalting self-centredness.
This is what started Aleister Crowley on the path to modelling himself as “the Beast” and the “Master Therion.” It includes the famous motto “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law…Love is the Law, love under will.”
Gerald Suster cites this book as a premonition of the horrors to come upon an unsuspecting world during the first half of the 20th century.
It’s a small book – 50 pages with the rest taken up with a facsimile of the hand-written original. Written in such obscure language, I find it easier to take Suster’s interpretations rather than try to work out what’s actually trying to be said.
This is a chilling book if you believe in it – either that or fascinating. Whatever else he was or wasn’t, Crowley was an excellent poet.
