MEGATHERION: Magickal World of Aleister Crowley - by Francis King
MEGATHERION: The Magickal World of Aleister Crowley -- By Francis King
Aleister Crowley (1875 –1947) was the synthesizer of what he termed as “Magick”, a system of occult philosophy and technique outlined in such classic texts as THE BOOK OF THE LAW and MAGICK IN THEORY AND PRACTICE.
In this highly readable account of Crowley’s occult progress, Francis King examines each of the three main sources of Magick – other planes of existence, human will-power and the links between macrocosm and microcosm - this brings new light to Crowley himself and does much to explain the continued respect and admiration for his writings after all these years by such diverse individuals as occultists, artists, writers, musicians, film makers and others. Includes 12 pages of black and white photographs.
