Aleister Crowley

Magick, Rock and Roll, and the Wickedest Man in the World

Author: Gary Lachman

Publisher: Penguin


Category: Biography & Autobiography

Page: 400

View: 899

This definitive work on the occult’s “great beast” traces the arc of his controversial life and influence on rock-and-roll giants, from the Rolling Stones to Led Zeppelin to Black Sabbath. When Aleister Crowley died in 1947, he was not an obvious contender for the most enduring pop-culture figure of the next century. But twenty years later, Crowley’s name and image were everywhere. The Beatles put him on the cover of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. The Rolling Stones were briefly serious devotees. Today, his visage hangs in goth clubs, occult temples, and college dorm rooms, and his methods of ceremonial magick animate the passions of myriad occultists and spiritual seekers. Aleister Crowley is more than just a biography of this compelling, controversial, and divisive figure—it’s also a portrait of his unparalleled influence on modern pop culture.

Pan and the Nightmare

Revised Edition

Author: James Hillman

Publisher: Spring Publications


Category: Psychology

Page: 159

View: 194

This brilliant book brings Pan back to life by following C. G. Jung's famous saying: "The Gods have become our diseases." Chapters on nightmare panic, on masturbation, rape and nympholepsy, on instinct and synchronicity, and on Pan's female loves-echo, Syrinx, Selene, and the Muses-show the goat-God at work and play in the dark drives and creative passions of our lives. Hillman's insights present the archetypal figure in the depths of nature and archetypal psychology as a method of revelation.Pan and the Nightmare (which includes a full translation of Wilhelm Roscher's masterful 19th-century mythological-pathological treatise on Pan and the demons of the night) is the most radical study of this God ever undertaken.

Nye has become known to a large public for his novels, especially Falstaff (1976) winner of the Hawthornden Prize and The Guardian Fiction Prize, and The Late Mr Shakespeare (1998).

Nye is the inheritor of a poetic tradition that runs from Donne and Ralegh to Edward Thomas and Robert Graves, wrote James Aitchison in 1990, while the critic Gabriel Josipovici has described him as one of the most interesting poets writing today, with a voice unlike that of any of his contemporaries. This book contains all the poems Nye has written since his Collected Poems of 1995, together with his own selection from that volume.

Shakespeare's Hamlet

Author: Peter Davies

Page: 74

View: 719

Peter Davies surveys the critical fortunes of Hamlet the play and Hamlet the man through the ages. He takes issue with the notion that Hamlet's tragedy is merely a matter of personal inadequacy in the face of the task set him by the Ghost, and demonstrates that the play is something much larger - a complex exploration of the depths of human corruption and evil as they are here exhibited in the world of the Danish court. In so doing he also convincingly demonstrates that the character of Ophelia has been consistently misinterpreted, underestimated and underplayed by commentators, directors and actors.
