Party for 'Aleister Crowley: Early Poetic Works'
Aleister Crowley's birthday is the occasion of the launch of this new press, and of its first title, Aleister Crowley: Early Poetic Works. Join us for the occasion, with readings, drinks, a party, and a celebration of forbidden love. Crowley’s years as a Cambridge undergraduate (1895 –1898) were a time when published an incredible amount of verse: this poetry, firmly planted within the vogue of the day, tells the tale of his doomed love affair with actor and female impersonator Jerome Pollitt and of his first steps towards occult sciences.
In this anthology, we see strongly the two themes of homosexual love and spiritual yearning. In these verses, the reader will find many facets of the young Crowley: echoes of Oscar Wilde, the tortured homosexual lover; W.B. Yeats, the seeker of spiritual truths; Arthur Symons, the prurient Decadent poet; and A.C. Swinburne, the searcher of masochistic adventures and forbidden pleasures."
This is the first title of Kamuret Press. Edited, annotated & introduced by Christian Giudice. The cover art by Cristina Francov and the foreword by Henrik Bogdan
