Aleister Crowley Early Poetic Works
Christian Giudice
This new book from the newly-formed Kamuret Press studies Crowley as a young poet, and examines four of his early poetic productions: Aceldama: A Place to Bury Strangers In, Jezebel and Other Tragic Poems, Songs of the Spirit and The Tale of Archais: A Romance in Verse. These works, written when Crowley was a Cambridge Undergraduate, reveal the story of his love affair with actor and female impersonator Jerome Pollitt. The twin themes of homosexual love and spiritual yearning paint a magnificent picture of a poet confronting taboos and seeking spiritual truths. With an introduction by Henrik Bodgan, Chris Giudice's book sheds much new light on Crowley's early passions, and finds a place for him as one of the British Decadents.
