The Eye in the Triangle: An Interpretation of Aleister Crowley by Israel Regardie (Paperback) USED

Type: Books

Aleister Crowley, the greatest Magus of the twentieth century, redefined the very basis of the Western Esoteric Tradition. His incalculably vast influence reaches through all modern occultism. Whether acknowledged or not, he is the father of the modern arts of ceremonial magick, western tantra, tarot and wicca. His devotees ascribe even greater significance to his life, regarding him as the Prophet of the Modern Age. In 1928, at the age of 53, Crowley was living in Paris when Israel Regardie, a 21 year old disciple, nervously presented himself to become Crowley's personal secretary. Thus began the most significant relationship of Regardie's life. Although they were to have a bitter parting some time later, this experience caused Regardie to devote his next five decades to spreading Crowley's message and tending the flame of his memory--at a time when that was an unpopular, unrewarding and lonely task. The Eye in the Triangle provides an accurate, humorous and brilliantly insightful look into the man whom many still regard as "The Wickedest Man in the World." Fasten your seat belts and get ready to enter the magical world of Aleister Crowley as seen through the eyes of Israel Regardie.--Quatrième de couverture.
